About Rabbit Hole Founder's Collection: Boxergrail Cask Strength Rye
Rabbit Hole Distilling, founded by Kaveh Zamanian, produces a beautiful range of award-winning spirits. Their bespoke 24 ft Vendome Copper & Brass still was custom-built only a few blocks from their distillery and their bourbon and rye whiskeys are 100% Kentucky made, crafted to create a unique drinking experience. They produced their first barrel from their very own mix of carefully selected grains, which are mashed and fermented at ideal temperatures to preserve certain precise flavors and aromas, before being distilled without compromise.
"My heart and soul go into every single drop of liquid I create, and all of it is precious to me. Yet among the vast number of barrels I laid down when I began Rabbit Hole, years later I discovered a few exceptional barrels whose rye had a nearly transcendent quality. Those are the barrels I harvested for the launch of Founder’s Collection and this is the Kentucky rye whiskey that I’ve created for my first cask-strength offering," says Zamanian. The release comes in an exquisite gift box with an embossed signature of the founder as well as the bottle number on a ribbon label. The cork features his family crest with the family motto "Amare et Opus" (Love and Work) inscribed. A total of 1,315 bottles of this luxurious expression are available.

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.
