Bardstown Bourbon Company Origin Series Rye
Bardstown Bourbon Company Origin Series Rye is a rye whiskey produced by Bardstown Bourbon Company. It is part of the distillery’s core lineup, and is aged for 6 years before being bottled at 96 proof.
It is aged in custom barrels that are constructed with alternating toasted American oak and toasted cherry wood staves, which “creates a wholly unique flavor unlike anything seen in the rye category,” according to the distillery.
The whiskeys in the Origin Series were all distilled and aged at the company’s Bardstown, KY campus. “The Origin Series is the first opportunity to taste an expression that is 100 percent our whiskey,” said Dan Callaway, VP of Product Development for Bardstown Bourbon Company.
The Origin Series was announced following the discontinuation of the Fusion Series, which used Bardstown-distilled whiskey as a component of blends that also included sourced whiskey.
Ripe cherry resonates through toasted oak highlighted by white flower, dill, and cinnamon. A rich, round mouthfeel bursts with fruit flavor leading to a one-of-a-kind sublime finish.
