Straight Rye Whiskey
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 45% / 90 Proof
A good quality straight rye American whiskey with a 51% Rye, 45% Corn, 4% Malted Barley mashbill, at 90 US proof (45%) this works well as a sipping whiskey and has enough punch to make its presence felt in Manhattan or Sazerac cocktails.
Ezra Brooks has a long association with Heaven Hill distillery, going back to the early 1990s when HH bought the brand and sold it to the David Sherman Corporation, later renamed Luxco, who still own the brand. As part of the deal, Heaven Hill agreed to supply whiskey for Ezra Brooks.
The increased popularity of American whiskey in the past decade or so put pressure on this arrangement and in response to the demand for their products - which also now include the Rebel Yell, David Nicholson and Blood Oath brands - Luxco built their own distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky. Lux Row Distillers began distilling operations in January 2018.
