Founded in 2010 Union Horse is an upstart Kansas City distillery that is family-owned and operated by the Garcia siblings. Focusing on craft whiskies, Union Horse buys its grain from local farmers and mills it at the distillery, giving them much better control over their grain. Made from 100% rye, this whiskey is fermented over 5 to 7 days employing the classic sour mash method. This Rye is gently distilled in a 500-gallon copper hybrid still named Chester Copperpot, before being matured in new Missouri Oak barrels for up to 5 years.
Union Horse Reserve Rye Whiskey has a rich aroma of spice, clove and cinnamon. Notes of citrus and butterscotch initially dominate the palate, and give way to bold notes of rye bread, ginger and oak. The finish lingers quite a while and offers touches of caramel and rye.
