Willett Family Estate Bottled 6 Year Straight Rye
Willett Distilling Company // Indiana (bottled in Kentucky), USA
Although Willett whiskies have been around since the 1930s, Kentucky Bourbon Distillers (Willett's parent company) transitioned to sourcing and bottling whiskies rather than producing their own in the mid-1980s. The stills of the farm, however, were resurrected in 2012, and young whiskies produced at Willett began to emerge from the distillery in 2014. The 6 Year Estate Bottled Straight Rye Whiskey is not one of those whiskies. As the careful observer will read on the back of the bottle, this whiskey was produced in Indiana by Midwest Grain Producers, and bottled at the cask's strength of 55% ABV by Willett (ABV may vary by cask).
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
