Rye Whiskey

Rye whiskey is distilled from at least 51% rye mashbill (the rest can be corn, barley, wheat, or any other grain in any combination), and aged in charred new oak barrels. It can be produced anywhere in the world, but most notably ryes come from America and Canada. If the whiskey is aged for at least two years, it can be called straight rye whiskey. In general, rye whiskeys are lighter than bourbons and have a distinctive spicy character.
