In 2016 One Eight Distilling, a grain-to-glass distillery, united all of their products under one brand name “District Made". This whiskey was originally called Rock Creek Rye but is now rebranded under the new umbrella. This straight rye whiskey is made from a mash bill of 60% rye, 27% malted rye, and 13% corn. It is aged a minimum of two years in new, charred American oak and bottled at 47% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"Starts with lovely fruit and a bit of perfume. On a second sniff there are more traditional rye aromas of toasted grain and kitchen spices. The palate is luxuriously oily and shows a bit more maturity after the initial fruit. Towards the finish there's toasted nuts and salted butter. Overall, it’s a kind and generous rye."
