Gambler, buffalo hunter, army scout, gunfighter and
newspaperman, William “Bat” Masterson did it all
and did it well. And what better way to honor such
a rarefied man than with a truly exceptional whis-
key. Crafted by artisans, distilled in a pot still and
aged in white-oak casks for just over 10 years,
it’s the kind of drink that Bat would’ve
surely raved about.

the ryeMasterson’s is a 100% rye whiskey that far exceeds industry standards for rye whiskey. Our artisans incorporate only the most fragrant and plump grains of rye and pure glacial water from the northern Rockies into a meticulous distillation process that utilizes an old-fashioned pot still.

the tasteMasterson’s is all rye and only rye, meeting the strictest definition of traditional rye whiskey. The rye is grown in the verdant Pacific Northwest, and we choose only rye that exhibits the perfect combination of weight, plumpness and rich, earthy fragrance. These key characteristics, along with our meticulous distillation process, give Masterson’s its uniquely smooth taste.

did you know masterson’s comes out of the barrel at 125 proof?
Through a refining process, we tame it down to 90 proof (45% alcohol by volume) to give the whiskey a more mellow, smooth profile.
white oak is the oak you want.
Oak barrels are one of the many ways Masterson’s attains its unique taste profile. And white oak has the tightest grain and is heavier than other oak wood, allowing the wood to maintain its integrity during the ten-year aging process while imparting a subtle but distinct flavor.
have you ever inoculated yeast?
We have. And while it sounds rather gnarly, it’s a necessary part of the fermentation process. In fact, our dry yeast helps give Masterson’s its unique taste profile.
