Volume One of the Rye Project is in collaboration with Willett Family Estate. Wolves and Willett Master Distiller Drew Kulsveen selected barrels of 7 and 6 year straight Rye whiskey with a 74% Rye mashbill from House A, South Rick 14, and House H, South Rick 6. Between the the 51% Rye and the Family Estate Rye barrels, we found balance in a Willett-dominant blend and at 103 proof for Batch 1. This low-content (51%) rye whiskey was aged for 6 years in new American oak.
“We want to deliver straightforward and balanced expressions of the best rye in the world, in a lower-rye format,” said Jon Buscemi, Wolves co-founder. “We started from a place of sweet more than spice, and built from there.”
Bottled at 51.1% ABV - 103 Proof
