The eventual release of Ragtime Rye has long been the goal of the New York Distilling Company, based in Brooklyn. As their whiskey came of age, in 53-gallon new, charred American oak barrels, the distillery released Chief Gowanus, an aged gin, and Rock and Rye, incorporating one year old rye whiskey. Here, the matured spirit, a straight rye whiskey, uses locally-grown rye grown specifically for the distillery in its mash bill. It is aged at least three years. Released September 2015.

Tasting Notes

"On the nose, find the type of spicy profile which serves as a dead giveaway of a rye whiskey. There's also wood, grain, and pepper. The palate offers more rye spice, a touch of fruit in the background, and a light caramel, with rounded, smooth flavors. The rye spice and oak close out the finish for a smooth sipper and well-aged entrant to the burgeoning rye marketplace. "
