Appalachian Grist is a blend of three whiskey types (rye malt, wheat malt, bourbon), crafted entirely from grain grown in the Appalachian Valley region. Made with malts produced by our friends at Riverbend Malt House (Asheville, NC), each mash bill contains between 45-85% malted grains - all lightly kilned to retain the intrinsic characteristics of the grain. The result is a blend that showcases characteristics from each whiskey style, and the collective impacts of terroir over each part of the process - grain-to-glass.
