Their rye is made with an heirloom variety of the grain grown for them in the San Luis River Valley at the Cody Family Farm. Fermented naturally in open air, distilled slowly and at a cooler temperature, barreled in full size 53 gallon American oak from Independent Stave, and bottled after three years at 100 proof. Notes include sweet BBQ spices, dark chocolate malt, herbal tea, cocoa, granola, and rhubarb.

Staff Pick Notes

It's time for rye to get a little love. I know, I know, bourbon is all the rage, and that's all well and good, but next time you find yourself reaching for a bottle of the brown stuff, may I suggest it be rye. This rye, for starters. A.D. Laws is, in their own words, a "grain to glass" distiller out of Denver, Colorado, and each batch is made using heirloom grains from Colorado family farms. The rye is assertively spicy on the nose, most reminiscent of a well-done piece of Rye toast straight out of the oven. It then mellows to a lovely maltiness that brought to mind a box of just-opened Cheerios. According to the distillers, this balance comes from their 50/50 blend of raw and malted rye. On the palate, the savory notes of rye toast mingled with orange rind, toffee, and baking spices. I highly recommend this for your next Manhattan.
