Celebrate America’s Signature Holiday with America’s Signature Whiskey: Rye

Tagged:

Bourbon may officially be America’s spirit, and the 4th of July our celebration of independence, but two important traditions existed at least as early, if not before. Thanksgiving Day and Rye Whiskey. In the early years of American whiskey production, rye was the dominant style, especially in the east, eventually supplanted by the sweeter, rounder and easier to produce bourbon. As you give thanks, raise a glass of the spirit that shaped our whiskey tradition.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Jazz Age

Tagged:

Originally, the Sazerac cocktail was made with French brandy. In 1873, the recipe for the Sazerac Cocktail was altered to replace the French brandy with American Rye whiskey. We decided to recreate the original with Hennessy Cognac – plus ginger syrup, a few dashes of barrel aged bitters, and of course, a heavy absinthe rinse.

Binny’s Handpicks from Oppidan

Tagged:

Oppidan is located in Wheeling, Illinois, just outside of Chicago. They are incorporating a Solera technique with bourbon, and also producing a beautiful rye. At the Whiskey Hotline, we love young rye done right. We’ve also been finding whiskey from smaller barrels that taste much older than you would think. We were fortunate enough to sit down with the team from Oppidan a few months ago and selected 3 gorgeous ryes and 2 bourbons. These are all bottled at cask strength, and well worth seeking out.
