Four Gate Whiskey Company has announced the second release of its River Kelvin Rye, a straight rye whiskey bottled at barrel proof, non-chill filtered. The first release of River Kelvin Rye was a 7-Year Indiana-Distilled Straight Rye blended by Bill Staub, the company’s’ Chief Blending Officer. This year’s release is also blended by Straub and is a year older, clocking in at a mature 8 years old. It is bottled at 113 proof. 2,470 bottles were produced. The Mash Bill is 95% Rye and 5% Malted Barley.
“Like the first River Kelvin Rye release, we wanted to let our consumers taste the whiskey before it was finished because we have a number of finished versions of this whiskey coming out in the next 18 months,” Said Straub.
