Redemption High-Rye Bourbon...$21.99
Straight American Bourbon Whiskey
We think you can never have too much rye, so our High-Rye Bourbon mash-bill approaches the upper limit of allowable rye grain in a bourbon mash-bill. Bottled at 92 proof the dry spiciness of the rye balances the sweetness of the corn for a really wonderful sipping experience on its own or in classic cocktail recipes.

Redemption Rye Process
The U.S. Government Standards require "rye whiskey" to be made from a mash of at least 51% rye grain. For Redemption Rye we use a mash of 95% premium rye grain for a spicy and bold flavor and we use premium rye, which costs more but is well worth it, because when you use good ingredients you get good rye whiskey.
The U.S. Government Standards also require that rye whiskey be aged in "new charred oak barrels" which means that new oak barrels are burned on the inside, and it's from the charred wood and the expansion and contraction of the whiskey in and through the wood of the barrel through the seasons that whiskey gets its amber color and the flavor is smoothed. The standards do not specify a minimum time the rye whiskey needs to stay in the barrel, but once it has been in the barrel for 2 years it earns the designation of "straight" rye whiskey. Redemption Rye is aged for over 2 years.
We bottle in small batches which allows us to leave the whiskey in the barrels longer for the most flavor and color. We empty the barrels and filter for particles, cut it down to 92 proof and bottle it immediately so that the most flavor from the barrel makes it into the bottle. We then mark each bottle with the batch and bottle number by hand.
Then the bottles are packed into cases and shipped around to the country, and that's the Redemption Rye process! So enjoy this fine rye responsibly and share our pride in this great American Spirit.
