Virginia’s Fighting Spirit

Bare Knuckle Straight Rye Whiskey



Bare Knuckle Straight Rye Whiskey

Bare Knuckle Straight Rye Whiskey is made 100% rye, sourced from local Virginia farms. It is double-distilled and aged in charred new American White Oak barrels from Kentucky. Look for the handwritten age statement on the back of each bottle. Our first bottling runs were aged 17-18 months.

ABV: 45% (90 PROOF)

Tasting Notes

Bare Knuckle Straight Rye Whiskey is strikingly smooth. It has the traditional rye notes of spice and pepper, with a subtle caramel sweetness mellowed by notes of oak from the barrel.

How to Drink

Bare Knuckle Straight Rye Whiskey is outstanding neat, on the rocks, or as the foundation for any classic Rye cocktail. We recommend a Sazerac, Manhattan, or Old Fashioned.

Cask Strength

Bare Knuckle Straight Rye Whiskey Single Barrel Cask Strength is made with 100% rye, sourced from local Virginia farms.  It is double-distilled, aged for at least 2 years in a single charred new American White Oak barrel, and bottled directly from the barrel, without dilution.  This spirit can range from ~118 to ~125 proof, and produces a wonderful depth of flavor and heat.

ABV: 118-125 PROOF

Tasting Notes

Bare Knuckle Straight Rye Whiskey Single Barrel Cask Strength has a beautiful bready flavor up front with notes of vanilla and cinnamon, similar to a sweet roll.  It finishes with rye pepper, spiciness, and heat from its higher proof.
