Bender's Rye Whiskey
An ode to the Robert Louis Stevenson swashbuckler, Treasure Island is one of the Bay’s last hideaways and is home to Bender’s Whiskey Co. It’s also technically a San Francisco neighborhood. We’re sure somebody lives here, but it feels more hospitable to spirits than people.
Batch #5 is a blend of five-year rye and eight to nine-year corn whiskey, a portion of which was finished in Hoffmeister char 1 barrels. For this batch, we also lowered the proof to 90 which keeps the alcohol from overwhelming the palate, while bringing the flavor-forward when enjoyed neat or in a cocktail.
The rye gives the whiskey a sweet and spicy character with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and molasses. The corn rounds out the palate with sweet overtones, extending the finish.
