**Dry Fly Triticale is a hybrid of Wheat and Rye grains developed in Scotland in the late 1800’s. It offers the best of both grains in this exceptional Straight Triticale Whiskey. It took Dry Fly a long time to find the right seed, process, and barrel and think this may be the best offering yet. Enjoy!
