Distillery Information

Made from rye whiskies distilled by Kentucky Artisan Distillery (of Jefferson's fame), Ohio's Middle West Distillery, Indiana's MGP, and New York Distilling Co., this is a real rye drinker's rye. All the ryes are at least 4 years old and with mashbills made up of as low as 51% rye, all the way up to 100% rye.
In the United States, rye whiskey is, by law, made from a mash of at least 51 percent rye. (The other ingredients in the mash are usually corn and malted barley.) It is distilled to no more than 160 U.S. proof (80% abv) and aged in charred, new oak barrels.
In the past 20 years, more and more producers have turned to making “high rye” Bourbons, made with an increased amount of rye in the mash bill, perhaps 20% or more. They appeal to drinkers who need that extra bite of spice in their bourbon with less sweetness. The higher the rye content, the spicier the bourbon.
Rye whiskey can be traced back all the way to 1750 — several decades before the invention of bourbon whiskey. Rye whiskey was created in Pennsylvania when farmers and immigrants attempted to create whiskeys similar to what they would've enjoyed in their home countries.Cream of Kentucky 12.3 Years Old is the second release from J.W. Rutledge Distillery, founded by former Four Roses master distiller Jim Rutledge.
