High West Rendezvous Rye
  • $54.99

Rendezvous® Rye is a blend of two exotic straight rye whiskies; one old, and one young. It marries the rich aromatic qualities of a 16-year-old rye with the bold spicy properties of 6-year-old rye to create a full flavored, very complex whiskey. The 6-year-old boasts an uncommonly high 95% rye mash bill. Almost every other straight rye whiskey you can buy today is barely legal, with 51-53% rye in the mash bill. Not Rendezvous® Rye. It honors the way rye whiskey used to be made, with a high rye content and full, uncompromised flavor. With Rendezvous® Rye, you get a taste of authentic rye whiskey. We hope you enjoy it. Great neat, with a little water, or on the rocks. The high rye mash bill also makes Rendezvous® Rye perfect in one of the classic cocktails made with rye, like a Manhattan, an Old Fashioned, or a Sazarac. Rendezvous® Rye celebrates the first recorded whiskeyfest out West... in Utah. The "rendezvous" was the annual summer gathering of mountain men to exchange pelts for supplies. Alcohol was not one of the "supplies" at the first rendezvous. This oversight was corrected with a generous supply of whiskey at the second rendezvous in Utah's Cache Valley, resulting in a successful event and tradition for all subsequent rendezvous.
