About Bradshaw Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey
Bradshaw Bourbon, produced in collaboration with the Silver Screen Bottling Company, is distilled by a third-generation master distiller on the site of one of the first distilleries in Kentucky, which was issued the state’s 10th distillery license in 1885 (DSP-KY-10). Despite major disruptions, such as a devastating fire in 1918, ownership changes, prohibition, and bankruptcies, the distillery in Owensboro has been making bourbon and rye for nearly 130 years, and has produced several storied Kentucky Bourbon brands. The distillery, now owned by Terressentia Corporation, recently returned to its original name – Green River Distilling Co, and is a proud partner to some of the fastest-growing spirits brands in the world.
Under the watch of third generation Master Distiller Jacob Call, the distillery continues the tradition of producing fine bourbon and rye using only locally sourced Kentucky grown corn and oak char barrels. Bradshaw Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey is bottled at 103.8 proof, exhibiting plenty of complexity for a young whiskey with earthy, mineral, fruity, and spicy notes.

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.
