Of the Maple Rye Straight Rye Whisky, Katia Dugala, one of the owners of Eight Settlers, had this to say, “Barrel finished and handcrafted locally, Maple Rye was inspired by our master distiller and executive chef’s New England roots. This delightful spirit is a robust and smooth straight rye whiskey with a slightly sweet, bold yet smooth aroma. The perfect combination of distinct spice and pepper notes are complimented with a subtle maple sweetness. This balanced combination delivers complex flavors while maintaining a smooth finish.”

The afterparty will be an evening of live entertainment you won’t want to miss! To keep guests rocking and rolling all night long at Spirit Fest, Eight Settlers will be featuring a lineup of great local bands and a DJ, a tarot card reader, and something you don’t see often...a night circus!
