Exclusive Release: Rye-Finished Brandy

5-year brandy from France finished in our used 51 rye barrels for an additional 3 years.


Our distillers lovingly refer to it as “spicy grapes” due to the spice that the rye gives to the brandy’s fruitiness.

92 proof. Notes: Dried fruit, oak, vanilla, rye spice.


This rye barrel-aged brandy has a rich and complex nose, with prominent dried fruit and oak notes. The aromas are reminiscent of raisins, figs, and dates, complemented by the subtle sweetness of vanilla. On the palate, the dried fruit flavors continue to dominate, but they are accompanied by a distinct rye spice that adds a bold and warming character. The oak notes are also more pronounced, providing a robust structure and subtle smokiness. The vanilla notes reemerge as the brandy lingers on the tongue, bringing a soft and comforting sweetness that balances out the spicy rye flavors. The finish is long and satisfying, with a pleasant warmth that lingers. Overall, this rye barrel-aged brandy is a complex and well-balanced spirit that offers a unique blend of dried fruit, oak, vanilla, and rye spice. It’s a perfect sipping drink for those who appreciate the depth and richness of a well-aged brandy.
