Rebellious Rye Whiskey is Jake Pittman’s original recipe from when he first began his career as a distiller. After experimenting with many variations, Jake realized he had struck gold with the inaugural batch. This whiskey has the perfect blend of ingredients, yet it is truly defined by its aging process. Twisted Manzanita recoups red wine barrels by disassembling, cleaning, and charring them with a number three burn. This process releases caramelized red wine into the alcohol, which provides the oaky flavor to the delicious Rebellious Rye.
