"The Rye Renaissance: Ironton's Colorado Straight Rye Malt Whiskey"

A Bold Blend from the Rockies

Ironton Distillery's Colorado Straight Rye Malt Whiskey is a harmonious blend that encapsulates Colorado's adventurous spirit and rugged beauty. By marrying locally-grown pale and chocolate rye malts, each custom roasted to bring out their rich, complex flavors, Ironton crafts a whiskey that redefines the traditional rye experience. The inclusion of barley introduces a subtle fruitiness, perfectly complementing the rye's inherent spice, resulting in a complex and inviting whiskey.

Crafted with Care

The journey of Ironton's Rye Malt Whiskey begins with the Stripping Still, affectionately known as "Karl," which plays a pivotal role in refining the spirit to its essence. Aged in 53-gallon New American oak barrels, the whiskey develops its unique character, embracing the boldness of the new oak while maintaining the delicate balance of flavors.
