The Emerald is a highly aromatic spirit with the weight, richness, and complexity of its forbearers. In seeking to recreate a whiskey of another time and place, we feel we have created a spirit that speaks meaningfully to its provenances; Ireland of yore, and the green hills of Oregon.
Production Notes: The Emerald 1865 Straight American Whiskey is made from a mash of malted barley, unmalted barley, rye, and oats. Once the grains have been harvested, they are milled and mashed before being distilled on a handmade, direct-fired alembic pot still.
Tasting Notes: Bold aroma of oats, malt, and earthy minerals. Rich, structured flavor profile, with notes of caramel, green herbs, and fresh whipped cream. The finish is long and satisfying, with a touch of spice. Aged three to six years in mixed cooperage of French and American oak barrels.
