Rye Whiskey

With its big, spicy nature and full bodied style rye whiskey is amongst the more robust whiskies that are made around the world. The production of rye whiskey is similar to that of bourbon but with one key difference in the ingredients. While bourbon demands the majority of the mashbill to be made up mostly of corn, rye whiskey dictates that it must contain 51% rye. Distillers can then add whatever cereals they see fit for the remaining 49%, often combining them in a certain way to maintain the character they are hoping to achieve.

 

Some people find it a tad intense, especially when it is bottled at a younger age, but it has proven to be one of the most versatile cocktail spirits and its depth of flavour and strength of character and form the basis of many classic cocktails. Every cocktail bar in the world will have at least one bottle of rye whiskey at their disposal to be used in the make-up of the most loved  mixed drinks in the world - The Old Fashioned, The Manhattan and The Sazerac to name but three. This big whiskey has carved itself out a niche and cult following like only a big hitting spirit can.
