Dry Fly Triticale Whiskey

Producer: Dry Fly Distillery

This one has Fleischmann and crew particularly excited. Rye whiskies tend to be bolder than other versions, but it's tough to find that particular grain growing in our fair state. Since Dry Fly uses only local ingredients, he was excited to discover that triticale, a hybrid of wheat and rye, can grow here naturally, even if it isn't indigenous.

The distillery team tried a sample batch and pronounced the results "amazing." That was nearly three years ago, and about 60 barrels have been ageing this whiskey since then. Fellow cofounder Don Poffenroth said that this might be the first time triticale whiskey has been produced commercially.

Triticale – Hybrid grain which is a cross between wheat and rye. First bred in Scotland and Sweden in the 1880's, originally for food products.
