About Coalition Straight Rye Whiskey Pauillac Barriques

"A spirits pioneer, a veteran whiskey distiller and a world-renowned winemaker walk into a bar…" It's no beginning to a joke, but rather how the story of Coalition Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey began. The three are Leonid Yangarber, Steve Thompson, and Ludwig Vanneron. Between them, an idea began to form. They would seek out wine casks from some of the most renowned wine regions in the world and use these to elevate their own flavor-packed rye whiskey.

It all started with Thompson's hand-crafted rye whiskey that was made in 2015 at his Kentucky Artisan Distillery in Crestwood, KY. It was 100% rye whiskey that was crafted with Ryman grains that were grown right next to the distillery, at the historic Waldeck farm. The spicy spirit would serve as the basis for their expressions ― the next step had them turn to Bordeaux, France. They found them in Margaux, Pauillac, and Sauternes. This resulted in 3 beautiful rye whiskey expressions that feature eye-catching art deco-inspired bottles. The 4th is the original barrel-proof 100% rye whiskey.

The whiskey itself is crafted with a rare mash bill of 90% rye and 10% malted rye with no automation involved and using a pre-Prohibition all-copper pot still. It's aged between 4 and 5 years. This expression is then finished in Pauillac wine barrels for up to 9 months, resulting in a rich and robust expression that is bottled at 92.6 proof. Look for notes of dark berries and dark fruit along with spice, smoked nuts, and wood.

About Rye

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.
