Harry Publiker founded Rittenhouse back in 1934. Rittenhosue Rye is a straight Rye Whiskey that used to be produced in Maryland, but now comes out of the Heaven Hill Distillery in Kentucky.
It is targeted at the mid-market, and has won significant awards. Bottled-in-bond at 50% ABV, Rittenhouse has a classic Rye spice on the nose and on the palate. It is a strong Whiskey, ideally served with a splash of water.
