Redemption High Rye Bourbon Whiskey
We can never have too much Rye, so Redemption High Rye Bourbon recipe approaches the upper limit of allowable Rye grain in a Bourbon mash bill. Aromas of light vanilla, red berry fruitiness and a slight hint of oak. On the palate, spicy, woody, and minty notes. Fennel-like notes of light licorice and black pepper from the Rye. The finish is long and smooth with a nice spice from the high Rye content.
Mash Bill: 60% Corn, 36% Rye, 4% Malted Barley
Rye was once the number one spirit in America, but over time it fell from grace. Redemption Whiskey is a brand with one purpose and one purpose only: to bring Rye back to its rightful place at the bar.
Truly American, the spirit is crafted in the river town of Lawrenceburg, Indiana at the nearly 200-year old MGP distillery.
Redemption is known for its ‘Rye Forward’ recipes, high proof, quality aging and exceptional blending techniques done by Master Blender, Dave Carpenter, that work to highlight the dry, spicy flavors for which Rye was originally celebrated.
Beyond the blending of core expressions, Dave is also responsible for the launching innovations such as the Redemption Rum Cask Finish and a Redemption Single Barrel Program.
Made in the style of true pre-prohibition rye, Redemption drinks well neat or on the rocks, but it also shines in any classic cocktail such as a Manhattan, Old Fashioned, or Sazerac.
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.
