Hard Truth’s recently debuted “sweet mash whiskey” is a culmination of years of planning and crafting giving back to the distillers a complex rye that’s ready for prime time.
Officials at the distillery say that this sweet mash comes from a distilling process in which each batch of whiskey begins with entirely fresh ingredients. Mash bill one features 94 percent rye and 6 percent malted barley.
This is the first whiskey to be mashed, fermented, distilled, and aged entirely by Hard Truth Distilling Co. with their new, state-of-the-art distilling system designed specifically for sweet mash production, and the liquid is aged in the rickhouse that sits on Hard Truth Distilling’s 325-acre campus, in Brown County, Indiana.
There, you can find the distillery and rickhouses, tours and a tasting center, a full-service restaurant, a seasonal outdoor terrace area with a stage, a food truck, and a bar.
The distiller’s notes say this sweet mash rye whiskey has a layered and complex flavor profile as the sweetness of the grain features more prominently on the palate, with notes of bright fruit, brown sugar and mocha, and a baking spice finish.
This barrel-strength rye whiskey is a small-batch blend of 30 barrels, coming in at 115.2 proof. It has a suggested retail price of $69.95 and is available now on the Hard Truth campus and at select retailers throughout Hard Truth’s distribution areas.
