Product description

We think anything worth doing is worth doing 100%… where most whiskey makers stick to the minimum 51% Rye, we are committed to long aging and countless barrel experiments that have led to the first 100% Rye perfected for sipping and mixing. Our Rye aged for six years taught us that it doesn’t take long to arrive at perfection. With a mashbill of 100% Rye to capture a 100% bold, spice flavor profile. PiggyBack’s unique strength of precisely 96.56 proof is the optimal match in the strength-sweet-bitter cocktail triangle, making it a bartender’s dream. Stir or shake as you choose. 93 Points from Wine Enthusiast. Certified Kosher. NOSE: Fresh cinnamon, black peppercorn, a hint of tangerine and grapefruit zest PALATE: Powerfully spicy, with cocoa, cardamom and cured leather flavors FINISH: Wonderfully lengthy, with baking spices, vanilla and hints of citrus

FAQs

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.
