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.”
Visit Stoll and Wolfe on November 16th at the 2019 West Overton Whiskey Smash. We’ll be on hand pouring our award winning whiskeys and talking Pennsylvania Whiskey past, present and future.
We’ll also be donating 1 of 50 bottles released of Stoll & Wolfe Un Aged Rosen Rye. Signed by Master Distiller Dick Stoll, this bottling is the first Rosen Rye sold in Pennsylvania in nearly 50yrs.

We’ll be on hand to pour our award winning Bourbon & Rye Whiskeys. Legendary Master Pennsylvania Distiller Dick Stoll will be there to talk PA Whiskey Past, Present and Future.
“Mr. Stoll is the last member of a near extinguished legacy of distillers pre-dating the country itself; representing generations of dedication, commitment and skill hand crafting Pennsylvania Whiskey. Mr. Stoll began his distilling career in 1955 as a laborer and worked his way up to his role as master distiller of Pennsylvania’s Michter’s Distillery. Trained by C Everett Beam in both the Beam Family and Historical Pennsylvania Style, Dick served as both Master Distiller and unofficial steward of Pennsylvania-made whiskey. He is also, notably, the distiller behind the famed and highly collectible A.H. Hirsch Bourbon.”
“The American Whiskey Convention is an annual event, hosted by the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation, where you’ll interact with whiskey experts, distillers, maltsters and farmers. Each year, we create an event that celebrates American-made products and the men and women that craft them. We aim to educate and entertain our guests with exciting event venues, interactive displays, expert whiskey vendors, custom catering, and educational forums. Our guests participate in a grand tasting event, enjoy tailored items, accessories, straight-edge shaves, handmade luxury goods, jewelry and more. All of this takes place within the city of Philadelphia, a city rich with American whiskey history. We have returned whiskey to the state of Pennsylvania where American rye whiskey was born.” Follow links for more on the American Whiskey Convention and the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation.
