In the pre-prohibition era, Rye whiskey was America’s number one spirit. It has taken almost 100 years for category make a come-back and, with that, Redemption brings back this bold, spicy, “rye-forward” whiskey to the world. Now it’s time to truly rediscover America’s original favourite.
Redemption whiskey is carefully hand-crafted in the river town of Lawrenceburg, Indiana at the 172-year-old MGP Distillery – Whisky Advocate’s 2015 Distiller of the Year. While Redemption is perfect to enjoy neat or on the rocks, it also serves as an excellent base in classic and modern cocktails. The product’s bold, spicy notes shine through any cocktail without overpowering the drink.
Rye whiskey gave us the classics – the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, and the Waldorf, to name a few. Bartenders at the forefront of the trade are using ‘rye-forward’ whiskey in cocktails because of their appreciation for bold, spicy, yet smooth flavours. Beyond the Classics, ‘rye-forward’ whiskies are a favourite amongst today’s modern cocktail creations.
