A high-rye Bourbon you can't go wrong with.

Hand crafted in Owensboro, Kentucky, Shady Mile Whiskey is named after a point on the county road where bootleggers used to meet. When business was done, they would share a sip of the finest Kentucky Whiskey to seal the deal. Created as a family-owned brand, Shady Mile Bourbon came to be to offer a great approachable Bourbon at an affordable price. Mission: accomplished.

Shady Mile High Rye Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey was created in collaboration with the Master Distiller at Green River Distilling Co. This is a high rye Bourbon with a mash bill of 21% Kentucky rye, 70% corn, made with Kentucky limestone filtered water. This is a very approachable Bourbon with bold and warm caramel flavors that are really hard not to love. It won Gold at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Silver at the same prestigious competition a year later.

Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
