PEERLESS DISTILLING COMPANY, SINGLE BARREL KENTUCKY STRAIGHT RYE WHISKEY
It’s the oldest “new” whisky distillery you’ve heard of—but trust us, you’ll want to hop on the bandwagon! The first drop of Peerless whisky went into barrel in 1889, but the Kentucky distillery laid dormant for nearly 100 years during and after Prohibition. In 2015, fourth and fifth-generation Corky and Carson Taylor restored the 115-year-old building in downtown Louisville and began the labor-intensive process of reviving the distillery. In 2017, the first batch of Peerless Straight Rye Whiskey was bottled and the release was met with rave reviews, culminating in being named one of the Top 20 Whiskies in the World by Whisky Advocate (the only rye whiskey to be included on the list in 2017). The awards for this craft distiller have kept coming, and have included ‘Top Rye Whiskey’ (Whisky Advocate), ‘Global Craft Producer of the Year’ (Whisky Magazine), and most recently ‘Best Kentucky Bourbon’ (World Whisky Awards 2020). We’ve worked with Master Distiller Caleb Kilburn to source a single-barrel selection of the now-famous Peerless Rye to offer to our Florida customers today, with special pricing more than 17% off each bottle. Your eyes aren’t deceiving you: this is your opportunity to pick up an award-winning distillery’s single-barrel selection for under $80!
As whisky enthusiasts already know, single-barrel programs allow the Master Blender an opportunity to craft a unique whisky that’s a laser-focused expression of one particular barrel’s nuances. Peerless Master Distiller Caleb Kilburn hand selects barrels that will ultimately showcase distinctive profiles, but the same meticulous attention to detail and unwavering dedication to the maturation of his whisky remains paramount. The Rye was barreled in March 2016, and the finished whisky layers flavors of cocoa, cinnamon, leather, and peppery spice into a remarkably sippable “Bourbon drinker’s” Rye (thanks in part to the larger percentage of corn used in the blend). The extent of Peerless Distilling Company’s success after such a short time is incredible, proving without a doubt this is a distillery that you want to watch (and whose bottles you want to snatch up when you can find them!). Secure your Rye today, and as a hint to our spirit aficionados: stay tuned for our Summer 2020 special Peerless release!
