From the birthplace of American Rye Whiskey, Wigle Whiskey makes each batch of Rye Whiskey from local, organic grains that the distillery mills on-site the same day it starts each batch. Wigle distills in small batches in a traditional copper pot still to preserve the robust, spicy character of the rye grains. With this Whiskey, we work to restore the whiskey tradition to Western Pennsylvania, birthplace of Monongahela Rye Whiskey and home of the most robust, spicy ryes historically produced in America.
Wigle Whiskey is one of a handful of distilleries in the United States that produces every spirit it makes from Grain to Bottle. Each of Wigle's batches in this small cask series is barreled in small 15 gallon charred oak casks for more than a year before it is hand bottled. While no two batches are the same, as they each reflect the evolving terroir of Western Pennsylvania from year to year as well as the perspective of distiller at the time it was crafted, Wigle Rye is assertively spicy and earthy.
