The Reasons Rye

Everyone loves a good comeback story. Before Prohibition, rye whiskey was at the height of its popularity. In fact, due to its spicy and bold flavor profile, it was the primary whiskey used in cocktails. It even inspired more famous classics like the Manhattan. Yes, brothers and sisters, rye was on top.

But as the story goes, Prohibition forced distilleries to rush their aging and blend their liquids, leaving Americans with a taste for lighter flavors. And much like bourbon at that time, rye was left out in the cold.

Luckily for us, things are warming up. The resurgence of bolder flavors and the popularity of the U.S. craft cocktail scene have finally put rye back in the spotlight. Bartenders across the country love what the unique spicy flavor of Knob Creek® Rye Whiskey brings to cocktails, old and new. But don’t take our word for it. Our new recipe section features a number of cocktails featuring the bold, spicy flavor of our rye. So don’t be shy.
