Redwood Empire Rocket Top Bottled in Bond Rye Whiskey
This rare whiskey was bottled under the strict tenents of the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. Aged in the temperate climate of the Northern California coast, the original distillate was altered only by the addition of pure water from the Russian River Valley aquifer. This is the purest expression of Redwood Empire’s craft.
The Redwood Empire stretches from San Francisco to Humboldt Bay and on to the Oregon border. The region is home to majestic coastal redwoods, some more than 2,000 years old. The Patriarch Forest in Humboldt Redwoods State Park is home to Rocket Top, a tree reminiscent of a 365-foot-tall bottle rocket. This rye is as complex and extraordinary as the tree it represents.
