ALLEY 6 RYE WHISKEY
86 PROOF (43% ABV)
Our Rye Whiskey is a true small-batch whiskey twice distilled in direct-fire, traditional copper alembic pot stills from a rye malt mash composed of 78% rye and 22% aromatic malted barley from Heidelberg Germany. Each batch is aged for a minimum of nine months in small, heavy charred, new American White Oak barrels.
This young, energetic spirit has a complex flavor paired with remarkable smoothness and character. It boasts flavors of honey and oak and imparts hints of vanilla, spice of rye, and a nice subtle caramel note on the palate.
Common way to enjoy is neat or with a drop of water, also makes for a killer Old Fashioned or Manhattan.

ALLEY 6 HARVEST GIN
BATCH NO. 2 | 80 PROOF (40% ABV)
Our Harvest Gin is first distilled in direct-fire, traditional copper alembic pot stills in order to keep the wonderful aromas of the Viognier. Then, it is distilled one final time in a column still so that we can infuse the botanicals and offer you this unique aromatic gin.
This Gin isn’t your typical gin. It’s a seasonal, limited release aromatic grape-based gin we make once a year at harvest time. The floral Viognier white wine pomace from local wineries is fermented and pressed at our distillery. We then distill it using traditional techniques. Once we have the base spirit, it’s finished with a combination of unique botanicals vapor-infused in a botanicals basket. We combine locally harvested California bay laurel and wild fennel along with juniper berries and an array of delicious botanicals. The result is a floral and complex spirit crafted to entice the most discerning palates.

ALLEY 6 86'd CANDY CAP BITTERS
86 PROOF (43% ABV)
Alley 6 86’d Candy Cap Bitters is composed of aromatic Candy Cap mushrooms foraged from the Sonoma Coast and a melody of baking spices that are extracted with our base rye spirit and finished in small oak barrels.
Our head distiller and co-founder, Jason Jorgensen, was 86’d from the bar industry due to residual prohibition laws in the state of California. Our line of 86’d Bitters is his ode to the industry.
