Volume One of the Rye Project is in collaboration with Willett Family Estate. The Volume One blend consists of a very low-rye (51%) whiskey aged for 6 years in new American oak, blended with a more aggressive 6 and 7 year Rye (74%) whiskey distilled by the Willett Distillery. By design, this Rye blend reads sweeter than most Rye whiskies, while still being layered, spiced, and elegant on the back palate. The custom cork top was inspired by the knob of a baseball bat that is a family heirloom of Jon Buscemi. The textured label was created in partnership with a bespoke wine label producer in Sonoma County. More info available in Special Projects.
