In the craft whiskey world, I'm looking for three things. A dedication to the grains/farm, good product design, and (most importantly) great taste. It can sometimes be difficult to find new distillers that score high in all three categories. That's why when I heard about Frey Ranch's single estate bourbon I was a little skeptical. Luckily, it came highly recommended from a well-respected master distiller. Then I tasted it for myself and it was fantastic. The winter wheat adds a creaminess to the mouthfeel. There's enough pepper and oak to round it out nicely.

Grown, Distilled, Matured, and Bottled on the Frey Ranch
My journey starts with the love of growing grains in a sustainable way here on the ranch – over 2,000 acres in the Sierra Nevada Watershed. Every time I step onto the land I can feel the generations before me. I’ve tilled the soil, planted the seed, and grown the grains specifically for making a bourbon unlike any other – born from 165 years of our family farming tradition every single aspect of this whiskey was crafted on Frey Ranch.
