Try Bethlehem Rye Whiskey at Trestle Inn

social still rye 400Tonight, The Trestle Inn’s Spirit of Wednesday features a new rye whiskey from Bethlehem’s Social Still. The not-available in stores rye is pouring tonight via complimentary tastings and $10 for a neat pour.

Social Still Rye Whiskey is 70% rye and 30% malted barley and aged for 192 days. The rye is described as having a subtle fruity aroma, and a pronounced rye flavor with a long spicy finish.

Social Still, just one of the most recent Pennsylvania distillers to hit the market focuses on obtaining Pennsylvania corn, wheat, rye, barley and other grains from family farms for their organic practices. The grains are then milled, cooked and fermented in their Bethlehem distillery. Social Still has a bar and restaurant on site if you find yourself in Bethlehem.
