American Whiskey - Rye
The US is the spiritual heartland of Bourbon and rye whiskey, popularised around the world by classic cocktails from the Old Fashioned to the Manhattan.
Distilled and matured at Heaven Hill distillery in Bernheim, Kentucky, Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey has a storied heritage with roots in Philadelphia. This spicy, full-bodied rye is bottled-in-bond, which means it was produced at one distillery in a single season, matured for at least four years and bottled at 50% abv.
Serving Suggestions: Rittenhouse is a solid benchmark whiskey for classic cocktails. Try it in an Old Fashioned, Manhattan or Boulevardier, or simply sip it neat.
Upfront it’s delicately honeyed with gentle aromas of toasted rye, caramel and sunflower seeds. The palate, however, is a different story – it’s bold, spicy and peppery, a heat that gradually subsides into toasted rye bread, cooked orchard fruits and runny honey with a hint of orange zest and cola cubes.
