Distilled and bottled in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Mister Katz’s Rock & Rye is an original recipe developed by New York Distillery Company’s Co-Founder and spirits expert Allen Katz. Made popular in the late 1800’s, early 1900’s, this “age of old” spirit begins with a youthful rye then tempered with rock candy sugar, dried cherries, cinnamon and orange peel- lending itself as a great addition to cocktails or enjoyed solely on its own.

Following in the great tradition of sherry cask-aged Knappogue Castle 1951 – the oldest and rarest known Irish whiskey – single malt Irish whiskeys of Knappogue Castle are distilled three times in traditional copper pot stills and then placed in bourbon casks and aged. Knappogue Twin Wood bottlings are so named because whiskeys spend time in two types of wood. The Twin Wood is aged for 14 years in bourbon barrels, resulting in a spirit that is deep, complex, and very smooth, with a fruity nose and dusty dark chocolate and woody vanilla notes.
For the Whiskey-Drinking Dad: Sometimes a exceptional glass of whiskey on ice does the trick- no recipe necessary. The Twin Wood 16 year ($100) will sure leave an lasting impression as a gift for dad.
