Chad & Sara from 'It's Bourbon Night' recently shared a video entitled "5 ways to save whiskey you hate' I nominated Old Potrero 18th Century as a member of the Island of Misfit Whiskies. Don't get me wrong. I knew going into the purchase that it was a second rate whiskey....thanks to proof66.com It's just that Liquor Barn offered such a GREAT DEAL on this that I could not pass it up. I am totally at fault for buying this. Liquor Barn provided exceptional product selection, reasonable (if not exceptional) prices, SUPERB packaging, speedy response to my order. I will buy again from Liquor Barn!!

Old Potrero 18th Century Rye Whiskey 750ML
This release was distilled in a small copper pot still at the Anchor distillery on San Francisco's Potrero Hill, from a mash of 100% rye malt. Rye was the grain of choice for America's first distillers, and using a mash of 100% rye malt produces a uniquely American whiskey.
Old Potrero is a small batch malted rye whiskey produced with a recipe that parallels whiskey made during the late 1700s. George Washington was a large distiller of spirits during this period. This does not have the body of flavor found in more modern whiskies primarily due to the way it is aged. There is no char. The aging is done in "toasted" oak barrels. It is less sweet than bourbon due to the fact it is all rye with no corn. The best part is Liquor Barn. I was assigned to Ft Knox a few years ago & am very familiar with their stores. They are the best of the best. When you want to try something you cant buy locally, Liquor Barn is the best place to go.
This is made in San Francisco through Anchor Brewing company. However, it is not largely distributed, only made in very small batches, and thus even though I live in San Francisco, I had to go all the way to Illinois to purchase it. Glad Liquor Barn had it!
