Backwoods Wild Rye 42% 500ml $84.56
A Heritage Ryecorn is the chief ingredient in this Wild Rye. It delivers an earthy, fresh rye bread aroma, toasty/biscuit like sweetness and a classic dry, spicy finish. Their mash bill also includes barley (for sweetness) and wheat (for nuttiness). And finally, adding a small amount of chocolate malt. You will notice this on the finish, as it lingers on the pallet, urging your next sip. After fermenting with a selection of speciality yeasts, they finish the process with the lid open. This allows for a secondary fermentation as the mash is infected with local airborne yeasts, particular only to Backwoods. The wash is distilled twice in a custom-designed copper pot still, and a very tight cut is made to ensure that only the gentlest portion of the hearts is taken. What remains is right in this bottle. A spirit that is rich in spice and sweetness. Handcrafted from grain to glass. Backwoods Distilling Co. source all of our grain exclusively from expert maltsters, Voyager Craft Malt in the Riverina region. Tasting Notes: Aromatic and doughy on the nose, with a earthy mouthfeel of hazelnuts and fresh toasted bread followed by a long nutty finish with moderate pepper spice. Recent Awards: Bronze Medal, 2019 (Royal Australian Spirit Awards)
