Most Righteous Bourbon (750mL)

Nestled in the foothills of the Catskill mountains and located just moments away from the site of the original Woodstock Music Festival, Catskill Distilling Company honors the rich history of the Sullivan County Catskills a unique blend of tradition and revolution.Over three decades ago, Monte Sachs Catskill Distilling Companys founder and distiller attended veterinary school at the University of Pisa in Italy. After class each day, Sachs would meet with an Italian farmer named Bernardini, who taught Sachs how to distill grappa. "He taught me about the importance of sourcing quality ingredients from small farms and about how the shape and size of a still is reflected in the weight and mouthfeel of the spirits," says Sachs.Catskill Distilling Companys Most Righteous Bourbon is the result of a collaboration between Sachs and Lincoln Henderson, the creator of Woodford Reserve Bourbon and Gentleman Jack Tennessee Whiskey. Sachs sources a mash of 70 percent corn, 20 percent rye and 10 percent malted barley from Cochecton Mills, a local farm in upstate New York, and then mills the grains inside his 5,000 square-foot distillery using a hammer mill.After the bourbon and rye have been distilled, Sachs pours the whiskies into 25-gallon, charred American oak casks and allows them to mature. "Much of the way they taste is because of our maturation house," says Sachs. The casks are placed in Catskill Distilling Companys temperature-controlled warehouse, which was specially designed to accelerate the whiskeys maturation process. The temperatures in the warehouse are constantly monitored and altered in order to increase the exposure of the spirits to the oak. After a two-year slumber, the bourbon and rye are brought to proof and bottled by hand.Most Righteous Bourbon has an aroma of caramel and fudge, with initial notes of butterscotch, toffee molasses and dried fruits on the palate. The flavors give way to slightly spicier notes of cinnamon, ginger and a touch of spice before leading to a soft, smooth finish. Most Righteous Bourbon earned the Gold Medal at The Fifty Best Tasting Competition in 2012 and was "highly recommended"in F. Paul Pacults Spirit Journal. Pick up a bottle of each today!
