Får Nørth Spirits Musketeer Rye Whiskey
Single Varietal Rye Whiskey
Musketeer Rye, originally bred for Western Canada, is well-suited for our harsh climate. It stands taller in the field, which can lead to lodging but excels in overwintering. When sipped, Musketeer offers distinctive baking spice notes like clove, allspice, and sandalwood, complemented by stone fruit flavors such as apricot and sour cherries.
