Broadslab Flue-Cured Single Barrel
A RYE WHISKEY OF THE LAND
A true farm-to-bottle rye whiskey, Broadslab Flue-Cured Rye Whiskey is 100% grown, mashed, distilled, matured, and bottled on our farm. Through unique blending techniques, this bourbon is created to be enjoyed on the rocks or in your favorite whiskey cocktail.
All of our whiskeys are distilled in a 500 gallon, all copper, direct fired, pot still that I designed and had built from scratch when we opened the distillery in 2012. All grains used in our mash bills are grown, harvested, stored and milled on our farms and in our distillery. We create 1,000-gallon batches, that are open fermented on the grain, using 2,500 pounds of grain. We then strip distill on the grain prior to running the finish distillation. All of our whiskeys are hand crafted and produced in small batches in a time-honored tradition using non-GMO grains.
Our whiskeys are true grain-to-glass products that are hand-crafted and produced in small batches. We grow the very grain used in the mash bill for all of our whiskeys. The mash is fermented, on the grain, in open fermentations, strip distilled on the grain, and finished distilled in our unique, one-of-a-kind 500-gallon copper pot still.
Casks are finished in a flue-cured tobacco tradition (patent pending), creating a complex and unique, one-of-a-kind whiskey.
We are proud of our unique flue-cured process and the true hand-crafted, small batch bottle created from each batch.
Our ‘Flue-Cured’ process (patent-pending) is a unique, one-of-a-kind, technique for aging our whiskeys. We put our whiskey in new American white oak barrels which are stored in the rickhouse on our farm. We then move these barrels to a neighboring tobacco farm during the tobacco harvest and curing season, July through September. The whiskey barrels are rested in the tobacco barn underneath the tobacco (for approximately 72 hours) during the leaf drying stage of the curing process. The intense heat that the barrels of whiskey encounter while in the tobacco barn accelerates the aging process for the barrel. This accelerated aging and the presence of tobacco creates a truly unique whiskey, like no other.
Our flue-cured process of aging whiskey honors North Carolina’s long rich history of tobacco farming and whiskey production. To some it is unknown, or maybe even forgotten, but the tobacco industry was once the largest source of income for North Carolina. Tobacco growing and manufacturing shaped North Carolina’s development into the economic stronghold that it is today. Revenues from the tobacco industry founded, built, and funded schools, universities, churches, hospitals, and community centers, which, in turn, created jobs and numerous tax dollars. The illegal moonshine trade or bootlegging also had a similar impact on North Carolina’s development, but on a smaller scale. Many may not admit it but bootlegging paid for many college educations, built churches, and supported many election campaigns.
