"We took our time to establish our bourbon and rye as respected top-shelf products, and finally reached a point where we could discuss different product innovations. We've devised one of the most unique and flavorful barrel finishes that has ever been made: a Peerless Rye Whiskey finished in a Barrel-Aged Absinthe barrel. I wanted something that would provide the perfect contrasting notes to allow both the rye and the absinthe to be appreciated. Bold, exciting, intriguing, and bursting at the seams with flavor, this crossover is the perfect example of what a few artisans with big ambitions can accomplish when they come together."

About the Product

"This project allowed us to exhibit our creativity to create something that is truly one-of-a-kind. Our Rye finished in absinthe boldly showcases elements from both spirits while remaining grounded in its whiskey roots. From licorice and Sazeracs to caramel and oak, this whiskey with a twist embodies the skill and uniqueness of the artisans behind it."
