Rittenhouse Bottled in Bond Straight Rye Whisky
Although distilled and bottled in Louisville, Kentucky, Rittenhouse is interestingly produced in the tradition of the classic Pennsylvania or 'Monongahela' rye whiskeys. Rittenhouse is a much acclaimed rye now enjoying a comeback throughout the country as today's sophisticated American whiskey consumer re-discovers classic whiskey styles. Likewise, the brand is beloved by mixologists for its robust style and enjoys a renaissance as cocktails regain popularity. Rittenhouse is produced in the tradition of the classic rye whiskeys that were once the preeminent American whiskey style, kept alive through the lean years by Heaven Hill and two other distilleries. An excellent rye whiskey at a very competitive price.
Rye was the first Colonial American whiskey, and was the most popular spirit in the US for more than a century until it fell out of favor. Made in a classic Pennsylvania style at the Heaven Hill distillery in Kentucky, this has been aged for at least four years in barrel and bottled at 100 proof. To be called “Bottled in Bond” it also has to be the product of a single distillery, made in a single season in a single year.
