Carpe Cupam (Seize the Whiskey)! 

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.

A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
In 1996, more than 90,000 barrels, and one of their production buildings were destroyed in a fire. That's almost 24 million bottles-worth of premium American Whiskey. Rivers of flaming spirit were flowing in and around the distillery.
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.
Heaven Hill is a well respected distillery, even amongst their competitors. After the fire of 1996, the local major distilleries Jim Beam and Brown Forman shared their stills with Heaven Hill while they rebuilt.
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.
