    I was just looking at Zingerman's Roadhouse whiskey list and I see this 13th Colony Southern Rye.
    Then I do a search for it and check out their website.
    So I thought I'll see if anyone on SB.com has anything on it and here we are with a new thread on the subect.
    (btw, I get impressed easily)
    They say they use local ingrediants when they can, does rye grow in GA?
    I thought rye needed a cooler climate like the northeast and the plain states.
    96% rye sounds interesting but dissapointed in the 2 year age.
    I'm going to try it Tuesday, I'm skipping work and my bride and I are going into Ann Arbor for Christmas shopping and of course Zingerman's.
    Are they saying local to where? Maybe they mean local to where the source distills it.

    Americus, Georgia is not known for rye, peanuts yes, but not rye.

    Rocktown Distillery of Little Rock makes their Rye Whiskey from Rye grown on their own farm in Northeast Arkansas. Haven't tried it yet. I believe it is aged for only 3 years in American Oak. Still can't wait to try it.

    How exactly does that make the whisky any better?

    I think KH's point is that rye can be grown in a hot and humid climate, such as NE Arkansas (and Americus, GA) can be.

    Re: 13th Colony Southern Rye

    Back on topic has anyone actually tried it? Frankly I'm a little discouraged seeing more and more shelf space occupied by crafts, NDP, NAS, and droves of moonshine.

    I can only assume that it really is selling and is profitable for dealers.

    Re: 13th Colony Southern Rye

    Of course they can be, we have Mennonite farmers who grow wheat in Mississippi, though they have to do it on a crop rotation basis to prevent an infestation of mildew or ergot endemic to a head grain crop grown in the hot, humid South. The fact it can be done doesn't make it a good idea. A dog can be taught to walk on his hind legs but that doesn't make him hunt any better.

    My question remains, if they plan to make the best product how is that helped by using local grains?

    Excellent question I thought that tanssaafl picked one of these up, but may be thinking of something else. I haven't, but am curious to hear feedback.

    I don't care what it is...tanstaafl would be a good guess to have picked it up!
