A good ol’ classic rye promises more bang for your buck.

Ezra Brooks, conceived and forged in Kentucky, has been making happy hours happier with bona fide American Bourbon since the King sang about loving too much (it's 1957). The brand was created by Frank Silverman in Lawrenceburg until the business went under in the 1970s. In 1993, Luxco reanimated the beloved Whiskey-maker and moved it to Lux Row Distillers in Bardstown. The amber Spirit is born in a 43-foot custom copper still and it ends up in new charred oak barrels at 125 Proof max. Although its older brothers boast about tradition, Ezra Brooks had a couple of cameos in Hollywood: there's a billboard in The Sting with Newman and Redford, while Gary Oldman grabs a bottle of Ezra Brooks in Léon. It's a true American star with real roots.

Talking about excellent classics, this Ezra Brooks Straight Rye joined the beloved American Bourbon family in early 2017. The bottle alone gives off old fashioned, traditional Whiskey vibes with its matte, green label. A 100% genuine Whiskey with a mash bill of 51% rye, 45% corn and 4% malt, it's bottled at an honest 90 proof. A real straight shooter, you might say. Bringing you hints of chocolate, leather, vanilla and spicy grains, what you see is what you get with this award-winning, classic rye. And that's a good thing. Aged in new, charred American oak, it's a predictable, dependable and pleasant rye with slightly sweet and oaky notes. Not unlike like your favorite pair of American jeans that you'd take anywhere with you.

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.
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!
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.
