Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey
2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Gold Medal Winner
Knob Creek Straight Rye Whiskey is made with a blend of the finest quality rye to create an extraordinarily smooth yet spicy finish. Knob Creek Rye is still patiently aged in the deepest charred barrels and bottled at a full 100 proof to maintain Knob Creek Bourbon’s approach to big flavor. Made with the highest quality rye for a unique spicy and smooth flavor, this rye tugs at your senses with expansive notes of herbs and rye with nuanced oak aroma, bold spicy rye flavors with undertones of vanilla and oak, finishing warm and smooth with spice throughout.
Start with a classic Old Fashioned or Manhattan and then try it with a range of drinks, or just sip it neat or with ice.
Bourbon whiskey from Knob Creek is carefully crafted in limited quantities & perfectly aged to give the full flavor of bourbon that existed pre-prohibition.
There’s no faking full bourbon flavor. It has to be earned. So that’s what Knob Creek does in Clermont: they earn it. Knob Creek starts by selecting the finest grains. And they finish by meticulously aging whiskey in white oak barrels with maximum char, for an unmistakable richness and signature sweetness. It’s the natural way. And there’s just no cheating nature.
Known for its peppery, spicy bite, Rye serves as the ideal base for cocktails like the Sazerac, Manhattan or Old Fashioned. In order for a spirit to be labeled an American Rye Whiskey, the mash bill must be comprised of at least 51% rye grain. The remainder of the mash is most often a combination of malted barley, wheat or corn. After distillation is complete, the spirit is transferred to unused, charred white oak barrels for a minimum of two years, though many producers choose to age longer.
