Product Details

Rye Whiskey
Kentucky, United States

Product Description

The One and Only New Orleans Original. Sazerac Rye Whiskey symbolizes the tradition and history of New Orleans. Rye Whiskey dates back to the 1800's, around the time when saloons, veiled as Coffee Houses, began lining the streets of New Orleans. It was at the Sazerac Coffee House on Royal Street where local patrons were served toddies made with Rye Whiskey and Peychaud's Bitters. The libation became known as the "Sazerac" and America's first branded cocktail was born. This is the whiskey that started it all.

    Back in the early 1970s, I spent a year or so drinking Old Overholt almost daily. Hadn't had a rye in decades, then I decided to try Sazerac, because I wanted to try a Sazerac cocktail, and if you're not going original... Anyway - I'm still waiting for the absinthe for the Sazerac cocktail, but this has renewed my interest in rye, and I look forward to keeping it on my shelf.

    My preferred rye for an old fashioned. From the Buffalo Trace distillery.

    Hard to find; but excellent rye. Full bodied but not harsh!

    rye was good and having it delivered to the door was great


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.
