Product description

Masterfully Malted. Perfectly Spiced. Basil Hayden Malted Rye is the latest permanent expression from Basil Hayden. It is a unique take on rye whiskey that delivers an unexpected softness and approachability when compared to other rye products on the market. While Basil Hayden bourbon is characterized by a higher percentage of rye that typically creates a spicier character, this expression leverages a malting process that transforms the rye grain to deliver a more subtle mellow spice with a delicate sweet and floral note. Bottled at 80 proof Malted rye offers a well-rounded lighter approachable and refined taste profile. Bottled at 80 proof and 40% ABV, the 100% malted rye mash bill imparts a delicate floral aroma and soft notes of vanilla and toasted rye bread, with a light finish of chocolate and warm spice Given the flavor profile of the liquid its approachability neat is recommended. It is best enjoyed as the “first sip of any occasion.”

Yes, whiskey is gluten-free, thanks to the distillation process used to make it. The Celiac Disease Foundation concluded that it can safely be considered gluten-free, though it’s still possible that some people with high gluten sensitivity or celiac disease could have a reaction to whiskeys created from certain grains.
Whiskey can include a large number of different distilled spirits made from fermented grain mash — usually cereal grains like rye, barley malt, wheat and corn. The drink undergoes aging in wooden containers, most often oak.
One of the reasons whiskey is so popular is that there’s no single way to enjoy it. There’s the purist route — straight and neat, no mixers, no ice — but what fun is being a purist? You can add water to it, which can enhance certain bottles’ flavors or you can add it with other ingredients to make delicious mixed drinks. It’s the foundation of the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and many others.
