Woody Creek Distillers Colorado 100% Straight Rye Whiskey
In our 2023 TAG Global Spirits Awards Woody Creek Distillers Colorado 100% Straight Rye Whiskey was our Best in Show Rye Whiskey.
Woody Creek is setting the standard for American craft spirits. They never take short-cuts creating their spirits from their own farm grown materials and grains sourced from trusted Colorado farms. They distill their spirits in custom-made stills from Carl Artisan Distilling Systems — Germany’s oldest distillery fabricator.
Every Woody Creek Distillers spirit that we have evaluated at TAG Global Spirits Awards has been stellar.
Why Our Judges Loved this Spirit
The brilliant, deep golden color catches the eye showing obvious signs of wood aging without added color. The aromatics are powerful yet restrained, focused on ripe orchard fruits with accents of citrus, rye bread, and dried herbs. The palate delivers classic Rye spice with dried black berries, baked apple, and ideally integrated oak notes. It’s aged in new American oak for a minimum of four years.
Woody Creek Distillers spirits are distributed in nearly 20 states and you can find all current releases for purchase on their website.
