High Rye Light Whiskey

Limited Edition House Series Whiskey Kissed by White American Oak

The perfect mix of rye and wheat.
Dark fruit aromatics on the nose, rye spice on the finish.

Distillation Process

We distill our light whiskey from organic rye and a pinch of wheat grown by family farmers. It is intentionally aged for no more than a couple of weeks in a combination of used charred oak barrels and toasted oak barrels that are made with white American oak from local stave-maker, Staggemeyer Stave Company. This process allows the spice of the rye and the sweetness of the wheat to come shining through with just a kiss of oak.

Our Handcrafted Spirits

This is our promise to be caretakers of this beautiful land. All of our spirits are made from 100% organic ingredients and sourced from local and regional family farmers as much as possible. We work with farmers who are growing open-pollinated crops which support pollinator habitat and healthy soil as well as a healthy environment for us all. These heirloom and open-pollinated crops also produce deeper and richer flavor profiles. You will taste the difference.

Serve With

Our house old-fashioned is made with High Rye Light Whiskey, and guests are always surprised at how easy-drinking it is given how spirit forward the cocktail is made. It is also enjoyed neat or on the rocks. Light whiskey is a fairly unexplored spirit category, so experiment with it and let us know what you come up with!

Made In La Crosse

We are sourcing most of our ingredients for our spirits right here in our own backyard from local farmers. Our distiller is taking those locally sourced ingredients and distilling them at our facility in downtown La Crosse. Every step of the process is handcrafted and made in house.

The light music of whiskey falling into glasses made an agreeable interlude.
