The ultra-premium brand is a small batch whiskey from Tuthilltown Spirit, a farm distillery in Gardiner, New York, in the heart of the Hudson Valley. The first legal pot-distilled rye whiskey to be distilled in the Hudson Valley in over 70 years, Hudson Manhattan Rye is distilled in a traditional copper pot still from whole grain rye and pure spring water. The whiskey is then matured in new charred oak barrels for less than four years and bottled unfiltered. It is hand-filled, capped, waxed and numbered.
Hudson Manhattan Rye is a 92 proof work of art. The handcrafted whiskey has a deep amber hue, a satiny lightweight body and a wafting bouquet laced with the aromas of spice, toffee, dried fruit and vanilla. The entry is pleasantly spicy and quickly fills the mouth with honey, cherries and the flavor of freshly baked rye bread. The long, spicy finish has a hint of smoke.
