About Four Gate Sherry Finished Rye DownUnder Batch 16

Four Gate is a whiskey company from Louisville, Kentucky that specializes in sourced whiskey blends. The company blends the highest quality whiskey available to create new, unique, and exciting batches of barrel-finished craft American whiskey. They work closely with the barrel experts at the family-owned, Louisville-based Kelvin Cooperage to find new and innovative ways for barrel finishing their releases. Four Gate was founded in 2018 by Bill Straub, who is the company’s Chief Blending Officer, and Bob D’Antoni, the Chief Barrel Officer. While Straub has leveraged his knowledge of bourbon and the industry as founder and Editor-In-Chief of ModernThirst.com, D’Antoni is a successful local entrepreneur who has used his connections to establish relationships to get his hands on some terrific bourbon.

Four Gate Whiskey Company started releasing its small-batch expressions with innovative finishes in 2019, gaining much critical acclaim from the start. Batches 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8 all received Whisky Advocate scores of 90 points or higher, and various well-regarded writers and online reviewers named batches 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 10 amongst the top 10 American whiskeys of 2019 and 2020.

The 16th release is called Rye DownUnder. It's a 7-year-old rye whiskey that was distilled in Indiana from a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% malted barley. The base is the same whiskey that they released unfinished in 2020 as their first rye whiskey expression. This time, it was finished in Apera sherry casks that were imported from Australia by Kelvin Cooperage. The barrel-proof spirit was bottled at 110.2 proof and is limited to a scant 2,168 bottles.

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.
