We honor the proud beginnings of the Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey tradition with this product. Farmers from the 1790s would have used whiskey as a form of currency and their drink of choice. Barrel aging did not become popular until a couple decades later.
Like the farmers of the Whiskey Rebellion, we make the Bassett Town Whiskey in a similar style. Using a high rye mash bill with a bit of wheat to add just a hint of smoothness, we triple pot-distill this whiskey and throw it in a barrel for a night, or as long as we say 'that it would take a farmer to get to market'.
Bassett Town was the former name of our town, Washington, PA, during the Whiskey Rebellion.
