What You SHOULD Be Drinking & Gifting Now? Leopold Bros Three Chamber Rye Whiskey Holiday Edition

Perhaps the geekiest distilled spirit contrived in the past 50 years!

Leopold Bros Three Chamber Rye Whiskey Holiday Edition

First, some history:
For more than a century, American Rye Whiskey was almost exclusively produced in what was knows as a Three Chamber Still — a still that extracted not only distillate but, more importantly, unlocked oils and aromas hidden in the grains. The result was marketed as “heavy-bodied” — whiskey with complex flavors and a viscous finish. The last Three Chamber Still was destroyed just after World War II, thus ending a time-honored American tradition.

Back to the present:
This Rye Whiskey…

…is the result of over 15 years of research. Todd and Scott Leopold re-engineered a Three Chamber Still from old manuscripts. They worked with local farmers to grow the heritage Abruzzi rye used by pre-Prohibition distillers. They brought a departed American tradition back to life. All right here in Denver.

Pete Marczyk has some thoughts…
This is perhaps the geekiest distilled spirit contrived in the past 50 years. The Leopold Brothers possess passion, curiosity, and knowledge that far surpass their years. Whaddaya get when you combine a Stanford engineer with a Siebel Institute Master Distiller?

This Three Chamber Rye Whiskey.

They commission the heirloom rye grown in Colorado; they malt it themselves; they mash and ferment it with their proprietary, wild micro flora; they distill it in a one-of-a-kind pre-Prohibition-style three-chamber still of their own heavily researched design; they age it in proprietary casks in a warehouse of their own design with dirt floors and no heating or cooling; then they bottle, label, and box it all themselves.

Yeah, it’s special.

This is an extremely limited production — Marczyk Fine Wines received 30 bottles. If there’s a better gift for a whiskey lover, we don’t know what it is.
