Kentucky’s Old Forester Distilling Co. has launched its Old Forester Rye Single Barrel. The expression marks the first innovation of the distiller’s rye recipe since the original 100 proof release, presented with nationwide availability at barrel strength in limited quantities.
Following on from the 2019 release of Old Forester Rye, there has been demand for a barrel strength iteration of the spirit and now it is finally here. Old Forester Rye was the first new recipe from Old Forester in nearly 150 years and has quickly become a staple expression for bartenders and consumers.
“The Old Forester Rye Single Barrel delivers on the same balanced and unique flavor profile of our 100-proof expression, only amplified and in unfiltered, raw form,” said master taster Zackie Zykan.
Old Forester Rye Single Barrel will be available starting June 1 at the retail shop at Old Forester Distilling Co. and nationwide for $79.99 in limited 750mL quantities.
