We live and breathe music here at La Crosse Distilling Co. It’s truly a part of the spirits we create and nothing goes together better than music and whiskey! This limited edition single barrel high rye whiskey was hand picked to celebrate the inaugural album release from The High Hawks. As the fellas in the band like to say, “Let’s go High Hawkin’!”
Shortly after we opened our doors at La Crosse Distilling Company we were presented with an opportunity. An opportunity to help another Wisconsin distillery out by acquiring a portion of their whiskey barrels. We took a trip in the middle of the night, high hawkin’ it, to make it a reality. One of many mash bills that caught our attention was a high rye whiskey, which we’ve been aging in the rickhouse for the last several years. High rye whiskeys are just that, a whiskey with a lot of rye in the recipe which creates a deep character and richness.
High Hawk Straight Rye Whiskey will be rolled out one barrel at a time as single barrel picks. While the mash bills are similar, they will all have their own subtle and unique flavor profiles depending on where they were located in the rickhouse among other factors. We are grateful to be able to share these barrels with you.
