The use of fresh, 'virgin' American Oak barrels is one of the key contributors to the overall flavour of Kentucky Bourbons, bold with spice, vanilla and a strong woody influence.
America has seen a considerable growth of craft and small-scale producers, many of which are eschewing the traditional styles, offering a more diverse range of grains, casks and types of whiskey being produced.
American Whiskey — Rittenhouse
Rittenhouse Rye 100 Proof 750ml 50%
Region: North American
This is the 100 Proof (50% ABV) version of the Rittenhouse Rye - a famous straight Kentucky Rye made at the Heaven Hill distillery. The higher strength makes it particularly good for use in punchy cocktails or for sipping neat, on the rocks or with a splash of water.
