Five Saints — A Robust but Smooth Rare Pennsylvania Whiskey
In July 2022, we proudly introduced our newest addition to our domestic and international award-winning spirits — Our “bourbon style” Rare Pennsylvania Whiskey. Why is it called a Rare PA Whiskey? Well, it’s rare as we make this whiskey in small hand-crafted batches. Our first lot was 363 bottles, and we will continue to produce small batches as we proof down our aged whiskey.
“PA” means we make it here in our PA distillery from PA Yellow No. 2 Corn and Rye. We transport the grain to our distillery, where we weigh it out, grind it to a smooth powder in our hammer mill and then cook the mash using enzymes on a 75% corn / 25% rye ratio grain mix — the same as our white whiskey. We transfer the cooked mash to our fermentation tanks, after which we slow distill using half the plates on Angelina (one of our column stills) to create a smooth white whiskey distillate.
Now for the aging part — we don’t use new white oak barrels, which is why we don’t call this a “Bourbon.” Instead, we add the barrels, in the form of char #3 Oak wood spirals, to the whiskey in 550 gallon stainless steel tanks. For almost two years, we change the bags containing the spirals every six weeks. The result is in the taste — At 100 Proof, a robust but super smooth sipping whiskey! The corn provides a smoothness, while the rye provides just the right amount of spiciness.

How is whiskey made?
Whiskey production involves a meticulous and time-honored process. First, grains such as barley, rye, wheat, or corn are milled and mixed with water to create a mash. This mixture is then heated, allowing the enzymes in the grains to break down the starches into fermentable sugars. Once cooled, yeast is added to the mash, initiating fermentation and transforming the sugars into alcohol. The resulting liquid, called “wash,” is distilled in copper stills to concentrate the alcohol and remove impurities.
What makes whiskey different from other spirits?
Whiskey sets itself apart from other spirits through its distinctive production process, aging, and diverse range of flavors. Unlike vodka or gin, whiskey is made from grains and relies on the complex interaction between these grains, water, and yeast during fermentation. The aging process in oak barrels further enhances whiskey’s flavor profile, imbuing it with rich, deep notes that vary depending on the barrel type and duration of maturation.
What are whiskey barrels?
Whiskey barrels play a crucial role in the maturation process, imparting unique flavors and characteristics to the spirit. These barrels, typically made from oak, allow the whiskey to breathe and interact with the wood over time. The type of oak used, as well as the barrel’s size, charring level, and previous contents (such as bourbon or sherry), all contribute to the final flavor profile of the whiskey.
What is a fermentation tank?
A fermentation tank is a large, temperature-controlled vessel used during the whiskey production process to facilitate the conversion of sugars into alcohol. Fermentation tanks are designed to maintain optimal conditions for yeast activity, ensuring a consistent and efficient fermentation process that results in a high-quality wash, ready for distillation.
What is considered a micro distillery?
A micro distillery, also known as a craft or boutique distillery, is a small-scale operation that produces limited quantities of distilled spirits, often with a strong focus on quality, craftsmanship, and unique flavor profiles. Unlike large-scale commercial distilleries, micro distilleries like us prioritize artisanal techniques, local ingredients, and innovative approaches to create distinctive and memorable whiskeys.
