A beautiful, classic high-rye devised into an experiment… literally for the ages.

The story of Pinhook Whiskey starts in 2014 with its first release. You see, each fall the folks in the newly restored Castle & Key Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, create a single batch of Bourbon and a single batch of Rye. Each release is named after a thoroughbred racehorse coming up in the Bourbon Lane Stables — the horse’s stats are even printed on the labels. So each issuance is a bit different, just like each racehorse is different. It’s a great story and they sell out every year. In 2016 they refurbished the Old Taylor Distillery (mothballed in 1972) and are now bottling their first completely in-house Spirits.

This is one of the coolest ideas EVER. Stay with us on this story… Pinhook has acquired a total of 950 Barrels of Rye Whiskey — 95% rye and 5% malted barley — distilled in Indiana in 2016. Each year they will take fifty casks for a special edition Rye Vertical Series release. If you get one bottle each year, you will follow the same batch of premium Rye Whiskey as it ages from four to twelve years in 2028.

Pinhook Tiz Rye Time just came out and it is the inaugural release — now four years old and bottled at 48.5% ABV. True to form, each release will be named after a thoroughbred race horse.

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 - 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.
