The inspiration for these whiskies comes from the pre-Prohibition era, specifically the history of the Detrick Distilling Co. in Dayton.
The LaSelle Brothers, Mike, Murphy, and Tim, set out to recreate the flavors of the past by using the Great Miami Valley aquifer’s naturally filtered and mineral-rich water.
Their grain bill includes traditional rye, white corn, wheat, and malted barley, resulting in a complex and flavorful whiskey.
The distillery takes pride in its slow pot distillation process, preserving the intricate flavors, and ages the whiskey in hand-toasted, white oak casks.
After nearly a decade of dedication, Belle of Dayton Distillery is proud to bring back Detrick Fine Whiskies, marking the first rye whiskey made in Dayton since the Prohibition era.
This release is a true “small batch” whiskey, crafted from just four barrels. Bottled at 104 proof, it offers a robust flavor profile. The retail price for Detrick Straight Rye Whiskey Batch 4 is $70 USD. It represents the culmination of years of anticipation and revives the tradition of rye whiskey in Dayton.
