Touch of Spice
Making the best rye spirit, to compete with the Cognac's and Scotch's in today's market; was not an easy task. But we were up for it. Enter Iowa Legendary Rye's Purple Label Rye Spirit. We have had the very best in spirits reviews and taste-test critics review our purple label and we are proud to say there is no contender to the other brands in today's marketplace. We always get the same answer from our critics "How did you do this?" Try a bottle today for that special occasion and add your review and your thoughts below; we would love to know them.
Imagine living in the 1920s when alcohol was prohibited. Life was pretty boring. There were no parties that could have alcohol, and if you had alcohol and got caught, you spent a few days in the Gray bar hotel. (Jail)
That didn't stop one township in Iowa from enjoying the fruits of the Rye. Everything had to be on the down-low so no one got caught serving any of the Bootleg Whiskey that was known at those "boring" parties.
That was a rough time in our History. The Depression was in full swing, the economy was in shambles and the only way to make ends meet was to bootleg. This particular recipe was made by a bootlegging grandma; 90 years ago.
Fast forward to today, we still make our Small Batch Rye Spirits the same way Grandma Lorine Sextro used to make it. From the 26 gallon Pot Stills to the 15 Gallon Barrels of American White Oak that our Rye is aged in, we do it just right.
What price would you assign to a one of a kind life-changing experience? We say only $199 for Purple Patriot Label Rye. Here is why; Purple Patriot Label is the only handcrafted, 100% sweet rye, mashed and distilled on-site masterpiece being made in the world today. It is made using our historically accurate world-famous Prohibition Era 1931 recipe. But that is not enough.
We take our 93 pt rated white rye that is already saturated with the caramel and vanilla, and put it in a 15 gallon American Oak cask for up to 18 months. After the first 18-month maturation process has been completed we have our international multi-gold/double gold award-winning black label ready to be sold. Although by international spirits competition judges' standards that is perfection, we say not yet. Our fifth-generation master distiller selects the exceptional barrels of black and sends them back into our proprietary pot/reflux stills that carve out the finest features of our black label while leaving behind that flavor for the second new 15-gallon barrel to double down on our search for the best rye on the planet.
Here is where the real magic happens, the double-distilled spirit digs deep into the second barrel for up to 18 months and what comes out is the experience you will never have if you have not tried Purple Patriot Rye. The finished product is dark and thick like your finest coffee and shiny in color like a newly minted penny. Hot yet smooth, thick caramel overtones, warm and smokey, with a rounded mouthful for a balance of weighted flavors that continues to build on your pallet for hours after you have had your first taste. Bottle at 121.2 proof. This is not just your top-shelf bottle. This is an “oil of conversation” spirit that can spurn excellent philosophical engagements, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and laughter on their lips, and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes. This is the Iowa Legendary Rye Purple Label; the continuation of “How Rye was Born”. This has already been said to be the best high proof spirit on the market. The Food and Beverage Magazine Proof awards agreed with a Gold Medal.
A moment of this on your lips will have you reminiscing about days past, the “good times” while creating moments with friends, family, or even if you simply enjoy it alone.
Our fan's biggest debate is; do you share it with friends and family or keep this rare creation to yourself.
