The Sonoma County Distilling Company was founded in 2010 in the heart of Sonoma County with a ”grain to glass’ approach to production. Every aspect is handled in-house including the mashing and fermentation of grains, direct-fired copper alembic pot distillation, American oak barrel aging, bottling and labeling. It’s a philosophy that resonates with many small Australian distillers. Perhaps not surprisingly, several tasters found strong resemblances here to Belgrove’s 100% Rye whiskies from Tasmania. This batch has been aged 2 years in new American oak, plus 6 months in used oak.
