Wigle Monongahela Rye Whiskey

Wigle pot-distills its spirit grain-to-bottle

As Pittsburgh's first post-Prohibition distillery, Wigle excels in Pennsylvania-style rye, which is known for being in-your-face big.

The mash bill is high in rye and the flavor leans towards aggressive spice, rather than the soft and sweet flavors of Maryland-style rye. Wigle pot-distills its spirit "grain-to-bottle," sourcing the heirloom grains from within 300 miles, then milling, fermenting and distilling on site. It might not be as easy to find as some of the other ryes listed here, but it's worth the effort.
