Ri1 Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey



(rī)(pronounced rye one) is different than most rye whiskeys in the respect that it is considerably lighter in all aspects. When we think of rye we typically look for a robust, rich whiskey with some spice but all of those profiles are softer in (rī)1 with the exception of the spice, which in here is slightly snappier and brighter. Traditional rye fans will probably not enjoy the (rī)1 experience, however for those used to Canadian whisky or looking for a lighter bourbon-like whiskey that retains the rich grains this is a very nice alternative. 


Very sweet, citrus aroma with grainy background. Has an extremely smooth entry that leads to a dry, sunny sweet and sour palate with spicy notes and a very light rye. The finish is long and continuously sweet with very light spice throughout.


Ri1 Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey shines when paired with dishes that have a hint of sweetness to complement its spicy character. Consider BBQ ribs with a slightly sweet glaze or roasted duck with a berry compote. For a cheese pairing, aged gouda or a creamy blue cheese would provide a delightful contrast to the whiskey's spicy notes.
