Today is a happy day as we are absolutely bursting with great Ryes. Some have been unavailable the entire summer. As many of you know their is a significant shortage of Rye Whiskeys these days. This is mostly the result of unforeseen spikes in Rye consumption and sales, and understandably it's not exactly easy to up the supply of something that takes several years to make. Also just FYI I'm down to my last 3 bottles of Russell's Reserve 6yr Rye. This item has been re-assigned to restaurants and bars only permanently. Almost all retail shops are out at this point so savor each precious drop if you happen to get your hands on one of these.
-Whistle Pig 10yr Rye, made in Vermont with 100% rye.
-Copper Fox 12 month Rye, made in Virginia with 2/3 rye and 1/3 barley, aged in bourbon barrels with applewood and cherrywood chips. Very elegant with flavorful fruit notes even at its younger age.
-(RI)1 Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey
Back in stock:
-Hudson Manhattan Rye, Tuthilltown Spirits New York
-Sazerac 6yr Rye
-Russell's Reserve 6yr Small Batch Rye
