About Redemption Tyler's Mistake Blended Straight 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 is owned by Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits, they produce several whiskeys at the MGP Distillery in Indiana. This new release is said to be a “mistake,” according to creators, this new Redemption Tyler’s Mistake whiskey arose from an accidental combination of rye and bourbon barrels during production. The result was a pleasant blend and so this “happy accident” was left alone for a few years before being bottled at its prime. Bottled at 94 proof, this limited edition offering is a blend of 2 & 3 year old rye and 9 year old bourbons.

About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
