Located in the heart of the historic Hudson Valley, Hillrock Estate Distillery is proud to be one of the few "field-to-glass" whiskey producers in the world, as well as the first U.S. distillery since before Prohibition to floor malt and hand craft whiskey on site from estate-grown grain. Led by owner Jeffrey Baker and renowned Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, Hillrock's commitment to quality embodies the rich history of craft distilling in the Hudson Valley.
Hillrock Estate Distillery Double Cask Rye is their “field-to-glass” rye whiskey made from organically grown rye at their own estate. The whiskey is double-matured, first in traditional oak casks and then in charred American white oak barrels. The American oak barrels were charred with #4 char and air-seasoned for over two years before assembly. The Double Cask aging process extends a wonderful balance between the spicy rye notes with the mellow, caramel sweetness. Deep golden amber in color, this whiskey starts off with the aromas of caramelized wood sugar, vanilla and rye, gradually expanding into butterscotch, cinnamon and sweet spices, leading up to a long, warm finish.
