Proof66 Notes

Henry Du Yore's bourbon is a what we would consider a "high rye" bourbon where Ransom acknowledges the requisite "50%+ corn" but a greater proportion of rye and also barley (no wheat). The bourbon is aged for 2 years in new American oak and then given an unusual finish in French Oak. 

About the Producer:

Ransom Wine and Spirits is a microdistillery founded in Oregon that bases its spirits on the wine grapes--something that Oregon is becoming increasingly famous for around the world. The company was founded in 1997 by Tad Seestedt with "a fistful of credit cards" and beginning with grappa, brandy, and eau d'vie. To this day the company is committed to organic and "biodynamically produced" fruits. The name "ransom" is a kind of joke to the money necessary to become a small business owner "and the amount of debt owed to banks and other loaning institutions."
