A tasty Rye that’s mature well beyond its age.

Wood seems like a pretty important part of Whiskey making, right, but apparently, it doesn’t have to be. Or at least not in the way we’re used to, according to the co-founders of Silicon Valley-based Bespoken Spirits Stu Aaron and Martin Janousek who use technology to achieve perfection in Spirits. Their team of scientists developed a proprietary ACTivation technology, where "aroma, color, and taste" are extracted with "precision, control, and speed". This way, the Spirit is matured in days instead of years. Don’t worry, the process of instilling the barrel in the Spirit is completely natural and sustainable with no artificial colorings or additives. The profile of a Spirit is precisely tailored, which is great, but there are other benefits, too: "97% less wood consumption, 20% more Spirit yield (No angel’s share!), and most importantly, award-winning tastes."

Bespoken Spirits Rye Whiskey is aged with their innovative ACTivation technology that uses new charred American oak staves to instill distinct aromas, flavors, and colors into this tasty Rye. Mature well beyond its age, this one greets with rich aromas of caramel, vanilla, and spice that mingle with caraway, celery, and a mild smokiness. The palate is well-rounded and sweet with a peppery finish.

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.
In November of 2015, MGP announced its first ever house brand — Metze’s Select Indiana Straight Whiskey. It is a blend of their high-Rye Bourbons, named after the Master Distiller who retired that year. It is not yet available on the market.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
