About Alley 6 Rye Whiskey
Emphasizing quality ingredients, and innovation, their spirits harbor depth of complexity and character. Alley 6 Rye Whiskey is a genuine small-batch whiskey, twice distilled over direct-fire, using traditional copper alembic pot stills from a rye malt mash comprised of 78% rye and 22% aromatic malted barley from Heidelberg Germany. Each batch is aged for a minimum of nine months in small, heavy charred, new American White Oak barrels.
This young, vibrant spirit has a complex flavor and a smoothness in character. Expect flavors of honey and oak and imparts hints of vanilla, rye spice, and a nice subtle caramel note on the palate. Alley 6 Rye received a Gold medal Best of Class, Best of Division Distilled Spirits and Cocktail Competition 2018, and a Gold medal at the Craft Distillers Spirits Competition in 2017.

As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin.
It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.
By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.
