About Crooked Water Regatta Rye Rum Barrel Finish Straight Rye Whisky
When Heather Manley formed Crooked Water in 2013, she was searching for a venture that would allow her to express her passion for spirits and innovation. She partnered with the award-winning Yahara Bay Distillery in Madison, Wisconsin, soon releasing Kings Port, a port cask-finished bourbon. Soon, the lineup grew to include several expressions of modern and innovative spirits that include bourbon, rye, vodka, gin, brandy, liqueur, and ready-to-pour cocktails. Regatta Rye is a straight rye whiskey that is initially matured in oak casks for 2 years before being finished in rum casks from Barbados. Bottled at 95 proof ― Crooked Water always strives for higher-proof spirits ― it's a deliciously spicy expression that invokes days spent at sea.

It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.
