Pikesville Straight Rye Whiskey
Pikesville Straight Rye Whiskey is back and better than ever. Rye whiskeys were extremely popular around the turn of the century, but as other grains began to make their entrance rye became harder and harder to find.
Crafted by Heaven Hills’ Co-Master Distiller Denny Potter, Pikesville Straight Rye Whiskey is made from a mash of rye, corn and barley, and evokes the spicy character of traditional Maryland rye whiskies. “To set it apart from other ryes, I selected barrels at a minimum of six years old from high storage and bottled it at a proof that allows the most character from the barrel to come through without overpowering the spicy grain notes,” says Potter.
The current run of Pikesville Straight Rye Whiskey, distilled in Maryland, offers a oak smoothness with subtle fruit hints. It takes well to aging and improves body and depth over time. It is an affordable option for rye whiskey lovers that offers superior drinking with high citrus qualities.
Pikesville Straight Rye Whiskey will leave you wondering why it was ever gone in the first place.
