About Putnam New England Single Barrel Cask Strength Rye

Finished with Quabbin Reservoir water, it is aged in American white oak casks, before being bottled at 118-130 proof. As each barrel is unique, the proof and flavor profile can vary.

About Boston Harbor Distillery
Rhonda Kallman had a quarter of a century of experience in craft beer brewing when she went looking for a fresh challenge. Missing the thrill of the early days of craft beer, she set her sights on the craft distilling industry, founding the Boston Harbor Distillery. "Ironically, the process for whiskey starts off as beer, so I’ve now come full circle. I’m excited about the future for craft distilled spirits and we are making some of the best in the business," says Kallman.
Situated at The Port on Boston Harbor, the distillery operates from a former mill building, which was built in 1859. After hiring Dr. James Swan, a renowned whiskey-making expert, and convincing the award-winning distiller John Couchot to move to Boston and join their ranks, the operation was ready to go.
Today the distillery houses hundreds of barrels of whiskeys of all sorts, as well as rum, liqueurs, and other spirits. Their range includes Putnam Whiskey, Lawley's Small Batch Rum, Spirit of Boston (expressions, distilled from various different Samuel Adams beers), and Boston Harbor Cream and Coffee Liqueurs.
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.
