Bender’s Whiskey is located on Treasure Island — a man-made island in the San Francisco Bay. The distillery was founded by Carl Bender, who hired Christopher Cohen as their Master Blender. Chris spends his days assembling Rye Whiskey batches from across North America into their signature — and only — product.

Bender's Rye Whiskey was first released in 2013. Every batch is different, so Bender’s tastes a bit different from year to year. What they are pouring today is a high rye combination of Rye and Corn Whiskeys without the barley or wheat that some producers mix in. That means that you get spice and tang ‘a-plenty. Rye Whiskey has seen a huge increase in popularity, mainly due to the explosion of craft cocktails that use it as a base. Bender’s Rye will fit right in with its stout, peppery flavor and 45% ABV.

Bender's Rye Whiskey has been aged between seven and thirteen years, with some of the juice being aged in the Hoffmeister Barrels for additonal 14 months. 

 
Smartass corner: 
If you’ve been to San Francisco you know that there are two ways cross the bay: The Golden Gate Bridge and the Oakland Bay Bridge. The latter actually looks like it was assembled from the left over parts of 5 or 6 other bridges. The first “leg” of this bridge runs from downtown San Francisco to Treasure Island.

Brad
Brad,
Very good. You get apple in the nose. Apple and char on the palate. Short finish.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
All I really tasted was spice and vanilla. Was my least favorite of the 3 samples in the 2nd Generation Rye sampler.
 
Sean
Sean,
Wow! Absolutely delicious. Undeniable caramel brûlée flavors. This is a new Flaviorite!
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Definitely perfect for an old fashioned or manhattan. I would most likely enjoy it neat for desert after a meal.
 
Robert
Robert,
A little spicy. Quite sweet. Would balance with some bitters in an OF.
 
Amy
Amy,
LOVED this. Almost like a hot buttered rum — dessert-like for sure. Smooth and warm.
 
Scott
Scott,
Close but not cigar! The nose made me think I was about to sample a liqueur or something super sweet. As pleasant and the dominate notes are the finish ruins it for me. It's just too subtle. The sweetness has nothing to compliment it. Needs more character.
