Fact Sheet

Amador Whiskey Co. Double Barrel Rye Whiskey has a style, spice and complexity that can only be achieved by a seasoned distiller. This well-structured spirit is double barrel aged starting with new charred American oak barrels for three years, where it’s ingrained with precise flavors of baking spices, ripe blackberry and chocolate. Then the Kentucky Rye is finished in Amador County Terra d’Oro Port barrels for 9 to 12 months, finding its red hue, welcoming vanilla notes and quintessential velvety mouthfeel.

All together, Amador Whiskey Co.’s Kentucky Rye Whiskey offers a distinct savor-worthy palate, and at 92 proof this small batch 74% rye whiskey has the classic rye bite, expertly balanced with flavors of gingerbread, buttery cookie dough and toffee.
