Proof66 Notes

A.D. Laws Secale Rye Whiskey is bottled at cask strength, meaning its uncut by water and bottled at the startling proof of 130+ (bottles will vary by cask). It is aged for at least 3 years in charred oak barrels made in Missouri. Many would regard it as a Pennsylvania style rye in that it is 95% rye grain with 5% barley (the "Maryland style" softening the proportion of rye quite a bit). Between the bottling proof and the high rye content, they openly announce this whiskey is "not for beginners" but believe it represents the "cream" of their whiskey.

Gargoyle Enterprises is the company formed behind the Laws Whiskey House named for founder Al Laws (they prefer the term "whiskey house" because they felt "distillery" didn't quite capture their intent). It is located in Denver, Colorado and considers itself a "grain to glass" distillery in that they perform and control aspects of production from grinding grain, to fermenting, to distilling, to bottling (commonly, distilleries will outsource one or more of those processes). They use traditional 53-gallon barrels and name the farms from which they purchase their grain. They believe the altitude and climate of Colorado naturally improves and accelerates the aging process.
