Food & Drink

Rogue Ales & Spirits unveiled a new addition to its Dead Guy portfolio this week, Dead Guy Whiskey Wine Cask Finished. Additionally, it renamed its Rolling Thunder Stouted Whiskey to Dead Guy Whiskey Stout Cask Finished and unveiled a new custom bottle for the whole Dead Guy lineup.

Rogue first released Dead Guy Whiskey in 2006, and the release quickly became the brand’s most popular whiskey. Dead Guy Whiskey is pot distilled from 100% malted barley at Rogue’s distillery on the Oregon Coast and is “ocean aged” near ocean air, something that Rogue sats imparts the smooth, rich taste Dead Guy is known for.

“As a leading producer of American Single Malt in the country, it is a wonderful time to add new expressions and double down on this emerging category that we’ve been working to perfect for almost two decades,” Steven Garrett, VP of Business Development for Rogue Ales & Spirits said in a prepared statement.

“The Stout Cask Finished is so uniquely Rogue, utilizing barrels we make by hand at our onsite cooperage that previously aged a stout beer that we brewed at our brewery, he says. “This whiskey has won best craft distilled whiskey at the highly acclaimed San Francisco World Spirits competition two of the last four years and is a real testament to everything we do at Rogue, from distilling to coopering to brewing.”

As for that new wine cask expression, wine barrels were sourced from King Estate Winery in Eugene, Oregon. The distillery says that bold fruit notes are accentuated by a rush of dark plum, tobacco and peppercorn to create a one-of-a-kind whiskey.
