Old Elk Straight Rye Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Old Elk Straight Rye Whiskey

Old Elk Distillery was founded in 2013 by Curt and Nancy Richardson (creators of OtterBox and Blue Ocean Enterprises) in Fort Collins, Colorado. The label is a collaboration with Master Distiller Greg Metze of MGP fame, a bourbon specialist with over 40 years of experience in whiskey development. They consistently produce top quality handcrafted vodkas, gins, and bourbons. Named Colorado "Distillery of the Year" by the New York International Spirits Competition for two consecutive years (2016-2017), the Old Elk Distillery produces Old Elk Bourbon, Dry Town Gin, Dry Town Vodka, and Nooku Bourbon Cream.Their bourbon is handcrafted using a signature Slow Cut proofing process, which is said to enhance the bourbons flavors through a meticulous technique where the spirit is cut to proof, left to rest, and the process is repeated over the course of multiple weeks. This method takes significantly longer than the traditional 24-48 hour proofing process. This extra time allows the flavors to mingle, resulting in a smoother, more balanced bourbon. As less heat is produced, the lighter flavors stay in the liquid.Greg Metze has distilled over 280 million bottles of rye whiskey in his illustrious career. Old Elks Straight Rye Whiskey taps into his vast knowledge with a mash bill of 95 percent rye and 5 percent malted barley, employing their Slow Cut process to cut the liquid down to proof with Colorado mountain water. Aged 5 years and bottled at 100 proof, its a clean, crisp, and spicy expression that has won numerous prestigious awards, including being named "Best American Rye Whiskey" at the 2020 International Whiskey Competition.Get your bottle today!
