A mellow, sweeter, smoother Rye Whiskey that will make you think thoughts of autumn.

High Wire Distilling Company is Charleston’s first operating distillery since Prohibition. It was founded by serial entrepreneur and Culinary Institute of America trained baker Scott Blackwell and his wife Ann Marshall. They had worked side-by-side running a specialty bakery which they sold to General Mills in 2012. The next step for them was a venture into Spirits, when the husband-wife duo opened High Wire in 2013. And not only has the venture been successful with a slew of product releases based on a culinary approach, but in 2019 they were nominated for a James Beard Award — considered the top honor in the food industry — in the category of Outstanding Wine, Beer, or Spirits Professional category.

They like to use rare, local and heirloom ingredients in everything they produce at High Wire Distilling. So when they set out to produce a Rye Whiskey, they dug deep into the traditions and heritage of local farms. Abruzzi rye is originally from Italy. But it was an early seed import to the South and was a primary grain source for centuries before hybridization and optimization boosted the yield of lesser grains. New Southern Revival Rye Whiskey is 75% Abruzzi rye and 25% heirloom corn and bottled at 45% ABV. This gives it a unique palate that is warm with the spice you are looking for without blowing the doors off… which we think is a very good thing.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile has less bite and more warming spice with another dose of roasting nuts and s’mores.

Finish
The finish is medium length, warm, and a little sweet.

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.
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.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
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.
Founder Scott Blackwell has a background in wholesome quality products, and entrepreneurship, selling his former business, a natural and organic bakery called Immaculate Baking Company, to industry giant General Mills.
High Wire was a James Beard Award finalist in 2019 for outstanding Wine, Spirits or Beer producer.
