The world’s Rye Whiskey powerhouse releases its own award-winning Straight Rye.

George Ross founded Rossville Distillery in 1847. Aside from a brief switch to industrial production during Prohibition, it has been producing fine Spirits continuously since then. Through a series of mergers and acquisitions it has been owned by Seagram’s, Pernod Ricard, and others over the years. But since 2011 it has been the flagship of MGP — one of the largest producers of Whiskey, Gin, and other Spirits. 

The Rossville Union line of Rye Whiskies is named after the original distillery in Lawrenceburg. Rossville Union Mater Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey is the first release, created from just 159 barrels of two core mash bills from the MGP line-up. The first is 95% rye and 5% malted barley to deliver a nice Rye kick. The second is a 51% rye, 45% corn, and 4% malted barley to provide a balance of sweetness. The blend is well-balanced, aged five to seven years in new oak, and bottled at a very nice 47% ABV.

Ratings & Reviews
Joshua
Joshua,
Great flavor. This was my first bottle after joining. I'm starting to realize I love rye and caramel notes. Great Indiana rye.
 
Josh
Josh,
Very thick and oily mouthfeel compared to other whisky at this proof level. Certainly a milder rye than some others I've had resulting a more smooth and enjoyable sipper neat. Great for an old fashioned or over an ice sphere if that's your preference. I would pass on another at the price considering I can get Michter's American for the same amount and there's no comparison between them in my eyes. It's good but not worth the price to me.

Stuart,
Fair amount of spice/heat that one cube of ice takes away. I prefer to have drinks near. This needs 15-20minutes to open up if you like it neat but then has some nice flavors. A great rotational drink

Not worth the price. Too peppery for me. Tried it sipping and in a cocktail, no luck.

Guy,
It has a great aroma right out of the bottle. A very smooth drinking rye whiskey that goes down very easy with not too much spice. Great for hot weather sipping out on the porch.
