Once a popular spirit in the United States, rye whiskey was a key ingredient in numerous classic cocktails including The Manhattan, The Whiskey Sour, The Sazerac, and The Old Fashioned. This was changed by Prohibition, and by the time the law was repealed, the market had suffered greatly. However, due to the resurgence of cocktail culture, many brands of rye whiskey such as Rittenhouse, Templeton and Sazerac Rye have become increasingly popular.

Where to buy High West Double Rye Whiskey High West Double Rye Whiskey (750ml)

Both the nose and palate open strong and spicy, but soon give way to complex notes of mint, clove, cinnamon, licorice root, pine nuts and dark chocolate. A surprising note of gin botanicals merges with an undercurrent of caramel, vanilla and sweet corn on the finish.

High West Distillery "The 36th Vote" Barreled Manhattan High West Distillery "The 36th Vote" Barreled Manhattan (750ml)


While many of the cocktail-in-a-bottle products leave much to be desired, High West Distillery's "The 36th Vote" Barreled Manhattan is certainly an exception. High West has created their Manhattan following the authentic pre-Prohibition recipe, and then aged the mixture in the rye whiskey's American white oak barrel for 90 days. The time spent in oak allows the spiciness of the rye to fully integrate with the sweet, herbal flavors of the vermouth and the complexity of the bitters - a result that can not be achieved by making the cocktail from scratch.

Hillrock Estate Distillery Double Cask Rye Whiskey Hillrock Estate Distillery Double Cask Rye Whiskey (750ml)


Gold Medal - San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2014
Hillrock Estate Distillery Double Cask Rye is their “field-to-glass” rye whiskey made from organically grown rye at their own estate. The whiskey is double-matured, first in traditional oak casks and then in charred American white oak barrels. The American oak barrels were charred with #4 char and air-seasoned for over two years before assembly. The Double Cask aging process extends a wonderful balance between the spicy rye notes with the mellow, caramel sweetness. Deep golden amber in color, this whiskey starts off with the aromas of caramelized wood sugar, vanilla and rye, gradually expanding into butterscotch, cinnamon and sweet spices, leading up to a long, warm finish.
