OUR FOUNDING BOTTLES

EST. 2008

WHEAT

With a 100% wheat mash bill, our Wheat Whiskey is the softest of our three expressions and unique to any other American style whiskey on the market. Our wheat produces a buttery, savory, and smooth spirit that proves to be an excellent introductory whiskey.

TASTING NOTES:

NOSE: Port, hint of oak, honey, and caramel notes

 

PALATE: Velvet texture, sweet but not cloying (given the lack of corn), perfumed notes of rose petals

FINISH: Orange peels, herbaceous, and honeyed with a long lasting mouth feel

BOURBON

Our Bourbon is a one of a kind, 100% corn mash bill. It's the most traditional of our house expressions, boasting a beautiful midpoint balance of sweetness that lies somewhere between the soft signature of the Wheat and the sharp spice of the Rye.

TASTING NOTES:

NOSE: Vanilla, chalk, corn, and toast

PALATE: Char, pencil shavings, coffee, and pecan with a medium to full body

FINISH: Tobacco leaf transitioning into a lingering sweet cherry finish

RYE

In the crowded world of "High Ryes" on the market,we are proud to offer the highest with a 100% rye mash bill. Sourced from just outside Richmond's city limits, our rye provides an intense, sharply spiced profile that is not too sweet.

TASTING NOTES:

NOSE: Honey and crème brulee, rye spice and yeast,some orange peel/citrus tones

LIMITED-TIME OFFERINGS

& COLLABORATIONS

MASH-UP SERIES

ARDENT DISTILLED IPA:

We worked with local brewery, Ardent Craft Ales to form our first ever collaboration whiskey. We distilled the grain from an Ardent IPA and finished it in our bourbon barrels. We were met with a flavor profile that was citrusy, floral, hoppy and completely unique.

HARDYWOOD GINGERBREAD STOUT:

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery let us experiment with their wildly popular Gingerbread Stout. We took the stout and aged it with the same technique we use for our bourbon. The result was unlike any other spirit available. People called it "Christmas in a glass" with subtle hints of the base beer, locally produced ginger, clove and honey.

BOUTIQUE-Y RESERVOIR

The Boutique-y Whisky Company, a UK bottler offering whiskies from world-renowned distilleries, selected Reservoir to be part of their limited bottle creations. Each Boutique-y bottle of our four unique expressions displays a 'graphic novel' style label, which is almost as wickedly fun to look at as enjoying what's inside.
