With a complex blend of hand-selected straight rye whiskeys, Cooper Spirits has released Hochstadter’s Vatted Straight Rye Whiskey. Hochstadter’s has been aged 14-15 years with a blend of whiskeys from distilleries across North America. Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Alberta, Canada.
This Rye Whiskey is made via a process known as vatting—a method traditionally used in Scotch production where single-malt whiskies are blended together without the addition of grain spirit. The vatting process created a smooth and full-flavored straight rye whiskey with notes of blackstrap, nutmeg, mace, clove, German-style rye bread and sour cherry. The spirit is non-chill filtered to preserve its nuances and robustness.
“I hand-selected each of the ryes in this blend to create an incredibly flavorful spirit that we believe will be a unique asset to the bartending community and whiskey fans,” says Robert Cooper, third-generation distiller and Founder of The Cooper Spirits Co. “With a significant portion of 8-year-old rye, Hochstadter’s Vatted Straight Rye Whiskey is smoother yet more complex than the many one-dimensional ryes currently on the market. It’s the ultimate expression of maximum intensity with impeccable balance.”
Hochstadter’s can be enjoyed straight, over ice, or as a rich cocktail ingredient in classic cocktails like the old fashioned the Manhattan or julep. Contact us today to reserve your bottle of this Vatted Rye Whiskey today.
