Emerald Rye

Emerald Rye Whiskey


For something a little funkier in Nashville, try our Emerald Rye whiskey. This is also a Straight Rye and consists of 51% rye, 44% corn, and 5% malted barley mash. Its slightly sweet, exotic flavor is derived from fresh mint, which is infused in the whiskey for 14 weeks and filtered through our unique process. As with all our whiskeys, the alcohol is aged in new American oak barrels for at least two years to develop the classic spicy flavor of American Straight Rye. At 80 proof, it has got plenty of kick.

Try our Emerald Rye whiskey neat or on the rocks — or infuse it into one of many great cocktails. If you're looking to try something a little different, consider one of our suggestions below for a Standard Proof twist on a classic cocktail:

Standard Proof Julep

  • 2 oz Emerald Rye whiskey

  • 1/2 oz simple syrup

  • 2 dashes of angostura bitters

Add ice, whiskey, and bitters to a julep glass and stir. Garnish with a mint leaf.


  • 1 1/2 oz Emerald Rye whiskey

  • 4 oz ginger beer

Add whiskey and ginger beer to the glass, and add ice. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
