All about making whisky
A must have LMDW“ When it comes to rye whiskey, three names immediately spring to mind: Sazerac, Van Winkle and Rittenhouse. The first two are extremely hard to come by in France. The same cannot be said for Rittenhouse, a tribute to the first colonials who landed in Philadelphia. Representing the best value for money in its category, it is a shining example of its kind. It is the pride and joy of Max Shapira, owner of the family-run Heaven Hill distillery in Louisville, where this authentic rye whiskey is made. La Maison du Whisky has been importing and distributing this multi-award-winning classic for over 19 years now - and we still love its violet liquorice notes as much as ever.
Made from 51% minimum rye, rye whiskey was long classified as an ‘endangered species’, but has been returning to favour since the early 2000s. Still only available in a handful of expressions, it was, in its heyday, considered to be the classic richly flavoured American whiskey, before being supplanted by bourbon.
