Tenth Ward produces three types of whiskey: two ryes (White Caraway Rye Spirit and 120-proof White Rye) and one corn, all unaged. Applejack is its first and only barrel-aged product. Monica considers the Caraway Rye to be Tenth Ward’s signature product. It’s meant to be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail. Grab a bottle of the 120-proof white rye and age it at home yourself with one of the pre-made aging kits, complete with your choice of wood and detailed instructions. The corn whiskey has a smoky scotch-like quality. It’s created using traditional methods with corn from an Angus beef farm and malt house in West Virginia. In the late fall and winter, Cerise Liqueur, a bright cherry-flavored spirit, was available for sale. And soon, look for Honeyjack to be released. Kyle has been barrel-aging mead from Orchid Cellar Meadery in Middletown since early fall; it promises to be a unique addition to the distillery’s shelves. 39
