Character Goatson
Buffalo Bill’s libation.
 
From the birthplace of the extraordinary U.S. showman William “Buffalo Bill” Cody, Le Claire in Iowa hails this microdistillery Mississippi River Distilling that lays on the banks of the river Mississippi. Put together the idea to recreate the same Rye Whiskey as Buffalo Bill would want to drink, Rye sourced from Illinois and dedication from two brothers and you get yourself a piece of American dream. Started just back in 2010 Burchett brothers are hands on on experimentation and learning from each batch to get the next one one step further.
 
Cody Road Rye is aged in half-sized barrels to maximize the impact of oak and is made from 100% Rye mash sourced from the Wherry Brothers farm who grow it in Fulton, Illinois. They focus on the value of fresh grains from farms within a half hour’s drive of the distillery. Distilled to honour one of America’s greatest heroes of the Wild West, this drop surely packs just that spiciness and free spirit, enjoy neat or mix in any cocktail that calls for Rye infusion!

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.
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 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.
