    Redemption Sur Lee is a limited edition rye release for the whiskey brand which was influenced by the French winemaking technique called "sur lie" — wine which is aged with the lees (mostly dead yeast cells). Here Redemption uses the backset that comes off the still during distillation which they are calling "whiskey lees." These whiskey lees are placed into the barrels before aging and then the barrels are periodically rotated to keep the whiskey interacting with the lees. Redemption Sur Lee is bottled without chill filtration at 94 proof. Available in limited release as of October 2022 in NY, DE, FL, CA, TX & MA. (SRP $59.99)
