Barleycorn Gold Winner

December 2020 — Batch 001

Gold in the John Barleycorn Awards. Judges noted "A clean, dry nose hides a beautiful, supple sweetness on the palate. Lots of dried fruit, chocolate, and vanilla, followed by a gentle but flavorful oaky finish. In a nutshell, I love this whiskey."

Resting while we work

Resting while we work

When we set out to find a home for Echo Spirits, it took us nearly three years to find the right space. While we were looking, we decided it made sense to see if a local distillery would lend us their still and some storage space to get something into barrels and aging. We took our rye whiskey recipe to our friends at Middle West Spirits and they were gracious enough to help us out. So in the summer of 2018, we spent a few days in their distillery having them help us make a big batch of rye!

We preach the ethos of Knowing Your Distiller, so transparency on this is important to us. Many distilleries are less actual distilleries and more brands. They purchase all of their spirits, label them as if they made them, and will never tell you anything different.

While our rye whiskey wasn't made on our equipment, it was made with our hands and our minds. We taste-tested as the barrels were aging, ensuring the utmost quality. When it came time to bottle, we tasted and tasted (and tasted) until we were sure of the right proof for our spirit, and our hands touched every single bottle with care. 

Our goal is to move all of our rye production in-house, but because our rye takes two years to age, it will be a little while before that starts to trickle out into bottles. Rest assured that we will be making a very big deal out of that day!
