Private Reserve Rye - Double Barreled

Private Reserve Whiskey – Fans of the private reserve, red label, aged-rye will be sure to love our Private Reserve Rye.

Like our White Rye and Aged Rye, it’s made in a historically accurate 26-gallon custom still. It’s then aged in a previously used barrel for eight months and then transferred to a second used barrel for 12 months. The result is an extra level of smoothness usually found in a much more mature spirit.

Private Reserve Whisky

Double barrel whiskey (or double cask whiskey) is a red rye premium “top-shelf” class of red rye whiskey in which each bottle comes from individual aged barrels,  instead of coming from blending together the contents of various ingredients to provide uniformity of color and taste.
