Situated in the heart of bluegrass and thoroughbred farms, the historic Woodford Reserve Distillery, one of Kentucky’s oldest and smallest, carries a legacy dating back to 1812. Guided by history and modern expertise, Woodford Reserve offers a range of flavorful whiskeys, each showcasing distinct characteristics. The distillery’s unique features include gravity-fed barrel runs, copper pot stills, ancient cypress wood fermenters, and a heat-cycled barrelhouse that contributes to the renowned color and flavor of Woodford Reserve.
Woodford Reserve Kentucky Style Rye uses a pre-prohibition style ratio of 53% rye in its mash bill to pay homage to history’s original rye whiskeys, making spice and tobacco the dominant note among a sea of fruit, floral, and sweet aromatics, which yields a nice sweetness and overall balance.
