The Black Wax
Distilled from New York Wheat (100% wheat mash bill), this whiskey is produced the same way as the wheat spirit for gin. That means the grain is distilled in manner top retain the character of the wheat. That flavor is then matched with the contribution of the barrel as it matures in new American Oak barrels.
The White Wax
Distilled from local rye and corn (85% rye & 15% corn mash bill) the other whiskey is produced very much like the black wax whiskey, except we ferment a mash of rye and corn, rather than wheat. This grain combination benefits from some additional time in oak, so it tends to be a little older than the black wax.
“Breuckelen Distilling began crafting gin and whiskey during the summer of 2010. We produce each of our spirits entirely from scratch in Brooklyn, New York.
We mill, mash, ferment, distill, mature, fill, and label each and every bottle of spirits that bears our name.
Our promise is to start with unprocessed ingredients, use only New York grown grains, and only sell what we make. We won’t buy bulk distilled spirits and sell them as our own. From time to time that means we may be out of a particular product and we ask for your understanding. Each item we craft takes time and patience.” Per Breuckelen Distilling
