Riachi Winery & Distillery is one of Lebanon’s oldest, continuously operational wineries and distilleries. Established by Moses Riachi in 1839, it has since been passed down 8 generations to become Lebanon’s first whisky distillery, while also crafting a wide portfolio of small-batch wines and spirits. They utilize alternative grains and the most unique difference comes in the Athyr Single Cask range where they use Lebanese Oak (Quercus Libani) for maturation. Riachi remains 100% family owned and operated. We are thrilled to be some of the first shops in the USA to carry Riachi whisky!
Batch No. 1| This is part of the Levant Heights Series “Mount Hermon”. A single malt whisky made from heavily roasted imperial dark malted barley which is typically used for porters and stout beers. It is double distilled and matured in virgin white oak.
Brand Tasting Notes: Notes of vanilla, condensed milk, maple syrup & molasses complemented with waves of chocolate, toffee, and roasted espresso coffee beans.
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Freshly roasted coffee beans, slightly burnt banana nut bread with butter on it, and cookie dough. The palate is rich with dark chocolate and mocha. There are hints of peanut butter and peanuts in here too. A nice thick palate for the ABV. This is quite the desert whisky!
