What Is Premium Rye Whiskey?

Generally, “rye whiskey” is a loose term that refers to whiskey made from a grain mash that contains a higher-than-usual proportion of rye. Rye whiskey made in the USA must be made from a mash that is at least 51% rye. Canadian whiskey is often referred to as rye whiskey regardless of the amount of rye it contains because rye was historically used to make the spirit in Canada.

Where Does Rare Rye Whiskey Come From?

Rye whiskey, unlike scotch and bourbon, can come from any country or region. It’s mostly produced in North America, specifically the United States and Canada. Pittsburgh, PA, has long been known as the central city of the rye distilling industry, but the spirit is made and consumed in cities and towns around the world.

How Is Premium Rye Whiskey Made?

According to its strictest definition, rye whiskey is made from a grain mash containing at least 51% rye. The grain mash is first fermented, then distilled (with a maximum ABV of 80%), and finally aged in charred oak barrels. Straight rye whiskey has another requirement—it must be aged for at least two years and be bottled in single batches (never blended). 

How Many Calories Are In Rey Whiskey? 

A single 1.5-ounce serving of rye whiskey contains around 100 calories.  

How Much Sugar Is In Rye Whiskey? 

The fermentation process (wherein sugars are converted to alcohol) means that rye whiskey contains virtually zero sugar. 

What Are The Different Types of Premium Rye Whiskey? 

Rye whiskey is less strictly regulated and defined than, say, scotch or bourbon, but it can still be sorted into a few distinct types.

American rye

Canadian rye

Dark rye

Straight rye

Double rye

One featured option in the realm of rare rye whiskey is the Sazerac Rye. Hailing from San Francisco, this permanent super premium rye delivers an unrivaled experience. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail by the Wild Turkey family, Sazerac Rye embodies the essence of Kentucky straight rye whiskey. Each sip reveals the harmonious blend of a rare breed rye and a carefully selected barrel, resulting in a flavor profile that is both bold and sophisticated.

What Is The Difference Between Premium Rye Whiskey and Bourbon? 

Bourbon and rye are sort of like whiskey cousins—they share many qualities but not the exact same DNA. They differ in a couple of important ways.

The grain mash

According to United States regulations, the grain mash of rye whiskey must be comprised of at least 51% rye, and the grain mash of bourbon whiskey must be comprised of at least 51% corn. 

The region of origin

Bourbon must be made in the United States in order to be considered bourbon. Rye whiskey can come from any country or region (so if you find yourself abroad, consider sampling their version of this spicy spirit!).

What Are The Top Premium Rye Whiskey Brands? 

Barbank carries all the most beloved rye brands, including Jack Daniels, Knob Creek, Dicken, High West, Michter’s, Redemption, Sagamore Spirit, Basil Hayden, Angel’s Envy, Wild Turkey Distillery, Buffalo Trace and more. 

What Mixes Well With Rye Whiskey? 

Rye whiskey mixes particularly well with citrus juices, sweet vermouth, bitters, ginger ale, ginger beer, and soda water.

What Are Some Popular Drinks You Can Make With Premium Rye Whiskey? 

Rye makes a perfect base spirit for a wide variety of cocktails.

The Toronto

Combine rye whiskey (usually Canadian in origin, hence the cocktail’s name), Fernet, simple syrup, and bitters, then serve in a chilled cocktail glass.

Vieux Carre

Named for the New Orleans French Quarter (where it was invented), the Vieux Carre is appropriately boozy with rye, cognac, sweet vermouth, and Benedictine in the mix.

The Brooklyn

Rye, dry vermouth, maraschino liqueur, and bitters combine to create a cosmopolitan treat.


Another New Orleans innovation, this classic cocktail marries rye and absinthe with sugar and bitters.
