Bonticou Crag Straight Single Malt Rye is made from 100% Hudson Valley rye from our own and neighboring farms. We malt the rye ourselves, kiln it to a light toast, and mash in open-top wood fermenters. As with all Coppersea spirits, we distill twice in direct-fired alembic stills.
Bonticou Crag takes its name from the peak overlooking our farm, and is an encapsulation of a late-19th C style New York whisky.
Bonticou Crag is full and mellow on the palate, with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper.
