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 Solera Aged Bourbon Whiskey is the first bourbon in the world to be aged in this manner. It is produced by marrying mature seed bourbon with mature estate bourbon, then finishing the blend in twenty year old Oloroso sherry casks before bottling. The resulting spirit offers a pronounced nose of caramel, dried fruit, vanilla, oak and spice, accented by an elegant floral note. The complex, full-bodied palate opens with rich notes of brown sugar, molasses and toffee, quickly followed by roasted corn, clove, cinnamon and a touch of spicy rye. Characteristic Oloroso sherry notes of walnut, fig and candied fruit merge with caramel and butterscotch on the long, balanced finish.
