1512 Barbershop? Where Did This Come From?

Just met with a representative for 1512 Spirits today, a little outfit that has been making illegal moonshine for three generations.  From what I've heard (from them and from others) the guy behind this project is a distillation genius.  Can't wait to meet him.  I just pre-ordered four cases of their newest white rye batch coming out in a few weeks.  Word is they may have some older stuff hiding away as well.  Mike Barber of our SF store actually met him at his barber shop a few years back and traded him some wine for booze.  This guy still works as a barber five days a week in SF and distills at night in Sonoma County.  In any case, Mike said the spirits are the real deal.  We'll have 48 bottles of this 100% white rye in a few weeks.  It's very, very good.  I hope it's an indication of what is to come.  I plan on doing plenty o' business with 1512.

Hi David,
Sounds like a fun thing to taste, especially since I've never tasted a white rye. Is it going to taste similar to other white whiskies on the market or will the high rye content make it significantly different? Maybe more spicy?

April 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChris F

Chris - it really tastes like pure rye without the richness. If you've ever smelled a pure rye whiskey that was still young enough to where the aging did not overpower the grain, then it's quite beautiful. This has that.

I've had it, I love it. I can not wait for the next release.
