Collection Features Redemption’s First-Ever Cask Strength Bourbon and High Rye Bourbon.
Following limited-edition releases in December 2015, Redemption Whiskey, is expanding the portfolio with its first-ever cask strength Bourbon and High Rye Bourbon bottlings. Owned by Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits, Redemption Whiskey, known for producing rye and bourbon that are distinctive for the highest quality aging and blending techniques, introduces three new limited-edition expressions in the Aged Barrel Proof Collection: Straight Rye Whiskey (Aged 8 years), Straight Bourbon (Aged 9 years) and High Rye Bourbon (Aged 9 years).
The Redemption Aged Barrel Proof selections are distilled from mash bills of rye, barley and corn: Straight Rye (95% rye, 5% barley), Bourbon (75% corn, 21% rye, 4% barley), and High Rye Bourbon (60% corn, 36% rye, 4% barley). The expressions have been aged between 8-9 years in charred new oak barrels, and after proper aging, each whiskey is minimally filtered and bottled immediately at full proof. The combination of high rye content and high proof in each expression ensure consistent flavor in each batch. All three whiskies were awarded Double Gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2016.
The Redemption Aged Barrel Proof Collection will be available in top U.S. markets and includes:
