Our rye whiskey has a unique grain bill made up of 60% rye, 30% wheat and 10% malted barley.  90% of our grains are sourced locally from Lancaster and Lebanon counties here in Pennsylvania.  Prior to mashing in our grains are milled to a flour like consistency.  Milling our grains to such a fine grind allows us better conversion of the grain starch into sugars; and unlike beer makers or many other distilleries we will not separate the grains from the liquid before fermentation.  Once the grains are introduced into the mash they will stay in for the entire process.  We believe that distilling "on the grain" produces a more flavorful product.
