REVIEWS

The close ties and continued contact with original moonshining families gives [this rye] a connection to tradition and history that many can only claim to be inspired by.

Of all the stories we've heard, Sextro Rye has one of the best. A sip from this bootlegging grandma 1930s Prohibition-era recipe whisks us back to a simpler time when ingredients were local and whiskey was crafted by hand.

[This] White Rye is a very easy sipping rye that is lightly sweet. I’m not a consumer of White Dog generally. However, this is the very best that I’ve tried.
