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.

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.
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.
