Tenmile Distillery is located in Wassaic, New York, and focused on the belief that a small, independent distillery with the right team can return to traditional methods of whisky-making and produce a superior spirit. Focusing on American Single Malt, although also making gin and vodka, they went right to the source of what single malt means to them: Scotland. Their first hire was Shane Fraser who previously distilled for Oban, Glenfarclas, and was distillery manager at Wolfburn in northern Scotland.
Their highly anticipated first edition single malt release came out in Spring 2023. It was barreled in 2020 and is called “Little Rest” because of a steep hill near the distillery that in days past required an extra horse to pull a full cart uphill. A hamlet grew at the top of the hill so horses and drivers could have “a little rest.” Their hope is that you will take a moment to enjoy the whisky and take a little rest with your friends and family.
This is their First Edition release! We have the following bottle numbers are will do our best to accommodate number preferences. This release is a marriage of ex-bourbon casks, Oloroso Sherry, and red wine.
580-589 | 750-755 | 1035, 1036, 1038, 1039
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Creamy peanuts, chocolate chip cookie dough, and mocha. The palate is brighter with more apples, caramel, and chocolate.
