Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskeys are offered as a Cask Strength release. Once the traditional sweet mash process is distilled in our column stills they enter the barrel at the lowest entry proof they know of in Kentucky. They barrel at 100 proof and 105 proof to highlight the balance of the distillate and alternate solubility expression we get from the barrel at a lower proof. They also barreled at a gradient of proofs between 100 and 120 proof for their first few years before settling into 100 and 105 proof. This is the reason you will find releases of our cask strength Rye varying in proof.
Our three-grain recipe is 56 percent rye, 33 percent corn and 11 percent malted barley. Their rye mash bill is one we created for a broader balance of flavor to offset the typical high ryes commonly found.
