Krobar start with the same recipe as our "high rye" bourbon and after a double distillation, it's placed in barrel at 118 proof. Through evaporative loss, it's 117 proof when we bottle it straight from the cask.
117 Proof ( ABV 58.5%)
Located in San Luis Obispo, California, KROBAR Craft Distillery produces gin and vodka, bourbon, rye whiskey, malt whiskey and rum from their three production stalls.
The still is by far the most important tool in distilling, and after years of researching stills and still manufacturers, Stephen worked with Vendome Copper & Brass Works in Louisville, KY to develop custom build stills to suit the KROBAR style. Vendome has a long history in the alcohol business and since its founding around 1910, the Sherman family of Vendome has built many of the production stills used by the distilling industry over the course of 5 generations.
KROBAR founder Stephen Kroener has deep roots in the alcohol business. His grandparents were moonshiners and bootleggers in Alabama, and his father founded Silver Horse winery in Paso Robles.
Stephen grew up in Southern California and moved to Colorado for college where he played rugby and developed a better appreciation of everything ethanol related. After a seven year stint in college (he should be a doctor...but is not), he relocated to Paso Robles, California and joined his family’s winery operation. He learned the wine business from grape to glass. Starting in the vineyard and cellar to eventually running every aspect of the winery's operation.
Wanting to forge his own path, Stephen founded KROBAR Craft Distillery in 2012 after years of research and perfecting his craft. Once again learning all the aspects of the business from grain / grape to glass. Since then Stephen has been producing various styles of award winning gin, vodka, rum, bourbon, rye, and malt whiskeys.
The palate brings out notes of vanilla, banana, cinnamon, and leather, leading to a warming finish with a bit of white pepper and fresh cut wood. This is craft whiskey done right, and it's a bold rye that's worth picking up."
