Top 10 Rye picks



Rittenhouse Straight Rye - This is the “Bottled in Bond” release from Rittenhouse, meaning that the spirit has been aged for at least 4 years in a federally bonded warehouse. It must also be the product of one distiller, at one distillery from one single distilling season and bottled at 100% Proof, i.e. 50% abv. Rittenhouse is made by Heaven Hill, which was founded shortly after the repeal of Prohibition in 1933 and has since become the largest independent, family-owned producer of distilled spirits in USA.







E.H. Taylor Straight Rye Whiskey - A small batch straight rye whiskey from Buffalo Trace Distillery using a mashbill containing only rye and malted barley. Named after the famous Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor who was an early pioneer of the bourbon industry. Bottled in bond at 50% or 100 proof.






Michters US*1 Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey - This single-barrel rye whiskey from Michter's works a treat both neat and in cocktails. Peppery and spicy, this also displays refreshing orange notes, plus sweet toffee and butterscotch. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel for a rye, this is clean and balanced, on the finish the caraway and fennel seed kicks in.







WhistlePig Piggy Back 96.5 Proof  - In the summer of 2018, the legendary Dave Pickerell returned to the barrelhouses with one mission in mind: create the best Rye Whiskey for use in the world’s best cocktails. He knew he wanted a mashbill of 100% rye to capture a full-flavored spice. He just needed to land on the ideal age statement and bottling strength to realize his dream. It didn’t take long for him to arrive at perfection: a rye aged not less than six years, carrying a strength of precisely 96.56 proof. A sturdy thread of cinnamon and citrus binds it all together.




Bulleit Rye Small Batch Whiskey - This is a small batch, straight rye whiskey made from 95% rye and 5% barley. Bulleit Bourbon has always had a high rye content and this particular rye whiskey has been created as a further development of their range. An award winning rye whisky, it is recognised as a high quality spirit. Displaying a rustic colour and rich oaky aromas. A smooth flavour with hints of vanilla, honey and spice. Presents a crisp finish with clean, long and lingering flavours.







Knob Creek Rye Bourbon - Handcrafted in limited quantities and carefully matured for exceptional quality and flavour, it is aged for nine years and bottled at 50% ABV. Made in small batches, patiently aged in the deepest charred barrels, and bottled at a full 100 proof to maintain Knob Creek's approach to big flavour. Only instead of corn as the master grain, it's rye,  creating a unique spicy, smooth flavour.





FEW Rye Whiskey - The generous rye content is married with the sweetness of corn for a genteel interpretation of the venerable spirit. Patiently aged in air-dried oak barrels, its spicy character transcends mere resurgence. Behold – the renaissance of rye.







WhistlePig 10 year old Straight Rye Whiskey - WhistlePig 10 year is aged longer than most American Whiskeys to deliver more bold and complex flavours to your home bar. WhistlePig are leading a Rye Revolution from their farm and craft distillery in Vermont (and yes, they have pigs).






Michters 10 Year Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey - There is nothing quite like really good rye distillate that’s been aged with thoughtful care for over a decade in a barrel that was toasted and then charred. Matured in a warehouse that has been heat cycled producing a deep, rich flavour profile perfect for sipping.





Parkers Heritage Collection 13th Edition 8 Year Old Rye  - The Parker's Heritage collection of small-batch bourbons are a series of rare, limited-edition releases, crafted in tribute to Master Distiller Parker Beam and his five decades of experience distilling whiskey. The 13th release in the Parker's Heritage series, and the first straight rye release from the collection. Aged for 8 years with 9 months in heavily charred barrels. The 'alligator char' adds another dimension to the flavour.
