Putnam New England Rye
Freedom Favors the Bold
Since 1859 The Port on Boston Harbor has been the center of entrepreneurial commerce and prolific thinking. Built by Silas Putnam, the Putnam Nail Factory automated the manufacture of the hot-forged horseshoe nail and supplied them to both sides of the Civil War. Putnam New England Whiskey celebrates his inventive spirit, craftsmanship and entrepreneurial proclivity. As America’s Original Whiskey, nothing says American more than Rye.
Grain bill is made up of 95% rye malt and 5% two-row malted barley. We re-distill Rye distillate to our Master Distiller’s “to the touch” standards. After making additional narrow heart cuts, the Rye spirit comes off the still at 155 proof. It then goes into a virgin, 53-gallon white American oak barrel that has been toasted and heavily charred until ready, then bottled at 86 proof.
Big Spice Meets Coastal Winds
This earthy Rye leaves nothing to be desired. The nose is filled with black pepper, sea salt, and oak. Baked apple, spiced pear and vanilla back the palate. A sharper, earthy finish that you can only get from Rye wraps the whole experience up for an unforgettable silky, smooth whiskey. Served neat, on the rocks or in any cocktail.
