About 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 bourbon’s 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 Elk's Straight Rye Whiskey taps into his vast knowledge with a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% 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, it's 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.

About Rye

As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin.
It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.

By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.

Enticing aromas of rye spice, honey, oak, black pepper, peach, cinnamon sugar, peach cobbler, and vanilla cream lead the charge on the nose. Its bold and velvety palate has more spice, allspice, and peach, culminating with lingering caramel, oak, and dryness on the finish.
