Pikesville has been a brand of Rye Whiskey off-and-on for more than 120 years. The original company was founded in Maryland in 1895, where it became a very popular brand of “Maryland-style” Rye Whiskey. Production has stopped several times over the decades due to Prohibition, ownership changes, and even distillery accidents. The historic “Majestic Distilling” ceased production in 1972, but the brand was continuously available until 1982 on existing stock. Heaven Hill recently purchased the brand, revitalized the recipe, and brought production to their Bernheim Distillery in Kentucky.

Pikesville is all about one product — Pikesville 110 Proof Straight Rye Whiskey. And yes, it’s served at nearly full cask strength at 110 proof / 55% ABV. Powerful and authentic to its roots, Whiskey experts from around the world are salivating in desire and gushing in praise. It’s an unanimous double-gold winner in San Francisco, received an “extraordinary, ultimate recommendation” at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, and was dubbed the “Second Finest Whiskey in the World” by Jim Murray at the Whiskey Bible, and a bunch more. Seriously… this could be the Rye Whiskey of the decade.

Best rye I’ve had in any price range

Olaf,
A strong body with a sharpness to it that I have come to love of rye. Very impressive drink that challenges much more pricey bottles of rye.
 
Ben
Ben,
Great all around Rye. 110 proof, but great any way you want to drink it. I take it backpacking (straight), and I like it in my manhattans.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
I like drinking ryes and this is a fine one. Maybe quite as good as not as the E.H Taylor rye but a solid expression. If you like Rittenhouse you’ll enjoy this one.
