The most powerful Knob Creek Rye yet.

Knob Creek is one of the special "small batch" brands of Beam-Suntory. Along with it’s sister labels — Booker’s, Baker’s, and Basil Hayden’s — it’s tailored to the more discriminating Bourbon-lover (and that means YOU). The Knob Creek brand was first launched in 1992, and since then they have changed it very little — remaining dedicated to reproducing a pre-Prohibition style Bourbon experience with a higher ABV that makes it a Bourbon-of-Choice for discriminating cocktail aficionados everywhere while winning awards and turning heads.

We’ve always had a soft-spot for Knob Creek Whiskeys. They were high-proof cocktail-making gold long before the current trend of stronger drams took hold. And everything that we love about Knob Creek products is ramped up even higher with Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye Whiskey.

Knob Creek "normal" Straight Rye pours at a lovely 50% ABV. Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye Whiskey tips the scales at 59.8% ABV. The combination of proof-heat and Rye spice are powerful indeed. It’s nine years old, spending all that time in the famous "Warehouse A" — the oldest storage building at the Beam Distillery. And the first release won "Best Rye Whiskey" in San Francisco.

A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Interestingly, every master distiller at Heaven Hill Distillery since its founding, have also been members of the Beam Family.
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.
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.
Perhaps because of the family ties, when there was a serious fire at the Heaven Hill Distillery that seriously damaged production capacity, Jim Beam was one of two distilleries that graciously let their “friendly competitor” use some of their excess capacity, until repairs were completed.
