WIDOW JANE Rye Mash Oak & Apple Wood Aged Whiskey
Winner of a Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020
Hand assembled in Brooklyn this whiskey from Widow Jane is something quite unique. It was distilled from a rye mash and then aged in barrels previously used for their 10 Year Old Bourbon but with some drilled apple wood staves added. There’s still that classic cockle-warming rye character all rich caramel and fiery black pepper but there’s also apple blossom apple wood smoke baked apple and orchard grass layered over the top. Not to mention orange peel tropical fruit jam and baking spices. Although wonderful to drink neat we can’t wait to have a play with it in cocktails like a Kentucky Mac Apple Manhattan and The Apple One.
Widow Jane is small-batch Bourbon from the cobblestone streets of Red Hook Brooklyn. Their team scour the country for the finest barrels of Straight Bourbon and rye whiskey then blend them together. Finally the whiskeys are proofed (brought to the desired drinking ABV) with mineral water sourced from the Widow Jane Mine in Rosendale Upstate New York. Limestone from Rosendale’s legendary mines was used to build some of America’s most recognisable sites such as the Brooklyn Bridge the Empire State Building Grand Central Terminal the White house the Washington Monument and the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. So that water is a pretty solid foundation on which to construct a monumental whiskey. Widow Jane also distil their own spirit using non-GMO ingredients including a corn varietal called Baby Jane that’s unique to them. So keep an eye out for more to come.
Widow Jane whiskeys are non-chill-filtered to avoid stripping out any of their delicious character so you might find a little harmless sediment in the bottle.
