or

If you’ve ever wondered what a midnight flight to BNA tastes like, the answer is here, and you’ll be surprised by how delicious it is. The Standard Proof Red Eye Rye Whiskey is equal parts engaging and relaxing, with a slow-burn flavor that sets the scene for late-night conversations and connections. This whiskey’s intensity is owed to an infusion of South American 100% Arabica coffee, and the taste of espresso mixed with our signature Straight Rye Whiskey creates a winning combination — literally! This Craft Infused Whiskey received a silver medal from The Fifty Best, and you’ll see why when you taste it.

The Ingredients

Like every Standard Proof rye whiskey, the Red Eye is crafted with premium ingredients sourced from the freshest suppliers. The Red Eye starts with its unique whiskey recipe— a high rye mash bill with a touch of malted barley. These ingredients are complemented by the liquor’s infusion of 100% Arabica coffee, sourced directly from South America.

The Process

We start with a Straight Rye aged in new American oak barrels for a minimum of two years and then infuse with whole and ground coffee over the course of 12 weeks to balance the rye spice with coffee’s naturally aromatic flavor. Finally, our exclusive secondary filtration process removes over 80 parts per million of coffee back out of the whisky when it is then rested and bottled at 80 proof, the standard proof of whiskey.

The Results

On the rocks, neat, or in a cocktail…it doesn’t matter how you enjoy this drink. It’s made for nighttime, but it doesn’t really matter when you enjoy it, either. No matter how or when you partake, you’ll be in for a treat when you venture for the Standard Proof Red Eye Rye. Enjoy the results of our proprietary distillery process and our infusion of premium coffee flavors.
