Taconic Distillery, established in 2013, is a purveyor of fine craft spirits located in the Hudson Valley of New York. They handcraft award-winning bourbon and rye whiskies in small batches using the finest ingredients, including grains grown in New York and natural spring water from their farm. Inspired by hunting and fishing, Taconic embraces a passion for the outdoors and that passion is imprinted on all of their spirits. To preserve the complete flavor of their whiskey, Taconic does not chill filter. Whiskey is distilled at below 160 proof to retain more of the flavor from the grains it was made from. Those flavors are transferred through the distilling process as fatty molecules (flavor oils). Some distillers will sacrifice a certain amount of flavor for clarity at this point, and chill filter their whiskies to remove some of these fatty molecules. They get a clear whiskey, but remove some of the flavor. Taconic does not chill filter, so sometimes the whiskey may show some “cloudiness”. This does not mean the whiskey is flawed. On the contrary, it is proof they have imparted as much flavor to the whiskey as possible.
Taconic’s Straight Bourbon Whiskey is bottled at barrel strength 115 proof. Taconic adds a touch of artisanal water to give the bourbon healthy dose of butteriness.
