When crafting our Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey, we meticulously work with the five sources of flavor to ensure exceptional taste and a balanced flavor. Grain – the first of the Five Sources – is exactly sourced to produce the defined taste we’re looking for in every bottle of Woodford Reserve. Our mash bill contains 53 percent rye, resulting in a liquid with pronounced spice notes that’s sweetly hinted with fruit before a long finish.
