About Catskill Provisions New York Honey Whiskey
New York Honey Whiskey is made from a mash of 80% rye and 20% malted barley, which the McKenzies source from within a 50-mile radius of their distillery. After purchasing the raw, whole grains from local farmers (they store them in holding tanks that they've nicknamed Rye-ella and Malt-ilda), the grains are milled and mashed without using any commercial enzymes. Then, the wash is distilled through a two-ton copper pot still that traveled 4,000 miles from Markdorf, Germany to upstate New York.
Following distillation, the rye is aged in freshly charred American oak casks. Once it has reached its peak flavor profile, the rye is infused with Catskill Provisions late-summer honey. Located in a small corner of the Catskill Mountains, Catskill Provisions specializes in creating raw, all-natural handmade food products using local ingredients.
This infusion of rye and honey leads to a unique flavor profile — the whiskey has a warm, spicy aroma that gives way to notes of sweet citrus, mellow honey and wildflowers on the palate. The finish is warm and bold, with a touch of ginger and oak.

About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
