ABOUT ROUTE 101…

Combining America’s finest rye whiskey with wine barrels from wineries which dot the majestic landscapes around the epic US Route 101 aka “The Royal Road”; we pull from the flavor left within the wine barrels and finish each batch custom to tasty perfection!  Each sip of Route 101 offers you a taste of history and your own little “getaway”!

 

Batch #001 was finished in French oak barrels from Jigar Wines in Healdsburg, Sonoma, California.  These barrels were soaked in their Merlot (5 barrels) and Cabernet Sauvignon (4 barrels) and finished for 8 months with our rye whiskey which had already aged 3 years in new charred American oak barrels.  The result is a complex concoction of beauty exuding notes of ripe plum, cherry, big oak, high spice and finishes with some marmalade and sweetness that lingers.  She truly is unique and sips great on her own but also makes a dynamite cocktail!
