Character Goatson
An 1850s saloon. That’s where Sazerac first strode into the scene as a guns-a-blazin’ cocktail. And while it got its start as an imposing combo of Brandy, sugar and bitters, a feisty dose of Rye replaced the brandy making it the cocktail you know and love today.

Now, this 18-year-old straight Rye Whiskey is part of Buffalo Trace’s Antique collection. And the juice itself is really rare—some of the series can lose up to 70% of its liquid due to evaporation (you might recognize that as the Angel’s share). It’s a Rye we can picture John Wayne shootin’ back. A true American spirit.

Character Dogson
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.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
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.
The Buffalo Trace Distillery was one of the few production facilities that was allowed to remain in operation during Prohibition for "medicinal purposes."
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.
