Trinity of Chipotle Whiskey

July 30, 2015

spirits_bottleOn August 1, 2015 Rogue Ales and Spirits will unveil Rogue Chipotle Whiskey, small-batch distilled with Rogue Farms chipotle peppers.

 

Rogue Chipotle Whiskey begins at the Rogue farm in Independence, Oregon, where two acres of jalapeños grow close to the banks of the Willamette River. The jalapeños are allowed to ripen until they are bright red, the additional time ripening on the vine means more capsaicin in the pepper, which makes for a spicier pepper. Once harvested by hand, the jalapeños are driven 77 miles to the Rogue Brewery in Newport, Oregon, where they are dried and slowly smoked over cherry and alder woods. The smoky chipotles are then used by Brewmaster John Maier to brew the Rogue Chipotle Whiskey wash.

 

Once the brewing is complete, the chipotle wash is driven across the parking lot to the Rogue Distillery where more freshly smoked chipotles are added during the distillation process. After distillation, the Chipotle Whiskey is aged in Oregon Oak barrels along with one final addition of chipotles. Rogue Chipotle Whiskey uses chipotles three ways: brewed, distilled, and barrel-aged with Rogue Farms chipotle peppers for three times the flavor and spice.

 

Rogue Chipotle Whiskey will be available at Rogue meeting halls & select retailers throughout the United States. For more information, click here.
