Building on the brand’s whiskey offerings, the new rye is the first national release with liquid distilled at its brand-new Red Hook distillery
Widow Jane Distillery has announced the launch of Paradigm Rye, the latest addition to the Brooklyn-based distillery’s collection of small-batch whiskeys.
The release has been designed to challenge the long-held perceptions of rye whiskey for flavour profile and complexity, and is set to arrive on shelves nationally this summer.
Paradigm Rye is the first nationally available product from Widow Jane inclusive of whiskey distilled at the brand’s home on Conover Street in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
For the last five years, the Widow Jane team has laid down barrels of rye whiskey distilled in-house. With the earliest barrels having reached maturity, the New York whiskey has been expertly married with rye whiskeys meticulously hand-selected – just five barrels at a time – from Kentucky and Indiana. The resulting blend is a rye with familiar spice notes as well as the sweetness and mouthfeel characteristic of the finest bourbon. Paradigm Rye opens up with each sip when experienced neat, and serves as a robust base for classic cocktails.
Says Widow Jane head distiller & blender, Sienna Jevremov, “The goal with Paradigm is to reset the standard for great rye whiskey that spotlights equally the arts of distilling, blending, and finishing, which embodies what we do here at Widow Jane. Paradigm Rye follows the brand’s history of bringing an unusual, fruit forward profile in a rye, backed up with the spice that bartenders seek for cocktails.”
As is the case with all Widow Jane whiskeys, Paradigm Rye is non-chill filtered and proofed with pure limestone mineral water from the legendary Rosendale Mines of New York, just under 100 miles north of the distillery, which contributes to the round mouthfeel and exceptionally long finish. Paradigm Rye is bottled at 93 proof with an SRP of $49.99.
