Rúa, or ‘red’ in Gaelic, is an apt name for this richly hued American Single Malt Whiskey. Rúa is hand-crafted from only three ingredients: 100% Organic & Non-GMO Two-Row Pilsner Barley, exceptionally pure spring water from the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains and yeast. That’s it, no additives of any kind are added. 


Getting its color from aging in Char No.3 American White Oak barrels, it carries the expected notes of vanilla and caramel. These are complemented by a very full body, notes of fresh baked bread and praline, with a long, sweet finish. It's instantly enjoyable, and a standout among American craft-distilled whiskeys.
