About Bone Snapper X-Ray 4 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey
Referred to by some as the “backbone” of the United States, the Midwest often conjures images of highly-skilled, industrious people whose hard work in fields and factories contributes immensely to the prosperity of our nation. For many such Americans, a glass of bourbon has long been the reward for a tough day spent working in those fields and factories, and Backbone Bourbon Company was established to create big, bold flavors deserving of our attention at the end of a long day.
This Bone Snapper X Ray 4YO rye is produced by Backbone Bourbon Co. Distilled from a 95% rye and 5% malt mash bill, this rye is crafted in small batches and aged for four years in Bardstown, KY. Nonchill filtered, Bone Snapper ryes are bold and uncut, bottled at a higher proof than most ryes. Bottled at 110 proof, this rye is bold, rich, and smooth.

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.
