Private Stock Rye Whiskey – Our Private Stock is the same recipe used in our twelve-year rye. It’s no secret that this whiskey is at 95% rye and 5% barley and is aged to perfection in new American white oak charred barrels. The Private Stock is only ready when our founder says it is ready to achieve the best carmel, vanilla and pepper/spice note finish. Our 4 year Rye Whiskey is aged in our once-used bourbon barrels.
Patriarch Blackberry Whiskey – Created from our Patriarch Whiskey recipe, this spirit was made in 2017 as a one-time production for an ice fishing tournament in South Dakota. Jeff wanted to create something to commemorate the event. Research found that ice fishermen liked to consume blackberry brandy while on the ice. Since brandy is made from wine and we don’t produce wine, it was decided to create a blackberry whiskey. Having some extra on hand after supplying South Dakota, we introduced it at the distillery. We were shocked by the interest it created. The first tone you pick up is the subtleness of blackberries followed by the warm finish feeling of the whiskey. It is proofed to 80 instead of the traditional 86 proof of the Patriarch Whiskey. Consumed over ice with a splash of ginger ale is a very popular way to enjoy it. Time will tell if we will offer this as an everyday spirit or continue to offer it only when the snow flies.
12 Year RYE Whiskey – Is the “old man” of the Soldier Valley Spirit family. This double barrel aged high rye recipe was created for that very special occasion. Toasting a career promotion, sipping with your groomsmen on your wedding day, or even saluting that special veteran for their service to our great nation. We encourage sipping this 92 proof spirit neat or over a couple of ice cubes as you enjoy every sip.
Patriarch Whiskey – This whiskey was created during a bittersweet period of our founder’s distilling time. Jeff recalls selling many name brand items over the years that he spent in the spirit wholesale business. “Selling these every day consumed brands were so easy that anyone could sell them”, he says. He also remembers brands that were new or brands he recalls as needing lots of “nurturing”. A particular spiced whiskey was one that when it was launched as new, no one would buy or even consider trying it. This went on for several years. Fast forward to 2015. After many trips to multiple liquor stores, Jeff recalls saying, “You can’t swing a dead cat in here without hitting a thirty case display” of this particular whiskey. This led him to create our 86 proof Patriarch Whiskey. This frontier-style whiskey was created with the inspiration of a time period gone by, when this country was headed west by rail on its way to California. The railroad was and is a big part of our Nebraska history. These hard-working frontier people liked their whiskey with an “edge”! This rough and tumble whiskey is meant to be consumed in a chilled shot or mixed with your favorite cola, or you might consider yourself a modern day frontier person and drink it neat. Patriarch Whiskey is distilled from 100% grain, 18% Rye and barreled for about 16 months.
This amazing young whiskey is dedicated to the men and women of our Armed Forces, both past and present , who have always answered the call to serve. They leave their civilian lives behind to stand up and fight for our freedom as well as others who live in tyranny.
10 Year Old Soldier Valley Rye Whiskey – Patriarch Distillers launched their long-anticipated 10 Year Old Soldier Valley “William H Nuckolls Signature Rye Whiskey” in November 2015. This incredibly smooth 95% rye whiskey was aged to perfection for 10 years in an American White Oak barrel. It’s pepper and other spice characteristics blend well with subtle hints of vanilla to create a whiskey sipping experience you will not soon forget. This upscale sipping whiskey is named for our founder’s grandfather, William H Nuckolls, who bravely served in the South Pacific during WWII. When he returned to his family, he continued to serve his country by working for the US Postal Service for many years. This whiskey is a tribute to him and all the others like him that have served our country both here and abroad.
Our Soldier Valley William H Nuckolls Signature Rye was a Double Gold Winner at the San Francisco International Spirit Competition.
