Our first barrels will tell the story of a journey we began a decade ago. 

When we decided to make rye whiskey, we wanted to learn every aspect of the craft. How the trees are selected from the forest, how the land is rested, how to preserve the health and diversity of the soil, how to minimize our environmental impact and, most importantly, how we can do better with every barrel we produce. The status quo of whiskey production is actively depleting our lands of nutrition and polluting our rivers and streams, while selling whiskey that largely comes from the same factories.

Phyllis won’t be a part of that. That does not fit our mission to reconnect agriculture with cocktail culture. If we plant seeds in the ground, we feed the soil. If we put whiskey in a barrel, we do it with patience. And if you’re going to buy a bottle of Phyllis Rye whiskey, you’re going to know it’s made the right way. 

After years of patiently waiting, we’re excited and proud to share the second release with you.

Phyllis & Her Walk in the Woods: Double Oaked

Phyllis’ Walk in the Woods series is a journey into unique oak cask finishes with our signature Phyllis Rye Whiskey blend. Each release is a celebration of rich rye whiskey tradition while looking ahead to new possibilities and explorations.

The first in the series is a Double Oaked blend of some of our oldest, most complex Hardwick distilled Rye Whiskey, and some of our favorite barrels produced at our new distillery in Montpelier.

A final rest in used Moscatel and Rye barrels rounds out this complex and well balanced rye whiskey. Her Walk in the Woods is a refreshing journey off the path of what’s expected.

Bottles will be available ONLY at our distillery in Montpelier beginning Friday, March 8th while supplies last. Limit 2 bottles per person.
