With a Rebel Bourbon, you’ll cry "more, more, more!" 
 
The story goes that Billy Idol was doing shots with the Rolling Stones at a party. Keith Richards just loved him some hard liquor and he was fond of Rebel Bourbon — he’s the one who brought the bottle. Billy liked the name and asked the gents if he could borrow it for a song title (Rebel Yell). If you are a music fan like we are, that’s reason enough to buy it right there.

The original Rebel Bourbon Whiskey was made by the W. L. Weller & Sons Company. And though that distillery popped into existence in 1849, it wasn’t until the mid-1900s that they started bottling American Whiskeys under the Rebel Bourbon brand. Anyway, the name was passed around from company to company for a bit, garnering awards left and right, their Wheated Bourbon proving a hit. Since the early 1980s, the label has been lovingly tended to by American Whiskey-lover David Sherman’s beverage company, Luxco.
 
But Rebel Small Batch Rye Whiskey is a real solid Spirit — chock-full of flavor and spice. But it’s not "punch you in the face with pepper" spice like a lot of Johnny-come-lately brands. It’s more like "kissing a southern girl wearing cinnamon lip gloss" kind of spicy. And at a healthy 45% ABV, we think that this little rebel will make one heck of a bodacious Manhattan

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.
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.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
