Wolves Whiskey partners with Willett Family Estate on Volume One of the Rye Project. The blend consists of a very low-rye (51%) whiskey aged for 6 years in new American oak, blended with a more aggressive 6 and 7 year Rye (74%) whiskey distilled by the Willett Distillery. The expression will be released on December 6th.
While well-balanced for a unique Rye expression, the majority of the Volume One blend is the renowned Willett 6 and 7 year Rye. The custom cork top was inspired by the knob of a baseball bat that is a family heirloom of Jon Buscemi.
The textured label was created in partnership with a bespoke wine label producer in Sonoma County.
