Originally brandy producers from France, the Willett family brought their distilling knowledge with them from Europe to the American Colonies in the early 1600s. They settled in Bardstown, Kentucky and became involved with developing several of the most famous bourbon distilleries in the area. In 1935, they opened The Willet Distilling Company, which has been owned and operated by several generations of the Willett family ever since.
This rare release of Willett Rye has been aged in white oak for six years, and hand bottled at cask strength from a single barrel. Inviting aromas of spice, vanilla, caramel and butterscotch lead to a bold, peppery palate enhanced by hints of cinnamon, tobacco and clove.
