About Boone County Small Batch Rye Whiskey
It's been quite a journey from the beginnings of Boone County Distilling in 1833 up until the release of the Boone County Small Batch Rye Whiskey. The distillery that was opened by the Snyder brothers was eventually shut down, only to be re-established nearly a century later at a new location in Independence, Kentucky by Jack Wells and Josh Quinn. This expression pays tribute to the rich history of the distillery. Crafted from a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% malted barley, it's a bold, rich, and flavorful expression with notes of caramel, rye bread, fruit, baking spices, oak, and vanilla. It's bottled at 90.8 proof.

About Boone County
In 1833 in Kentucky’s Boone County, a man named William Snyder made the impactful decision to buy a flour mill. Within three years he had begun operating a distillery along with the mill. Soon after, his whiskey business became the largest in the nation, exceeding his profits in the flour business.
Almost two centuries later, this is the same pioneering spirit that Boone County Distilling Company now crafts their authentic bourbon in the northern foothills of Kentucky. The brand infused with the stories of those who came before, men like Snyder, Col William Appleton, J.C., Jenkins and James Gaff. Julius Freiberg and Levi Works.
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.
