Two James Catcher's Rye Whiskey is 49.4% ABV and 100% Motown.

Two James is the brainchild of David Landrum and Peter Bailey — two friends and longtime residents of Detroit, Michigan. They opened their Two James Distillery in 2011 and released their first spirit in 2013. The “Two James’” in this case appear to be the father’s of the founders — and we think that’s pretty cool. But they are remarkably silent on the details of that. In any event, Two James Distillery is the first distillery in Detroit since Prohibition and they now produce ten core products, from Bourbon to Gin and from Vodka to Rye.

If you are a fan of mid-century literature, Two James Catcher's Rye Whiskey is quite the pun — an obvious reference to J.D. Salinger’s famous novel “Catcher in the Rye.” If you are a fan of beautiful packaging, you will appreciate the lovely decanter that is both modern and old-timey in appearance. The spirit itself is made from local Michigan Rye grain and — even though there is no official age statement — our sources say it’s aged two years in new charred 53 gallon casks. It pours at a very respectable 49.4% ABV and is a fresh and youthful-tasting effort.

Ratings & Reviews
Justin
Justin,
I'm not a big fan of the charred / clove taste. It reminds me of absinthe or licorice for some reason. Seems like a quality spirit, just hits the wrong flavor profile for me when it comes to rye. As a reference, my go to is Whistlepig, but I'd take a Bulleit, Templeton, or George Dickel over this when it comes to commonly found Ryes. Mostly I drink Ryes that are local to the midwest (MN, MI, and WI), but these are often hard to found outside of the area.

Tasted like gasoline

Ryan,
Over-powered by char, otherwise lacks complexity. Drinkable, but you can do better at this price point.

Michael,
Great taste but just too much burn. Given the flavor I have no idea why they decided to put so much burn into this.

Ok, kinda tastes like chapstick...

Peter,
Very nice Rye. Crisp, finishes clean. Good mouth feel. Taste of spice and a little fruit. Just enough bite at the finish. I preferred it three fingers with a single small ice cube. I will buy this again.

I loved the smooth cooling taste with the hint of fruity nature

Good Rye! Apple/Vanilla on the nose and a nice spicy/sweet taste . Very smooth . I could drink it neat all day !

Adam,
I've made it to this Distillery the last time I was in Detroit. Remarkable whiskey, the spice plays off the rye incredibly.

Best Rye whiskey I have had. Much much better than the well known Templeton Rye
