It began in 1847 with a bold, satisfying taste that would make Indiana the rye capital of the world. For nearly 200 years, Lawrenceburg's master distillers and blenders have perfected the original handcrafted rye blends in one of America's last Prohibition-era distilleries. Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey is a tribute to the golden age of rye made by the Masters of Rye at MGP. Rossville Union Master Crafted Rye is blended to perfection from 159 barrels. This precisely crafted rye combines toffee, caramel and vanilla with bold rye spice to take classic cocktails to the next level.
The bold, fruit-spiked scent beckons. The palate is relatively dry, opening with a wallop of vanilla and finishing long with zingy cinnamon, allspice and a hint of red fruit. A judicious splash of water tames the rye bite but keeps the spice. Aged at least four years.
