Independence, Ore, November 19, 2014 — In yet another bold collaboration with Mother Nature, Rogue Ales & Spirits has announced the release of OREGON RYE WHISKEY.
OREGON RYE WHISKEY is brewed and distilled using Rogue Farms DreamTM Rye that is grown and malted by Rogue on its proprietary farms in Oregon.
Rogue Brewmaster John Maier comments, “From start to finish, we had control over the entire process. It has been an amazing journey to learn what it takes to turn dirt and seeds into a bright, beautiful whiskey. It has been a real labor of love and we are excited to finally share it.”
The first harvest of DreamTM Rye produced just 374 cases of whiskey, which will be released to retailers nationwide in limited quantities on December 1, 2014.
