Following the end of the American Revolutionary War, Johannes Reginald Beam emigrated from Germany to the United States, and eventually settled in Kentucky County. At the time, Kentucky County was still considered part of Virginia, and was overseen by a military governor named John J. Bowman. After settling in Kentucky, Beam began harvesting corn and set forth a family tradition by distilling the excess grains he harvested into whiskey. Since then, seven generations of the Beam family have been involved in whiskey production for the eponymous company (the company is actually named after James Beam, who rescued it following Prohibition). Basil Hayden’s is following up their distinctive Dark Rye (a blend of Canadian and Kentucky ryes with port wine) with a unique hybrid whiskey, a limited edition blend of four separate Kentucky whiskeys. Two by Two Rye is comprised of two bourbons—one aged for 6 years and one aged for 13—and two Kentucky straight ryes—one aged for 5 years and the other 7 years. Although the blend’s exact recipe and proportions are not disclosed, the majority of the blend is rye. This highly nuanced, balanced blend embodies the best that both types of whiskey have to offer: the sweetness of bourbon and the spiciness of rye. Pick up your bottle today!

Nuanced sweetness. Toffee, brown sugar, caramel and lifted candied citrus notes are abundant on the nose. Flavors of caramel, maple syrup, rye spice, and fruity honeyed notes cascade all the way to the finish.
