Five and 20 Straight Rye Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Five and 20 Straight 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 award-winning Straight Rye Whiskey expression that is at the center of their whiskey lineup is based on a mash bill of 80 percent NY rye and 20 percent NY malted barley. After it has been pot-distilled, its aged for 18 months in new, charred American oak barrels, resulting in plenty of char and spice notes in the 90-proof spirit. Its made to be smoother and more approachable than typical rye whiskeys. Grab your bottle today!
