Rye whisky was the traditional American saddlebag whisky. It is, as its name suggests, simply made using a larger proportion of Rye as opposed to the traditional component of corn, (which only became popular after prohibition.) Rye whisky must be produced at no more than 160 proof and be aged in new, charred oak barrels for at least two years to be designated "straight."
The Anchor Distilling Company is dedicated to creating very small batches of traditionally distilled spirits of many types and styles. They are one of the few remaining distilleries in the United States to produce a 100% Rye Whisky, Old Potrero, which is also one of the few single malt whiskeys produced in the United States. But despite its old name, Old Potrero is a new rye. Fritz Maytag, president of California's Anchor Brewery has been trying his hand at the pot still for the past several years. The relatively young first fruits were bottled uncut and unfiltered and the whiskeys are already being swooned over by whisky writers around the world. Indeed, Jim Murray quotes a colleague in his 2006 whisky Bible, stating that the Old Potrero Ryes are “the most noteworthy development in American Whiskey in living memory.”
Old Potrero 18th Century Style is bottled from the barrel without dilution. To appreciate its unique flavour, try adding a little water or serve over ice. 62.55% Alc./Vol.
