Learn more about rye whiskey
Well loved rye whiskies including Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek, Bulleit and Rittenhouse can be found here at Drinksupermarket.com
Rye whiskey is made from at least 51% rye, with the other ingredients being corn and/or malted barley. Distilled to no more than 160 (U.S.) proof, rye whiskey aged in charred, new oak barrels. The whiskey must be put into such barrels at no more than 125 (U.S.) proof. Rye whiskey often has distinct spicy or fruity flavours which separates it from bourbon, which is often a sweeter style. Due to its distinctive flavour profile, rye is sometimes referred to as America's equivalent of an Islay whisky.
