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.
