At the end of the rainbow, you'll find a bottle of Whiskey.

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 five and nine years, with some of the juice being aged in 1 year old Bourbon barrels and Hoffmeister barrels for selective additional aging. 


 
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.

A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
