Tincup Straight Rye Whiskey is a tribute to the bold and spirited origins of Tin Cup, Colorado. With a fiery kick and a flavor that packs a punch, this whiskey matches the rugged spirit of the Old West.
Made from 95% Mid-Western Rye & 5% Barley, it is distilled and aged for three years before being cut to proof. The result is a highly aromatic rye whiskey with subtle spice notes that dance across your palate.
Poured over ice or in your favorite craft cocktails, Tincup Straight Rye Whiskeys' blend of sweetness and spiciness makes it one of our most versatile whiskeys yet.
"I began distilling in 1972, just three months after moving to Colorado from Missouri at the age of 22," says Jess Graber, the master distiller behind Tin Cup American Whiskey. "My neighbor left me his 10 gallon still and I began tinkering with it in my spare time, reading up on distilling techniques in library books and experimenting at home. I guess I found my calling, because after 40 years, distilling is still my passion."
Tin Cup American Whiskey is the newest expression produced by Jess Graber. The whiskey is crafted from a mash of 64% corn, 32% rye and 4% malted barley. After distillation through copper-pot stills, the whiskey is matured in new, charred white oak barrels for four to five years. Then, the whiskey is shipped to Colorado, where it is brought to proof with Rocky Mountain snowmelt.
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.
