While our Diamond State Straight Rye Whiskey pays homage to our history, our 5th Anniversary Straight Rye Whiskey toasts our innovated nature. We partnered with Blue Earl brewing Company right here in Smyrna, Delaware to concoct a whiskey and beer synergy for each of our businesses’ 5th anniversaries.  To craft this tasty whiskey, we dumped casks containing two-year-old Diamond State Rye Whiskey, and then took the barrels 5 minutes up the road to Blue Earl Brewing. At the brewery, the barrels spent 4 months holding a Russian Imperial Stout, cocoa nibs and vanilla beans. They were then returned to our distillery to be filled again with their original contents. Diamond State 5th Anniversary Straight Rye Whiskey was bottled after 3.5 months of conditioning. No chill filtering and bottled at 88 proof, this whiskey is an intriguing sipper and makes an awesome chocolate manhattan.
