Wilderness Trail Distillery has added rye whiskey to the award-winning selection of spirits from the craft distiller in Danville, KY. The distillery made one barrel of its cask-strength Settlers Select Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey sold in a collectors’ box available to the public at its visitors’ center earlier this month. Additional bottles without the collectors’ box have been made available to retailers.
According to the distillery, the whiskey has a mash bill of 56% rye, 33% corn and 11% malted barley and is aged in a #4 char barrel. The distillery plans to age their ryes 6-8 years like their bourbons, but also plans to release some cask-strength ryes (such as this one) as well.
