Thank you to Distiller Magazine and David Furer for visiting Stoll & Wolfe last September for Dick Stoll’s return to distilling Rosen Rye Whiskey in Pennsylvania. The project, made possible by Laura Fields Seed Spark Campaign and Greg Roth with Penn State’s Agriculture Department is the result of years of their dedication and hard work.
The Return of Rosen Rye
“Until the 1970s, Rosen was one of the dominant types of rye grown in Pennsylvania, owing in no small part to having been marketed by (Pennsylvania) Michter’s as a preferred distilling grain since the 1950s. It’s taken four years of growing Fields’ Keystone Rosen rye to yield her enough for a distillation run using over 500 pounds of rye for a 1,000-pound mash that included corn and barley, producing about 50 gallons of spirit.”
