INFO: Preservation Distillery out of Bardstown, KY has been putting out some incredible barrels of whiskey. Very Olde St Nick (VOSN) was the very first brand to take quirky, odd lot barrels of whatever they could find that was good. The barrels of rye whiskey for this release were selected before the heat of the summer could get an even larger angles’ share. From that came the name “Summer Rye”, a play off of “Samurai”.
