Redemption Rye is a small batch rye with a mash bill of 95% premium rye grain, aged in new charred oak barrels to achieve its amber color and smooth flavor.
Redemption Rye Whiskey
The U.S. Government Standards require “rye whiskey” to be made from a mash of at least 51% rye grain. Redemption Rye uses a mash of 95% premium rye grain for a spicy and bold flavor. The U.S. Government Standards also require that rye whiskey be aged in “new charred oak barrels” which means that new oak barrels are burned on the inside, and it’s from the charred wood and the expansion and contraction of the whiskey in and through the wood of the barrel through the seasons that whiskey gets its amber color and the flavor is smoothed. Redemption bottles in small batches that allow them to leave the whiskey in the barrels longer for the most flavor and color. They empty the barrels and filter for particles, cut it down to 92 proof, and bottle it immediately so that the most flavor from the barrel makes it into the bottle. Then, each bottle is marked with the batch and bottle number by hand. Finally, the bottles are packed into cases and shipped around the country, and that’s the Redemption Rye process.
