Rye Whiskey Brands

What is Rye Whiskey?

"An' it's whiskey, rye whiskey
Whiskey I cry
If whiskey don't kill me
I live till I die"

Although not a bourbon, Rye Whiskey usually undergoes the same processes with the exception that Rye is used as the basis of the mash instead of corn.

Rye Whiskey must contain a minimum of 51% rye grain, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof) and be aged for a minimum of two years in new charred barrels. A small amount of straight Rye whiskey is bottled and marketed, but most of the industry production is blended into other whiskies to give them additional character and structure.
