A true blue American Rye Whiskey from a legendary distiller in a historic building.

Rhonda Kallman is a sharp, savvy businesswoman. She was a founding partner of The Boston Beer Company — famous for their Samuel Adams Boston Lager and Angry Orchard Hard Cider, among other beverages. She went on to found New Century Brewing. Her story was even featured in the 2009 movie "Beer Wars." And then in 2011 she founded Boston Harbor Distillery, building out her stills in a historic 1859 brick warehouse in the Harbor District where the team makes Whiskey, Rum, Liqueurs, and other Spirits.

Putnam New England Rye from Boston Harbor Distillery is made from 95% malted rye and 5% malted two-row barley. It’s re-distilled with a center-cut to bring the proof up to 155 (77.5% ABV) and placed in new, deeply-charred 200-liter barrels. It’s brought to a very pleasant 43% ABV with pure water from the local Quabbin Reservoir. As they say at the distillery, "… nothing says America more than Rye."

Smartass Corner:
With a history of Spirit-making in Boston, beginning with Samuel Adams Lager, Rhonda still has a patriotic bent. We’re not sure how she arranged it, but Boston Harbor Distillery owns a Vendome copper pot still that has the registered serial number "1776."

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.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
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.
