Originally distilled in 1820 by Simeon Turley of Arroyo Hondo, New Mexico. A popular whiskey among fur trappers, traders, and Native Americans. In 1847 Turley was killed in the Taos Pueblo Revolt but the recipe survived but laid dormant until KGB spirits revived the spirit around 2000. The dry climate and high elevation in New Mexico create a unique aging process. Aromas of vanilla-cream, caramel, cinnamon, and suble virgin oak. Perfectly balance rye with spice, power, and a lean structure. Burnt orange, hints of pepper also come to mind. This is a cowboy and cowgirl whiskey, from the best saloon in town.
American Rye: A whiskey distilled from at least 51% rye. Must be aged in charred, new oak barrels (mainly American Oak). In order to be classified as a American “Straight” Rye whiskey it has to be aged for at least two years.
