    George Dickel x Leopold Bros Collaboration Blend Rye

    George Dickel x Leopold Bros Collaboration Blend Rye

    In this week's After Hours, we sip on George Dickel x Leopold Bros Collaboration Blend Rye. Join us!

    All About George Dickel x Leopold Bros Collaboration Blend Rye:

    George Dickel has teamed up with Leopold Bros to produce an innovative rye whisky offering. The release blends George Dickel’s column still rye produced at Cascade Hallow Distillery with Leopold Bros’ Three Chamber Rye to recreate a historic style. This union between column distilled rye and Three Chamber distilled rye turns back the hands of time, returning to an era that saw heavy-bodied rye whisky served at bars and saloons throughout America. The Cascade Hollow component of this blend is a never-before-released traditional column still rye.

    All About Seagrass Rye:

    Seagrass highlights the grassy oceanside notes we love in rye and the opulence and spice of finishing barrels. It is a blend of American and Canadian rye whiskeys, with each ingredient meticulously sourced and finished separately in Martinique Rhum, Madeira & apricot brandy barrels.

    BCS is proud to announce a collaboration with The Ocean Foundation. Special hangtags will be placed on select bottles of Barrell Seagrass. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these bottles will be donated to The Ocean Foundation to contribute to the conservation and restoration of seagrass.
