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.
