Single Barrel Bourbon

The story of the Palírna U Zeleného stromu (Green Tree Distillery) began on 4 July 1518 when one of the most powerful Czech lords at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries, William of Pernstein, granted brewing rights to the Green Tree house. This act started a five-hundred-year-long tradition of spirit production unique within Europe in Prostějov.

The wish to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the distillery was behind the idea to create an exclusive edition of Stará Myslivecká Rye Single Barrel. This distilate gets its unique characteristics thanks to its storage in special barrels for eight years. Each specific taste, smell and other unique properties are attributable to individual vintages and barrel type. This ensures that Stará Myslivecká Rye Single Barrel belongs among the category of collector’s editions. Its special value is also expressed by a hand-numbered label, which not only indicates the barrel of origin but also the unique bottle number within the special limited production of Stará Myslivecká Rye Single Barrel.

Stará Myslivecká Rye Single Barrel was matured for eight years in oak barrels within the Prostějov cellars. Thanks to the characteristics of the individual barrels in which it rests, this spirit’s taste and aroma are completely unique. Every bottle of the limited-edition Stará Myslivecká Rye Single Barrel emits its own fruity fragrance with a smooth vanilla and oak flavour.

The first Stará Myslivecká Rye Single Barrel limited edition whiskey bottle was hand-filled straight from an American Bourbon barrel on 4 July 2018, which is exactly 500 years from the very day our distillery was founded. Only a limited number of 834 was bottled from a total of three barrels.

Single Barrel Sherry

The story of the Palírna U Zeleného stromu (Green Tree Distillery) began on 4 July 1518 when one of the most powerful Czech lords at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries, William of Pernstein, granted brewing rights to the Green Tree house. This act started a five-hundred-year-long tradition of spirit production unique within Europe in Prostějov.

Each individually hand-labelled Stará Myslivecká Rye Single Barrel bottle has the diverse and specific characteristics of the barrel in which it was laid to rest.

For the 501st anniversary, we have prepared a special rye distilate that has been ageing and gradually attaining its unique character in a Sherry Oloroso barrel, a fortified Spanish wine from Andalusia, since 2011.

The second ‘anniversary edition’ was hand-bottled this year on the 4th of July in a symbolic number of 501 bottles.

We plan to introduce additional special flavours each year to gradually expand our range of unique flavours.

STARÁ ŽITNÁ MYSLIVECKÁ A CZECH LEGEND MADE WITH RYE

Stará Myslivecká Rye is a unique all-Czech beverage with a rich history dating back to the 16th century. The foundation of the drink is carefully selected rye distillate. Its original recipe gives it a subtle taste and a fruity flavour. The recipe has been a closely guarded secret for centuries. For its entire existence, only a small number of selected people have known the recipe.

The rye distillate is stored for 1 year in oak barrels where, thanks to maturation and original technological procedures, it gains balance and harmony.
Stará Myslivecká Rye therefore matures into an unmistakeable beverage with the character of whisky. Unlike the four-year RESERVE, one year of ageing in oak barrels manifests itself in a sharper taste with a slightly pungent fruity finish.

Fresh grain distillate that has not yet matured in the oak barrel for the required time (less than three years in the case of whisky) is known as “green whisky”. In the USA, the terms “white dog”, “high wines” or “doublings” are also used..

Colour: amber and gold
Aroma: seductive with touches of orchard fruit
Flavour: delicious and subtle, underlined with a sharp fruity finish

Throughout its existence, Stará Myslivecká Rye has collected awards at numerous international exhibitions.
