ROCK TOWN ARKANSAS RYE WHISKEY
Rock Town Arkansas Rye Whiskey is a premium small batch rye whiskey distilled, aged and bottled at our distillery in Little Rock, Arkansas. We take pride in the fact that we grow our own Rye in Northeast Arkansas.
As with all our whiskies, our Rye Whiskey is made from grain to glass right here at the distillery in Little Rock. We’re makers not fakers.
Beginning with batch 12 we changed the mash bill from 88% rye and 12% malted barley, to 52% rye, 38% corn and 10% malted barley. The rye grain and the corn are grown in Arkansas. Like all our whiskeys, non-chill filtered.
94/100 – Jim Murray’s 2019 Whisky Bible
“The rye is so well defined and fruity! You could cut diamonds with this…; salivating, the rye works on both a crisp and fruity level despite the obvious oils around; intricate spices and subtle vanilla and chocolate; the oils do kick on slightly, but the marriage of castor sugar and juicy rye is built to last; Arkansas is slowly becoming a major rye destination: this is excellent! Better, in fact, than some ryes made by the established distilleries of Kentucky.”
95.5/100 – Jim Murray’s 2017 Whisky Bible
“The nose will give any rye lover a serious hard on, as the effect of the grain is entirely maxed out, leaving the sugars to fill in the cracks only. The delivery, likewise, is so full of that grain’s unique fruity character, one can only swoon. Brilliant!”
