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!
Part of the Levant Heights range. This is a single-pot still whisky made out of malted barley and wheat. It is triple distilled and aged in white oak.
Brant Tasting Notes: Oak, vanilla, almond, caramelized biscuits, yellow fruits, comfitures, cinnamon roll, and hints of smoke.
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Fresh cut grass, yellow apples, and vanilla bean. The palate has coconut, some oak spice, and tastes like coconut vanilla lotion. Pretty creamy with a biscuity finish.
