Bringing prohibition and originality back to Bourbon. 
 
One of the first distilleries and producers of Whiskey in the United States dating back to, unsurprisingly, 1776 and grew into one of the most popular drinks in the 19th century and stayed as such until it fell from grace in the mid 20th century. But that has all changed, in the last few years the brand has seen a revival and is back in the spotlight again for all the right reasons. 
 
To create this renaissance of sorts, the new owners, Georgetown Trading Co. have spent ages going through the archives to recreate the pre, mid and post prohibition recipes that made the 1776 so iconic. This release is straight Bourbon made with 90% rye and bottled at proof strength of 50%.

Pretty good rye. Runs a tad hot. Brief butterscotch on the tongue. Still prefer George Dickel over this but it’s a respectable sipping rye. Would buy it again.

Greg,
A mighty fine rye whiskey from the home of bourbon that drinks smooth and especially enjoys a splash of water. Reasonably priced. One of my go to whiskeys for an evening repose with a good book.

Craig,
Picked this bottle up on a business trip, I love Rye and though I knew nothing of the brand, had never even seen it before the price made trying it a no-brainer. Wow was I pleasantly surprised. I really liked it at first sip but a few days later, after the bottle had been opened and it breathed a little it was truly incredible. I kept sipping and saying to myself there’s no way it can be this good! Best $30 bottle I’ve bought in a very long time.

Nicholas,
1776 Rye cannot be beaten at its price point. Hell, a lot of much more expensive ryes can't compare. The company has been in the game for a while and it shows. 1776 is rich, spicy, but not too sweet. It's great straight, on the rocks, or as the base for a beautiful old fashioned.
