As we enter our 9th year as distillers, it is our pleasure to offer our customers this fine whiskey aged 6 to 7 years. Mischief Rye is our oldest and most sophisticated high-rye whiskey. Our grains are sustain-ably grown and sourced exclusively from the region called “Cascadia”, the rich valleys west of the Cascade Mountains. The Rye varieties grown here contribute to what we call our “Northwest profile” – smooth, graceful rye whiskey flavor not overly spicy nor harsh. The nuttiness and full-bodied texture come from Pilot barley, malted by Skagit Valley Malting. We finish the whiskey in our finest “bespoke barrels” made from air-dried, new American White Oak, toasted and charred to our specifications.
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.
