The Splinter Group Whip Saw Rye Whiskey
Extraordinary deep amber color. Aromas of a beautiful vanilla crème brulée, spiced candied fruit-cake, bergamot, banana, earth, wood-smoke with a hint of black truffle. Decadent, complex flavors of citrus, caramel and butterscotch, layered baking spices with a touch of ginger with a silky-smooth lingering spice finish. Delicious in a cocktail. Whip Saw Rye needs nothing.
A casual conversation between the Wilkinson family and renowned winemaker, Dave Phinney sparked an idea to mellow whiskey in seasoned wine barrels. Thus, the beginnings of The Splinter Group.
Being both intensely curious and insanely competitive (as winemakers tend to be), we set out to make the greatest whiskey - uniquely made by people who make great wine.
The rest is history.
Today, the Splinter Group Spirits is a partnership between Vintage Wine Estates, The Wilkinson Family and winemaker Bob Cabral. We are dedicated to crafting the best spirits around
