A true New Yorker Rye Whiskey.

John Curtis & Rich Sicari are Spirits icons of New York State Capital. Just a shout away from an 18th century Rum distillery by the Hudson River, their Albany Distilling Company is the first distillery in the region since the Prohibition. They’re reviving the rich heritage of their State and pushing themselves to create new and bold expressions. The Spirits-making establishment was founded in 2011 and they source their inspiration from innovation and invincible spirit of New Yorkers. All of the ingredients are grown in the Empire State, of course.

Their Ironweed Rye Whiskey is mashed, fermented, distilled, matured and bottled on-site. It's matured in new charred American oak barrels, and there's no fakery involved. Just an honest-to-god barrel-aged Rye Whiskey. This expression won the American Craft Spirits Association gold medal mere three years after the distillery itself was even opened. What this Rye's holding inside isn't just sweet and fruity flavors; it's the tradition and innovation of rebellious moonshiners and smugglers. What it has is that proper NY grit.

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.
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.
