Highspire Pure Rye Whiskey is made from 100% specialty rye grains grown on the historic Waldeck Farm in Crestwood, Kentucky, which is only a few hundred yards from the distillery, Kindred Distilled Spirits. Once the grains have been milled, mashed and distilled, the resulting spirit is aged in California wine barrels, which balances the fresh, plump rye character with notes of fruit and spice from the wine, as well as vanilla, caramel and oak from the staves themselves.

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.
Fresh, plump rye character balanced by fruit and spice from the California wine barrels. Notes of vanilla, caramel and oak and present throughout, resulting in an extremely mellow and well-balanced whiskey.
