About Crater Lake Straight American Rye WhiskeyCrater Lake Straight American Rye Whiskey is a stunning rye expression that's been aged for 2 years in 53-gallon American oak barrels with #4 char. Made with a 100% rye mash bill, the rye is sourced from the Northwest. When the whiskey is ready, it's cut to proof with Cascade Mountain water. Bottled at 80 proof, the result is a spectacular rye of a bright honey color that begins with smooh flavors of creamy toffee and vanilla, developing further into peppery spices and soft oak notes. Best enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a rye-forward cocktail, this is truly a classic American rye.
Crater Lake Straight American Rye Whiskey was awarded Double Gold at Seattle International Spirits Competition, Gold at International Craft Competition, and Silver at The North American Bourbon & Whiskey Competition.
