A powerful old-school Rye Whiskey with a rich mouth feel and classic flavor profile done right.

Three Oaks, Michigan is a small town of about fifteen-hundred at the southwestern-most tip of the state. If it were a mile or two further south it would be in Indiana. Journeyman Distillery is located there and bills itself as a working-man’s shop. The building was a buggy whip and corset manufacturer back in the 1800s, and it is this history that influences the names of their twenty-two products — from Featherbone Bourbon to Buggy Whip Wheat and beyond.

George Washington has a special place in the history of America and the world. He had the opportunity to seize power twice, but put his country first — famously saying, "I am not a king." Well, not only was he the first President of the United States, he was also a distiller of Rye Whiskey. So it seems totally fitting that the good folks at Journeyman Distillery would pay homage to the man by crafting a Rye Whiskey in his honor. Not a King Rye is a limited edition Whiskey released each year on President’s Day. This powerful and tasty dram is 60% organic rye and 40% organic corn and 100% awesome at 45% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
After Napoleon emerged victorious during the French Revolution he seized power — making himself dictator and trying to conquer all of Europe. Afterward, he is said to have lamented, "They wanted me to be another Washington."

Ratings & Reviews
Love EVERYTHING from Journeyman- this rye is possibly my favorite
I found this absolutely delicious. Just the right hint of a peppery, woodsy pine oil flavor, with a smooth texture. Very happy I tried this. Adding to one of my "go to" bottles for sure.
Terrible. The best thing is the bottle. It tastes like chemicals...paint thinner comes to mind. It doesn’t burn, just tastes like chemicals. Definitely the worst bottle I’ve had, and not worth the $50 price tag.
I had a bottle that tasted like this that was mailed to me directly from the distillery. The odd thing? I've gotten a bottle in person from them before that was amazing. I don't get it.
We live 30 miles from the distillery. This is their top of the line and it beats the pants off spirits that sell for 3x the price.
Nice subtly spicy rye. medium finish. Smells just like the taste. Very nice pour.
