The Story

The Woodford Reserve Distillery sits on what was once an old Distillery founded by Elijah and his son, Oscar Pepper, in the 1800s. Under the stewardship of Oscar and Master Distiller James Crow, their distillery reformed and modernized the process of producing whiskey in the United States — the distillery revolutionized the concepts of sour mash and yeast propagation.

Nearly two centuries later, Chris Morris — Woodford Reserve's seventh master distiller — pays homage to Pepper and Crow with Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon. Morris, who began working at Woodford Reserve Distillery when he was just 16 years old, is one of the foremost experts in the production and maturation of bourbon and samples up to 180 unique whiskies each day. “It's about pursuing flavor through modernizing old practices,” says the 55 year-old master distiller.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey is made from a mash of 53% rye, 33% corn and 14% malted barley. The relatively low concentration of rye grains allows the whiskey to retain the signature characteristics of Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon, while enhancing the spicy and floral aspects of the whiskey. Matured to taste, Woodford Reserve Rye is bottled at 90.4 proof.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey has a rich aroma of cinnamon, vanilla bean and cypress, leading to a beautiful semi-sweet palate filled with dried cherries, caramel, gingerbread and apple pie. The finish is dry and spicy, rounded out nicely by malt chocolate and baking spices.

This whiskey is sure to be a favorite among Woodford Reserve and rye whiskey fans alike.
