Five and 20 Port Finish Rye Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Five and 20 Port Finish Rye Whiskey

The Five and 20 operation stands on 3 great pillars: versatility, self-sufficiency, and sustainability. Their facility is equally well-suited for distilling, brewing, and blending, producing vodka, gin, whiskey, brandy, as well as various styles of beer. They employ a 500-liter Christian Carl still for their higher-proof and clean spirits, and a 2500-liter Vendome pot still for whiskeys. They grow most of their corn, rye, and oats on their own farm and source the remaining from neighboring ones.Head Distiller Joe Nelson has been brewing since 2008 and has focused his know-how and passion into distilling and all forms of fermentation. You can visit the Westfield Wonder which includes the Five and 20 Distillery year-round to try out the spirits and beers right at their source, as well as visit the Mazza Chautauqua Wine Cellars with New York wines, or sit down for a farm-fresh seasonal meal at their Bird eatery.The Port Finish Rye Whiskey expression stands out from the crowd. Its built on a mash bill of 80 percent NY rye and 20 percent NY malted barley and has spent a minimum of 18 months in new charred American oak. It is then finished for 2 and a half years in extremely fresh American port wine casks which used to hold their own Mazza Vineyards port less than 24 hours before being filled with whiskey. The aging brings with it notes of caramel and vanilla to balance the rye spice, while the super fresh port casks impart the liquid with a beautiful ruby color, as well as rich notes of red wine, dark fruit, and chocolate.Pick your bottle up today!
