Following its awards sweep
earlier this year, nearly 5-year-old Distillery 291
has announced new, limited seasonal whiskey releases ahead on the calendar.
The first arrives next week to the tasting room and select liquor stores in the form of the 291 High Rye Colorado Bourbon Whiskey. Owner Michael Myers describes it as "a unique grain bill of 67 percent corn, 32 percent malt rye and 1 percent malt barley." Flavor wise, that's supposed to yield "a hint of caramel and cinnamon on the nose and a finish of maple syrup."
Myers shares that this new release was made on accident, when an assistant distiller and he miscommunicated, unintentionally doubling the rye in a recipe. But he's pleased with the result.
Catch samples from 5 to 11 p.m. next Wednesday, July 27 in the tasting room, as part of 291's tasting flight.
