Barley is the foundation of whisky, and it has found its best expression when grown in Sacramento Valley.  It is here that this Sacramento Single Malt Whisky is crafted adhering to the esteemed traditions of American Single Malt Whisky.  Comprising solely of locally sourced, meticulously malted barley from Sacramento, it matures gracefully within a freshly charred American white oak cask.

Meticulously constructed to match the exacting standards of our wine barrels, these American white oak casks boast a lighter char and a fine-tuned capacity.  This distinctive approach ensures that the carefully selected barley takes center stage, delivering an authentic sipping experience that captures the essence of true whisky craftsmanship.
