Smooth Ambler Spirits Debuts Founder’s Series Cask Strength Rye Recipe

Known for pioneering and popularizing transparency in whiskey sourcing and blending, Smooth Ambler Spirits has built a dedicated and cult-like following of national whiskey drinkers over the years through its portfolio of American Whiskey offerings. With a fiery desire and pioneering spirit to continue producing exceptional American whiskies, Smooth Ambler is excited to launch its Founder’s Series – the distillery’s 100% homemade whiskey – with the inaugural expression released being a Cask Strength Rye Recipe. smooth ambler

At this time, only six batches of Smooth Ambler Founder’s Series Cask Strength Rye Recipe will be produced per year, with less than 400 total cases of product available nationwide. Whiskey drinkers will want to get their hands on a bottle as soon as it hits shelves November 2021.

Smooth Ambler Spirits believes that whether a whiskey is sourced (or as we affectionally call it “scouted”), homemade, or blended in a contradictory mingling between the two—each whiskey should be shepherded with care and dedication at every stage of the production process. This seriously good Rye, made by (mostly) serious people (like founder John Little and the Smooth Ambler Spirits distilling and blending team), is non-chill filtered and comprised of 88% Rye and 12% malted barley. It delivers notes of toasted oak, toffee, sweet black tea, and subtle herb spice.

For Smooth Ambler’s founder, John Little, this release quite literally, hits home. “We’re proud about how we paved a more open and transparent conversation around scouting and blending while also producing great whiskeys” says John Little, Founder of Smooth Ambler Spirits. “The milder West Virginia climate and infusion cooking method the Founder’s Series Cask Strength Rye Recipe makes for a unique whiskey. We couldn’t be more excited to finally showcase what we like to call our ‘homemade juice.’ This Rye is one you’ll be proud to share with friends and family.”

Smooth Ambler Cask Strength Rye Recipe will be available at select liquor stores throughout CA, FL, GA, IL, MD, MI, NC, NY, OH, PA, SC, TX, for a total of $54.99 per bottle. You can expect other expressions to join the Founder’s Series family in the near future.
