Louisiana Rice Vodka 

In 2018, J.T. Meleck Distillers launched it's Louisiana Rice Vodka made 100% from the rice we harvest on our farm in Branch, Louisiana. This rice spirit reaches 191 proof in the distilling process, and then brought down to 80 proof for consumption. A clear spirit with a touch of sweetness on the nose, and slight vanilla characteristics on the palate. Beautiful viscosity and a clean spirit. 

American Rice Whiskey

Released in July of 2022, this is J.T. Meleck's long talked about product that will now be consistently available on the market. 

Aged for almost 5 years in American Oak 53-gallon barrels


Appearance is amber in color and deep in intensity. Aroma characteristics include vanilla crème cake and white chocolate pudding. On the palate is a smooth texture with hints of butterscotch, silky caramel, crème brulee, and dark chocolate with a pit of spice. An excellent spirit meant to be enjoyed neat, over ice, or in a classic cocktail.
