LAWS Bonded San Luis Valley Rye / Bottled-In-Bond Rye (DC ONLY - 1 PER GUEST)
Bottled-In-Bond Rye / usa / 100 proof / 750 ml
LAWS Whiskey House is a newer distillery out of Colorado, and one the better “craft” distilleries on the market. Much of what you can buy with a 6+ year age statement for ryes from craft distillers is sourced so this one is interesting to us. LAWS marketing makes the point that their climate is what makes them unique, specifically that their aging is more dynamic because Colorado, unlike Kentucky, still sees significant winter time temperature fluctuation. If there can (or even should) be terroir in United States whiskey, a number of unique factors come into play that make LAWS Rye a good argument in favor of making the distinction. Growing of the locally sourced winter wheat, high altitude distillation (which lowers distillation temperatures and makes a more aromatic yield), and aging in a dynamic climate all do play different roles in shaping this whiskey.
