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%.

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.
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.
