In the 1700s and 1800s, Rye was the number one spirit in America, and for good reason: Rye grain was plentiful, and it made damn good whiskey. But with the enactment of Prohibition and the closing of Rye distilleries, its usage declined. Now, following decades of discreet existence, there is a renaissance in the Rye category as craft cocktail bartenders and consumers alike rediscover its bold, spicy character. Redemption’s award-winning whiskey is produced in small batches for those who appreciate a nod to the past but have a taste for what’s new.
Redemption Whiskey is carefully hand-crafted in the river town of Lawrenceburg, Indiana at the 172-year-old MGP Distillery – Whisky Advocate’s 2015 Distiller of the Year. While Redemption is perfect to enjoy neat or on the rocks, it also serves as an excellent base when used in both classic and modern cocktails. Its bold, spicy notes shine through any cocktail without overpowering the drink. Redemption is a brand with one purpose and one purpose only: to bring Rye whiskey back to its rightful place.
