April 3 @ 5:02 pm

We’re excited to share with you an extremely limited release of Single Barrel, Cask Strength Rye Whisky on Wednesday, March 30! This is Batch #1, Barrel #1 of Whisky made from scratch at Long Road Distillers. We are releasing it at a whopping 122 proof, the same level it came out of the barrel. This barrel, which just so happens to be Barrel #1, was hand-selected by our Head Distiller, Brian, for its exceptional flavors and aroma.

Each bottle of this limited release is individually numbered by one of our distillers. It was carefully distilled on our Vendome Copper & Brass Pot Still and created with West Michigan Rye and Barley (thanks Heffron Farms Market and Pilot Malt House).

To celebrate our second aged whisky release, we’re throwing a party and offering drink specials all night long! Enjoy 50% off our Single Barrel-Cask Strength Rye Whisky pours and Whisky cocktails from 4 pm to close. This will also be your first chance to take a bottle or two home with you! Cocktails include:

  • LRD Manhattan – rye whisky, sweet vermouth, aromatic bitters, cherry
  • LRD Old Fashioned – rye whisky, demerara, aromatic bitters, orange peel
  • The Last King Kong – rye whisky, lapsang souchong, lemon, soda
  • Starting in 1906 – rye whisky, apricot, orange, star anise, ginger beer

This is the second release in our Wayfarer’s Whisky Series. You can still enjoy and take home a bottle of our 93 Proof Rye Whisky, although bottles are going quickly! The Wayfarer’s Whisky Series is our line-up of small-batch whiskies to determine which mash-bills (recipes) we like best! In the coming months, we’ll release a 100% Wheat Whisky, an Irish-style Malt Whisky, and several batches of Bourbon!
