About Redemption High Rye Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Prior to Prohibition, rye whiskey was the staple ingredient of classic cocktails such as the Old Fashioned, the Manhattan and the Whiskey Sour. Spicier and more robust than malt whisky, rye was so popular that George Washington distilled it at his estate in Mount Vernon. As distilleries across the country were forced to close their doors due to Prohibition, however, bootleggers began distilling gin instead of rye, and for good reason — gin didn't require aging under the watchful eye of a master distiller and its true flavors could be hidden behind a mask of botanicals. As Americans grew accustomed to gin, rye whiskey became an anachronism.
Redemption High-Rye Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from a mash of 60% corn, 38.2% rye and 1.8% malted barley, leading to a spirit somewhere in between America's historical staple (rye), and its current love (bourbon). After distillation, it is aged for a minimum of two years in new, charred American oak casks before being brought to proof and bottled by hand. It has notes of sweet caramel, dried fruits and toffee, which complement hints of cinnamon and spicy rye.
Temptation Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from a mash of 75% corn, 20% rye and 5% malted barley. Much like Redemption Rye and Redemption Bourbon, Temptation Bourbon is aged for a minimum of two years in new, charred American oak casks before being brought to proof and bottled by hand. As a result of having more corn as compared to Redemption Bourbon, Temptation Bourbon has a sweeter flavor profile and includes notes of vanilla, coconut and bananas that lead to long, satisfying finish.
