Freeland Spirits Launches Limited-Release Rye Whiskey Finished in Rum Barrels
Freeland Spirits is launching its first limited release rye whiskey finished in Magdalena Rum barrels.
The five-year-old sourced rye was transferred into four Magdalena Guatemalan Rum barrels, where it spent two years in its second maturation. This marks the first time that Freeland has offered one of its limited releases outside of the distillery’s two tasting rooms.
Freeland’s Rye Finished in Rum Barrels was blended by Master Distiller Molly Troupe. Freeland is releasing 600 bottles of the 56 percent ABV whiskey in its two tasting rooms in Portland and Lake Oswego, OR on April 23, and nationally online in 37 states via Tipxy.com on April 22. SRP is $75.
Freeland Spirits will host a release part on Saturday, April 23 in its Vaughn Street Tasting Room, with pizza from Portland’s Pizza Thief and live entertainment. “Everyone’s invited for whiskey cocktails and the chance to buy a bottle before they’re gone!” says Kuehler. The event starts at 12 noon and it is free but registration is required.
