About Old Potrero Single Malt Straight Rye WhiskeyOld Potrero was founded in 1871 by Gottlieb Brekle. In 1965, Fritz Maytag purchased Anchor Distilling, saving it from bankruptcy. In 1977, Maytag moved Anchor to its current Potrero Hill location.
In 1993, Maytag opened Anchor Distilling Company and began distilling out of the San Francisco Bay Area. Staying true to its original vision of “old-style” whiskey traditional whiskeys that American distillers once produced, Anchor Distilling produces whiskey in small copper-pot stills, in small batches.
This straight rye whiskey was aged in new handmade charred oak barrels. With traditional barrel making, the cooper heats the staves over a fire of oak chips, which allows them to bend and form into the barrel. During this charring process, the inner part of the barrel becomes slightly toasted.
In the early 19th century, coopers were learning that if they allowed the heat to perpetually, burn, the inside of the barrel would burst into flames and become charred. This is the traditional manner in which handmade oak barrels-charred impart rich tones and unique characteristics to the final spirit.
Crafted from a mash bill of 100% malted rye. Old Potrero is bottled at 97 proof (48.5% ABV) with no age statement. This single malt has playful notes of citrus, cinnamon, and sweet candied notes.

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.
