Riverset Rye

Basic Info

Riverset Rye is rich in flavor with hints of cinnamon, allspice, and vanilla blended with notes of brown sugar and dark fruits. Riverset Rye is great in cocktails but smooth enough for neat sipping. We age our barrels along the winding bluffs of the Mississippi River in Memphis, Tennessee. The Delta heat and humidity provided by the long, hot summers cook our barrels low and slow like proper Memphis BBQ. This forces the whiskey deep into the oak, creating an unmistakably rich flavor. Riverset is named in honor of the Mississippi River and the iconic riverboats that have long since navigated its waters. Historically, these riverboats were used to transport cumbersome barrels of whiskey from the hinterlands to the cities. In fact, so much whiskey was transported on the river in the nineteenth century that the Mississippi became known as the 'Whiskey River.'
