One of few malted rye whiskeys, the malting process in Rogue’s hand-crafted Oregon Rye Malt softens the spice notes typical of rye whiskeys and makes for a more approachable whiskey that builds in flavor. The barley in the mash bill (52% rye, 48% barley) further rounds out the taste and mouthfeel creating an easy sipping experience. Complex nuttiness is softened by light caramel and a hint of citrus leading to cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper.

RYE IS THE GOSPEL
It is widely believed that whiskey was first distilled for medicinal use by monks and apothecaries in Scotland and Ireland. The distillation of whiskey evolved as it moved from monastic to secular, as it did with the path of migration over hundreds of years.
Early Scotch-Irish settlers in the USA used rye to make whiskey because barley didn’t adapt to the North American climate. These conditions are also true for the dry climate of Australia, where we set out to reimagine this original American spirit using 100% Australian rye.
We use proven techniques of the world’s most famous distilleries, coupled with the attention to detail that only a craftsman can offer, to create rye whiskey with passion, integrity, tradition and belief.
The Gospel founders Ben Bowles and Andrew Fitzgerald are long term disciples of the craft of distilling. Ben, a South Carolina native, learnt how to distil before he was old enough to drive.
Set in the backstreets of Melbourne’s eclectic Brunswick neighbourhood, Ben and Andrew designed and built a distillery big enough to match their dreams, but small enough to remain hands on where it matters. With the help of family and friends, the distillery was built over an 18 month period. It features a six metre high continuous column still, designed and built in-house, as well as a bespoke Copper Pot still.
The Gospel wider team are an experienced group of wine makers and brewers, all of whom have a fierce love for deliciously unpretentious rye whiskey.

Whiskey is religion. Rye is The Gospel.
Willett Straight Rye WhiskeyWillett Straight Rye Whiskey
Willett Straight Rye Whiskey. Willett Family Estate Bottled Straight Rye is aged in hand selected white oak barrels for 3 years after which it is hand bottled at cask strength. Distilled, and aged at Willett, this 3 year old straight rye whiskey is a mingling of two different mash bills. They combined a high rye mash bill (74% rye, 11% corn, 15% malted barley) with a lower rye (51% rye, 34% corn, 15% malted barley). A larger percentage of the high rye mash was used for this 3 year old expression. Non-chill filtered, and bottled at cask strength, this Rye has a surprising amount of depth considering the age. On the nose there is the smell the corn creeping up alongside big beautiful wintergreen, minty rye spice notes. The spices are a bit perfumey, in a good way. On the palate, this young rye explodes with flavour. The sweet corn notes are present, but thankfully the rye wintergreen, mint notes are able to steal the show. This is another great example of an excellent young rye.
