Why Maritime Rye Whiskey is a Top Choice among Spirit Connoisseurs
Updated: Dec 31, 2019
Among various categories of American Whiskeys, such as Tennessee, Bourbon, Corn, Wheat, and Rye whiskey, the latter holds a very important place in the heart of spirit lovers. Known for its unique spicy flavors like pepper, nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon, American Rye Whiskey suits the palate of many whiskey lovers. No wonder, this whiskey - once relegated to obscurity – has resurged in popularity among millions of spirit lovers worldwide.
Additionally, the unique geographical location of Whidbey Island in the Pacific Northwest of the United States combines Coastal Whiskey, Island Whiskey and Maritime Whiskey attributes. Coastal Whiskeys are unusual in America. Island Whiskeys are even more rare, due to the limited number of islands in the States. And only an island nestled between huge mountain ranges (the Cascade and Olympic Mountains – with their powerful, sometimes hourly barometric sways) can produce the specific flavor profile of a Maritime Whiskey, which are similar to Scotland in terms of location and taste.
Because Cadée’s Rye Whiskey is made from over 51% rye and aged in our maritime location and climate, our whiskey is spicy and flavorful. This is due to various factors, like the type and percentage of grains used, the distillation process, the material of cask used for storage, and the duration of aging. Cadée Rye Whiskey has been created using a centuries-old recipe and is aged in charred oak barrels, for a taste that is pronounced and yet very, very smooth. Cadée Rye Whiskey is a true Maritime Whiskey.
