The Ingredients

Of course, Standard Proof's Pecan Rye starts with the ingredients that make our whiskey special. You'll find a combination of 51% rye, 44% corn, and 5% malted barley mash bill. This is aged for two years in new American oak barrels. Then, real, roasted pecans from San Saba, Texas, are introduced. As far as ingredients go, that's it. We keep things simple so you can taste and appreciate the quality of each component. 

The Process

We mentioned our aging process, consisting of resting our rye whiskey in new American oak barrels for two years. Once the perfect spice and oak balance is achieved, roasted pecans are added for a buttery and silky incorporation. These pecans are then kept for 14 weeks before being filtered out through our proprietary process.

The Results

The result is a smooth, comforting, yet slightly spicy beverage. It's then rested and bottled at 80 proof/ 40% ABV. Overall, the flavors combine to taste like home and the holidays. Standard Proof takes pride in representing Nashville through traditional recipes with innovative additions, and our Pecan Rye is no different. Simply put, this whiskey does Nashville proud.
