Forty Creek Barrel Select is a blend of high quality grains consisting of rye, barley and corn. To highlight the best characteristics of each grain, they are distilled separately in small batches in our copper pot still and patiently aged in American White Oak barrels. This process brings out the fruitiness and spiciness of the rye, the nuttiness of the barley, and the heartiness of the corn. The barrels chosen for Forty Creek Barrel Select are hand selected for their unique characteristics. They are charred in different levels which create a richness and toasted earthiness in the spirit.
This unique barrel selection process results in a whisky where aromas of honey, vanilla and apricot fuse with toasty oak, black walnut and spice. The flavour is rich and bold on the palate and is completed in a smooth, long finish.
