#016 – St. George That Boutique-y 2 Year Rye Spirit Whiskey review from WhiskyJason

WhiskyJason reviews the St. George 2 Year Rye Spirit Whiskey from That Boutique-y Rye Company

An independently bottled 2 year old rye from Californian craft distilling pioneers, St. George Spirits, bottled by That Boutique-y Rye Company. Back in 1982 Time Magazine didn’t crown a Person of the Year that year. They actually crowned ‘The Computer’ as Machine of the Year. While some may see that as an invitation for robots to rise up and take over the world, That Boutique-y Rye Company clearly agree that Machine of the Year was the right choice for 1982, but they would have chosen a different machine – Jorg Rupf’s still, with which he founded St. George Spirits in 1982 and became a trailblazer of the American craft distilling movement.

Batch 1 is a release of 400 bottles. That Boutique-y Whisky Company bottles single malts, single grains and bourbons from a variety of renowned distilleries as well as producing award-winning blended malts and blends. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic novel-style labels.


#014 – Peerless Rye Whiskey review from WhiskyJason

WhiskyJason reviews the two year old rye whiskey from Peerless Distillery in Louisville Kentucky.

The Peerless distillery is a state of the art facility and one of the most automated distilleries around. All under one roof, the grains for Kentucky Peerless are milled, cooked, fermented, double-distilled, and barreled as bourbon & rye whiskey on-site.


#009 – F.E.W. Rye Whiskey Flaming Lips Brainville Review from WhiskyJason

WhiskyJason reviews F.E.W. Rye Whiskey Flaming Lips Brainville

Celebrating five years in business, Chicago’s Few Spirits recently launched a collaboration with The Flaming Lips and artist Justin Helton to release a new rye called Brainville.

The whiskey is made with more than 51% rye and some corn as well as malted barley grown within 150 miles of the Few distillery. Aging is in new, charred American oak barrels custom-made in Minnesota. (No age statement is offered.) Like Few’s standard rye, the mash is, unusually, fermented using a French wine yeast.
