ERNEST SCARANO DISTILLERY 10 YEAR
A Grand Overture
"I want to create a whiskey that represents the best qualities of a traditional rye whiskey, while enhancing it for the senses, and the modern-day connoisseur."
The Pinnacle of Rye Whiskey
In 2010 Ernest Scarano set out on a journey, to create the finest whiskey he could distill. He envisioned a whiskey that was unlike any other, but most importantly distilled in a traditional way.
After two years of trial and adjustment, the foundation for his vision of the finest rye whiskey had been set, and he was ready to distill his masterpiece.
Over the course of a 12 hour distillation period using the same traditional copper pot still that is still used today, Ernest Scarano was able to achieve the exact distillate that he was looking for.
