The grain we use to make Mischief Vodka is sustainably grown in the Cascadia bioclimate, west of the Cascade Mountains. The wheat variety that thrives here, under our wetter conditions, contributes to Mischief Vodka’s flavor- just a whisper of marshmallow and toasted nuts. Our in-house distillation starts with “Cara” soft winter wheat, freshly ground to our specifications by artisan millers. We mash-in & ferment, then double distill to 192.5 proof purity. Only the “hearts” are clean and smooth enough to become Mischief Vodka. Then, we wait. Our Vodka is “rested” at least 3 months and more often 9 months or more before bottling. Experience has taught us this waiting period is crucial for flavor and smoothness
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.
