About Elvis The King Straight Rye Whiskey
Grain & Barrel Spirits is the passion project of Matti Anttila, a former J.P. Morgan investment banker turned spirits entrepreneur. During a business trip to Brazil, he sampled the local Brazilian cachaça. He enjoyed it so much so that he decided to launch Cabana Cachaça quickly building it into a successful brand. After another spirits investment, he founded Grain & Barrel Spirits in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2013. Today, Grain & Barrel Spirits is a global beverage platform that develops authentic spirit brands.
One such brand is Elvis Whiskey. "Elvis was one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century and continues to inspire his fans today," says Anttila. "We look forward to launching the brand, which is sure to be a highly sought-after collector’s item." The brand consists of 2 expressions, meticulously sourced & blended by a team of experts and industry veterans in Tennessee.
This straight rye whiskey celebrates the King of Rock & Roll and the immense influence he has had on music and pop culture. Crafted with a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% malted barley, the 90-proof expression is sweet with bright citrus, spice, toasted oak, butterscotch, and vanilla 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.
