Bold, unapologetic, and deliciously vibrant—a Whiskey that knows how to make a statement.
Back in the middle of the 19th Century, when the Civil War ended, the Ripy Bros returned from the battlefields to their hometown of Lawrenceburg. They picked the slopes of Wild Turkey Hill as a place for their new distillery. It was closed for a short period during Prohibition, and in 1954, it started operating under the guardianship of Jimmy Russell, the 'Buddha of Bourbon'. Through the ages, Jimmy passed down his wisdom to his prodigious son, Eddie. Like a sponge, Eddie absorbed every tradition, every technique, and every touch of craft from his revered father. With mastery in his grasp and a spark of originality in his heart, Eddie birthed Russell's Reserve—a Bourbon that encapsulates the very essence of their shared fervor.
Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Straight Rye is here to shatter the American single barrel scarcity myth. Each hand-picked barrel of this Kentucky straight rye Whiskey is unleashed at a mighty 104 proof, fearlessly defying the chill-filtering process. It's vibrant color and divine flavor, derived from the majestic No. 4 alligator char barrels, remains untainted. You’re in for a robust rye that strikes a balance between the fiery embrace of peppery heat, the smooth allure of vanilla, and the smoky embrace of tobacco flavors.
