American Whiskey Convention 2021 – Part 1

Finally, the 16 month wait was over. The American Whiskey Convention 2021 was a major success. With over 250 whiskeys and bourbons to sample it was a hard decision on where to start. We got to meet and speak to some incredible people in the industry. Guests shared their observations on what their favorite picks were and who stood out as a surprise.

The theme this year was Whiskey on the Water and it was hosted by the Independence Seaport Museum. There were master distillers and experts on hand to share the latest stories and philosophies about all things whiskey. Discussion forums focused on the grain. The Convention was created by the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation in 2016. It pays homage to the farmers and those caretakers of the grains that we all love so much. Laura Fields worked tirelessly this year to make sure that the event was compliant with local covid rules. The event is an opportunity for novices and experienced whiskey aficionados alike to enjoy their own experience. The people that we spoke to came away with a fantastic experience. There is so much to see and do that you can’t possibly do it all in one evening.

History In The Distilling

Distilling Rosen Rye

An anxious crowd gathered around Laura Fields, of the Seed Spark Project, as she introduced the star of the day. Since 2015, Rosen rye seeds have been cultivated and re-planted on agricultural test plots in State College, PA to produce enough usable grain to distill into whiskey. Rosen rye had been in the fermenter since September 3rd and was ready to be distilled at Stoll and Wolfe Distillery in Lititz, Pennsylvania.

Dick Stoll was the last man to distill Rosen rye into whiskey at Michter’s Distillery in Schaefferstown, Pa. Liquid began to flow into the still and Dick looked on with a very watchful eye. It was an emotional moment for Erik Wolfe as he explained the process of what was about to take place in the distillation. Finally, all of the hard work and preparation would become a reality.

It was all hands on deck as things heated up. Jim Wolfe and Avianna Wolfe took their places to make sure that the pressure and temperatures remained stable as the column still began to produce the first evidence of juice. The whole team at Stoll and Wolfe was amazing. For the next 3 hours there was joy, laughter and camaraderie as guests shared stories, asked questions and got their first taste of the “White Dog”. Oh, how sweet it is!

The journey continues as some of the Rosen rye which has now been given over to the barrel gods. The remaining un-aged portion will be available to taste and sample.

It was an incredible experience to be able to watch the whole process come together. Fermented Adventure has had the pleasure of visiting many distilleries. However, it is rare to witness the production of craft distilled spirits. The day culminated with enjoying one last taste. Fermented Adventure the Podcast sat down with Dick Stoll and learned more about his story. Look for the interview on your favorite Podcast Platform.

It all started with a seed. It was a perfect day in a perfect place. It may sound cliche, but, on September 7, 2019 a lot of peoples hard work, visions and dreams came true. That’s what is at the heart of the craft distillery industry.
