Double Barreled. First in a 1/2 size new oak barrel, #3 char, which increases surface area to build flavor and color more quickly. Then it is transferred to a one-use Bourbon barrel to decrease harsh tannins and develop nuanced flavors. Artfully aged, this whiskey is light bodied and easy to sip on with its mellow honey and vanilla flavors.
At Fremont Mischief, all our whiskeys are exclusively Rye because in our growing area – the Skagit Valley, WA & Willamette Valley, OR, – rye grain can be grown sustainably. Corn, the major grain in bourbon whiskey…cannot. Chemicals are required to grow corn here. Mischief has been distilling Rye Whiskey for nearly a decade, and by now, rightfully consider ourselves “rye experts”.
We make all our Mischief Rye Whiskeys traditionally, with techniques used by few in the distilling industry. All our Rye Whiskeys are “High-Rye” – 80% to 85% Rye grain and 15% to 20% Malted Barley. We take the extra time, attention and investment required to create Mischief’s “High-Rye Whiskey”. For us – the beautiful complex flavor and rich mouth-feel is well worth it!
As we approach our 10thanniversary, Fremont Mischief offers four award-winning High-Rye Whiskeys, all barrel-aged from 4 to 7 years. Try one, try them all…we’re sure you’ll like the results. Neither too spicy nor harsh, Mischief Whiskeys are graceful & smooth, each different with flavors of tea, spice, vanilla, toasted nuts & dried fruit.
