A classic Rye from the first legal Whiskey distillery in Houston, Texas.

You know how you get all these great ideas when you're having a drink with your buddies? The kinds that involve quitting your boring old day job and reaching for something greater? Most of those grand schemes never see the light of day. The one that came to a group of friends in the heart of Houston, Texas, became Yellow Rose Distilling. The first legal Whiskey distillery in Houston became operational in 2010, named after a folk heroine and nestled smack dab in the middle of the city. Since the launch of their first product in 2012, their juice has brought home several awards, with Yellow Rose opening a tasting room and expanding considerably over the years.

It all begins with unique Texas soil and climate. Seeking out the best local corn, rye, and barley, they whip up a sweet mash, fermenting it into distiller's Beer that they double-distill using a copper-pot still. Once the juice goes into their charred oak barrels, they let the unique Houston heat and humidity work their magic for 4 years. Their small-batch Rye Whiskey uses a mash bill of 95% rye and harkens back to pre-Prohibition times. With its deliciously classic profile, it's equally at home on its lonesome or in a cocktail.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
There's a pleasant sweetness that greets the nose with brown sugar. It's quickly joined by gentle vanilla and pine forest notes, a floral touch, and pepper and spice as well.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The light sweetness on the palate evokes maple syrup, along with pepper, and a touch of mint.

Finish
The finish is medium with a gentler, toned down spice, a touch of heat, and some earthiness.

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.
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.
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.
