This 86-proof, frontier-style whiskey was created with the inspiration of a time gone by, when this country was headed west by rail on its way to California. The railroad was, and still is, a big part of our Nebraska history. These hard-working frontier people liked their whiskey with an “edge.” This rough and tumble whiskey is meant to be consumed in a chilled shot or mixed with your favorite cola. Or, you might consider yourself a modern-day frontiersman and drink it neat. Patriarch Whiskey is distilled from 100% grain, 18% rye and barreled for about 16 months.
