Our friends at Corbin not only make amazing farm-to-bottle sweet potato vodka, they also make incredible rye whiskey. In fact, they have been quietly growing, fermenting, distilling and aging rye on their farm for the past few years. Its nose shows a fine balance between spicy rye grain and sweet oak while the palate offers traditional notes of baking spice and vanilla that leads into a silky smooth and endlessly long finish. This is what all rye should taste like. If you're a fan of rye whiskey, you'll want to stock up while you still can.
For five generations, the Souza family has put their love and dedication into growing one of the most nutritious vegetables in the world - the sweet potato. Now they're taking this tradition to exciting new places. They've discovered that this remarkable ingredient can lend its delicious character to all kinds of spirits - from vodka, to whiskey, to liqueurs. They handcraft their farm-to-bottle spirits in small batches, working with a team of hard-working people who have a true passion for what they do. Currently they produce two spirits: Vodka, produced from their yearly sweet potato harvest, and rye whiskey is distilled from Merced Rye that has been planted between sweet potato harvests to help replenish nutrients in the fields. Over the next few years they plan to introduce a number of other unique small-batch, farm-to-bottle spirits.
