Putnam New England Rye Whiskey

Crafted from 95% rye malt and 5% two-row barley, this craft rye is aged in heavily-charred American white oak barrels and bottled at 86 proof. Spicy, rounded, and rich, it feels equally at home as a sipper or in cocktails.

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.

The Putnam New England Rye Whiskey is named after Silas Putnam, an entrepreneur and inventor that worked at the historic Boston Harbor Distillery building, where he pioneered the automated production of hot-forged horse nail, selling them during the Civil War. Crafted from 95% rye malt and 5% two-row barley, it's first distilled to 155 proof. It is then aged in heavily-charred American white oak barrels, before being bottled at 86 proof.
