We take a lot of pride in our whiskies.  McKenzie Whiskeys are made from only the best ingredients, and are distilled using old-time techniques. Handmade and un-chillfiltered, these fine spirits have rich, complex flavors and smooth, colorful finishes. Superb straight-up or on the rocks, but they also stand up well in a variety of cocktails.

We also offer a selection of unaged whiskies. These clear, grain based spirits are often better suited to mixing than their aged, sipping-whiskey counterparts.

Interested in aging your own batch of whiskey at home? We also offer whiskey aging kits at our distillery store.  The kit includes 2 bottles of our McKenzie Rye Whitedog and a 2-liter barrel with stand.

Tasting Notes

unaged, white whiskeys

Whiskey_whiteWhite Pike Whiskey

White Pike Whiskey is a refined spirit made from a signature blend of locally grown corn, spelt and malted wheat. Distilled with precision and aged 18 minutes. White Pike is rich through the middle and finishes smooth, still young enough to mix in ways brown whiskeys won’t.
750 ml   |  80 proof   |  $34.00



Whiskey_thunderGlen Thunder 

Glen Thunder is a fine-tuned, true American corn whiskey, made to honor one of America’s greatest raceways, Watkins Glen. The mellow corn flavors give it the feel of a smooth ride, but don’t be fooled, because it’s still got plenty of horsepower. The aroma of this whiskey is reminiscent of pulling back the husk from an ear of sweet summer corn. 
375/750 ml   |   90 proof   |  $12.00/$22.00



cask aged whiskeys

McKenzie Pure Pot Still Whiskey

McKenzie Pure Pot Still Whiskey  is distilled from a mash of  locally-grown unmalted barley and malted barley. The whiskey is aged in our used bourbon and rye barrels.
750 ml   |  80 proof   |  $42.00



Whiskey_bourbonMcKenzie Bourbon Whiskey

McKenzie Bourbon Whiskey is a very rich bourbon with just enough rye spice to complement the subtle sweetness. A local variety of corn makes 70% of the mash bill. 
750 ml   |  91 proof   |  $42.00


whiskey_ryeMcKenzie Rye Whiskey

McKenzie Rye Whiskey is made from local rye grain and is distilled using old-time techniques. We age this whiskey in new charred oak casks and finish in sherry barrels from local wineries. The sherry balances the spiciness of the rye and also gives a nod to the wine region where this whiskey is produced.
