    Re: 13th Colony Southern Rye

    Welcome to SB James. It was a pleasure speaking with you the other day, and thank you for participating here. I look forward to learning more about 13th Colony and your product line, current and future. Hopefully, GBS can soon make a trip to Americus to tour your facility.

    On the question regarding barrel size, I don't want to speak for James, but I'm pretty sure I noted that he said they are 53 gallon barrels.

    Good to know. Do you know if that include the French oak used to finish the rye?

    Re: 13th Colony Southern Rye

    James, welcome to SB and thanks for your post and the information. Sounds like a GBS road trip is in order.

    Has anyone here tasted the 4 yr bourbon. Would be interested in thoughts and tasting notes.

    Re: 13th Colony Southern Rye

    This stuff is making me dizzy (the topic, not the whiskey). Okay, I just read two descriptions of Prichard's rye, another possible phony, and one of them explicitly says it's from 95% rye, 5% barley, but distilled by Prichard's. (Also, the company website brags about their oh-so-smart use of small barrels.) Anyway, if this isn't an outright lie or (quite possibly) a miscommunication, maybe other distilleries indeed are using that mashbill. Perhaps they got help from MGPI? Or, perhaps one of the former two possibilities is correct.

    Re: 13th Colony Southern Rye

    I would like to suggest that if you have questions with Prichards, you should start a new thread on it. I think it would be good to keep this thread on topic and about 13th Colony. The fellow was nice enough to join and answer some of our questions regarding his company. Let's see if we can learn more, without dragging in another distilleries potential issues.

    I brought it up because it lends credence to the notion that smaller distilleries are using the 95% rye mashbill. Now we have two that claim to do so.

    I agree that it is an interesting subject, and suitable for a separate Thread.

    Re: 13th Colony Southern Rye

    Thank you for all of your interest and questions. This is my first time on a discussion board, so be patient with me. Thirteenth Colony is a small family owned company comprised of less than 10 people, so we sometimes get pulled in many different directions. I apologize for any unanswered emails. I will do my best to answer all of your questions to the best of my knowledge, and what I don’t know I will try to find out. I’ll be heading down to the distillery at the end of the week, and will try to get some answers for your distillation specific questions (as I am not our distiller.) I’ve answered a few of the questions I have definite answers for below, if I missed your question… stay tuned as I will try to have more answers for them next week when I return.

    Distillery Pictures: If you check out our Facebook page, you will find some pictures of the distillery and our equipment. (check the tagged pictures in 2013). I will also try to take a few pictures while I am down at the distillery for posting here.
    https://www.facebook.com/pages/13th-...66?sk=timeline

    Barrel Size: We use full sized 53 gallon barrels to age our whiskeys.

    Rye Mash Bill: The correct ratio is 96% Rye & 4% Malted Barley. The 95% referred to in the discussion must have been a typo that wasn’t caught in time.
    Why did we choose this Rye Mash Bill ratio?: I’ll have to do some digging to find out, but I can say that I haven’t tasted another Rye whiskey that tastes like ours on the market (working in this industry, you get a lot of opportunities to try other's products.) It has a pretty unique flavor, that holds its own in a cocktail… but if you’re anything like me, you drink it neat.

    Thanks for your patience, I’ll be back with more information next week.

    Prichard's both distills and sources. The rye is MGP. See the label, which includes the phrase "Distilled in Indiana." https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...14086001000420

    I'm not allowed to reply but I were allowed, I'd point out that their own distillery entry claims they distill it. Naughty distillery, flat out lying.

    Back on topic - (edited) maybe 13th Colony uses malted rye? 4% barley is just such a small amount.
