Following the Backwoods Distilling Co. inaugural rye whisky comes their 2nd batch rye, handcrafted in the Victorian High Country. Backwoods Rye is crafted from a Heritage Ryecorn grain, once growing wild and now grown and malted exclusively by Voyager Craft Malt in the Riverina region. The mash bill contains 60% malted rye, then 27% barley, 10% wheat and 3% chocolate malt. The whisky is a vatting of two 100L American oak casks that previously held Australian Cabernet and Shiraz.
The distillery comments…
“Our spicy and nutty rye spirit, paired with the creamy soda and coconut profile of the American Oak is a match made in whisky heaven”
