A spectacular Willett's small batch Rye.

The Willett Family has a long Whiskey-making history stretching batch into the 1700s. The family has been in and out of the distillery business for well over two-hundred years. In 1936 they formed an independent bottling business — quite successfully. Prior to 2012 they were hand-selecting casks from the Kentucky Bourbon Distillers inventory for their releases. Since then, Willett Whiskies are made from new-make spirit coming from their newly renovated distillery — opened in 2012 — and appropriately called the Willet Distilling Company. They deliver no fewer than a dozen varieties.

Willett Family Estate Small Batch 2YO Rye is the fulfillment of a dream. It’s the first product made from 100% Willet Distillery spirit in over 30 years, so cheers to the Willett! It is a powerful straight Rye Whiskey aged two years and bottled at a cask-strength 54.7% ABV — delivering tons of spice and a fresh Whiskey profile. It also means that it is a great Whiskey for a classic Manhattan, Old Fashioned, or other Rye-based cocktails.
