  • Dear friends of mine gave this bottle to me for christmas, well to the podcast really. 
  • Opened in St. Louis by David Weglarz in 2012 with the belief that life should be filled with passion and intensity.
  • He wants Still 630 to be different, not just some assembly line churning out products. 
  • We are different because we are passionate, bold, and committed.
  • The 630 stands for 630' tall, which is both the height and the width of the St. Louis Arch.
  • To them, the arch is a symbol of the unconquerable spirit of the pioneers that built it.
  • They use as many of the best organic, local ingredients as possible.
  • They believe in pushing conventional boundaries.
  • They  are constantly experimenting with unique distillation processes. 
  • Rather than use the most common distillation process, they use the old-world method of double distillation to capture more flavors.
  • RallyPoint Maple Sunset  begins as their flagship Rye Whiskey and then carefully finished with notes of bourbon and beautiful maple syrup.
  • Mashbill: 90% rye 10% malted barely
  • Other people may add flavoring to achieve the desired result. But that’s not their style. This unique spirit was born the hard way, with time leading to full maturation. The story of this spirit is as much about the barrel itself as the RallyPoint Rye Whiskey that went into it.
  • This whiskey started life being distilled twice, then aging in a charred American Oak barrel from right here in Missouri. At this point, it was well on its way to becoming another standout Single Barrel of our RallyPoint Rye Whiskey. They intentionally select a barrel that has special traits and ideal flavors to compliment the finishing barrel. 
  • This special barrel they use to add delicious flavors and nuance to their RallyPoint changes from batch to batch. However, they use one of their own old bourbon barrels that was used a second time to age actual maple syrup. When it is emptied after this second fill, they  fill it with a hand-picked barrel of mature RallyPoint. Time alone dictates the length of maturation in the finishing barrel. 
  • No age statement on the rye or on the finishing.
