Frey Ranch Distillery today announced the release of a new permanent expression in its American whiskey portfolio: Frey Ranch Farm Strength Uncut Bourbon.
Bottled at cask strength, this non-chill filtered, small batch whiskey is produced using grains grown, harvested, milled, distilled on the Frey Ranch farm year-round.
At 124.3 proof and aged for an average of five years, Frey Ranch Farm Strength Uncut Bourbon uses the same mash bill as the flagship four grain Straight Bourbon Whiskey: 66.6% Dent Corn, 10% Winter Wheat, 11.4% Winter Rye and 12% Two Row Barley.
As a cask strength bourbon, the tasting experience differs from the flagship 90-proof experience with robust notes of caramelized brulé and hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, the company reports. On the palate, the whiskey opens with birthday cake frosting and glazed butter cake, as well as cloves, orange creamsicle and dried stone fruit. The finish has hints of smoke and black cherry.
“Every time we blend a batch of our flagship Frey Ranch Four Grain Straight Bourbon, we taste it at cask strength before we proof it down,” says Co-Founder and Whiskey Farmer Colby Frey. “That uncut liquid is always a big hit with our distillery team. We’re excited to now offer the ‘Farm Strength’ version of the signature whiskey that put Frey Ranch on the map with our grain-forward approach. For the best tasting experience, we recommend a side-by-side comparison of our signature 90-proof against this new uncut version.”
Available in California, Nevada, at the Frey Ranch Tasting Room and online at freyranch.com, Frey Ranch Farm Strength Uncut Bourbon has a suggested retail price of $79.99 for a 750-ml. bottle.
In 2023, Frey Ranch will expand its footprint with availability in Arizona, Ohio and Georgia.
