“A rye that does appreciably and with confidence show the bright, tangy, tropical fruit side of the grain that produced colonial America's first successful whiskey.”

Straight Rye Whiskey

Our own distilled straight rye whiskey with a 100% rye mashbill balances the bold spice of rye with the tender loving sweetness of a six month finish in Amontillado sherry casks. 

92 PROOF | 46% ALC./VOL

Refuge Straight Rye Whiskey is aged for 6-8 years, blended to ensure consistent maturity has been reached and then finished in Amontillado Sherry casks, boasting a sweet, fruity characteristic that is distinctively rich and refined with notes of dried fruits and a delicate, spicy finish.

Amontillado Sherry is a drier aperitif, which complements our 100% rye mash with notes of leather, nutmeg, and tobacco. The finishing is a delicate process as the rye has already aged over 6 years and reached the desired extraction of oak. Typically, we finish for up to six months, however, weather and seasons play a momentous roll in in aging and extraction, keeping our blenders on their toes and constantly curating our spirits.

Ⓤ Certified Kosher

AGE: At least 6 years


NOSE: Rich and complex, with notes of dark fruit, oak, and spice. The sherry cask finish adds a layer of sweetness and depth to our whiskey, creating a nose that is both fruity and spicy.


PALATE: Our rye whiskey's characteristic spiciness is balanced by the amontillado sherry cask's sweetness and fruitiness. The palate features flavors of dried fruit, honey, caramel, and vanilla, as well as a warming, spicy kick.
