Sudden Wisdom Rye

IMG_7659The mash bill for Sudden Wisdom Rye is composed of 100%  rye, which we grow, mill, ferment, distill and bottle.  The first releases have spent at least two years resting in 53 gallon, heavy char, American white oak casks. With heartening notes of spice, dried ripe apple, and autumn leather, Sudden Wisdom is evocative of Neil Young’s Live Rust, according to distiller Christopher Conley.

We release three barrels (75 cases) every other month, so stock may run low at times. By casking 48 barrels a year we will gradually increase the age of our standard release.  Special cask expressions are forthcoming in sherry, cognac, and Sauternes.
