WCD initially released their Woody Creek Colorado Straight Rye Whiskey (MSRP $49.99) in June 2014. Handmade from 100% Colorado rye, this 90-proof rye mash whiskey is both complex and extraordinarily smooth. Aged at least two years in new American white oak barrels, Woody Creek Colorado Straight Rye Whiskey embodies distinct rye character with pronounced white pepper throughout the palate, notes of citrus peel on the nose, and an oaky vanilla mid-palate. This rare 100% Colorado rye whiskey is mashed, batch distilled, aged, and blended by Woody Creek Distillers at their distillery in Basalt, Colorado
“We are extraordinarily proud to have received double gold for our Colorado Straight Rye Whiskey,” says Managing Partner Mark Kleckner, “Especially on the heals of winning double gold and Best in Class Vodka at 2015. The renaissance of American spirits is underway and we are happy to be a leader in the revival. “
Woody Creek Distillers launched their first spirit, Woody Creek 100% Potato Vodka in 2013. The spirits are currently distributed in 12 states, and will be available in 20 states by the end of 2016, including California and Florida.
