Five & 20’s signature Rye Whiskey jumps two levels of fruit with the Port finished casks.

The Mazza Family has been in the Spirits business in the US Northeast since 1972. The Mazza Vineyard and Mazza Winery have been staples to locals along the New York / Pennsylvania boarder. In 2005 they needed more space and started construction of a new facility along Route 20 in Upstate New York on the shore of Lake Erie, but with an eye to future expansion. The brewery and distillery were outfitted in 2015 — transforming them into a Spirits-making trifecta.

Five & 20 Port Finish Rye Whiskey begins with their signature Rye Whiskey — 80% New Yor rye and 20% New York malted barley — aged for eighteen months in extra small new oak casks. The difference comes in how it is finished in first-fill American Port casks. Actually, "finished" is the wrong word because it sits in those Port casks for longer than it does in the normal one — a full 30 months. This means that a normally fruit-forward Rye levels up with new notes of fresh berries. And this gem is bottled at a wonderful 49.5% ABV so you can taste it is all its glory.

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.
