Product details

Released in 2017, Peerless Small Batch Rye saw the first release of a whiskey distilled under the Peerless label since Prohibition. The Peerless history goes back to 1899, when Kentucky bourbon pioneer Henry Kraver purchased the brand. War and Prohibition saw that the business went bust, until it was revived by Kraver’s great-grandson, Corky Taylor, in 2014. The Taylors constructed a distillery in an abandoned 115-year-old tobacco warehouse in the Bourbon District of downtown Louisville.

This particular rye whiskey doesn’t go too heavy on the signature grain, so while it showcases all the hallmarks of a classic rye, with warming spices and just a touch of herbaceousness, it also allows the buttery, sweet notes from the corn in the mash bill to shine.
