The Covered Bridges Whiskey Company has announced the addition of pure Kentucky rye to its flagship brand, Ruddell’s Mill.
This rye complements the company’s Pure Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey, launched in select markets earlier this year.
The brand takes its name from Isaac Ruddell. He founded a flour mill along Stoner Creek and the South Fork Licking River, creating the first industrial district in Bourbon County. Here, the mill processed the grains used for the production of early Kentucky whiskey.
Ruddell’s Mill Kentucky Straight Rye has a high bill of mashed rye and a touch of malted barley. This rye mash bill would have been common in the late 1700s, according to the company.
Ruddell’s Mill Rye is a small batch whiskey with individually numbered bottles and a batch number on each label. It is unfiltered and bottled at 94.4 Proof.
Suggested retail price is $ 49.99 per 750ml. bottle.
Ruddell’s Mill is nationally represented by Worldwide Libations.
The Covered Bridges Whiskey Company pays homage to specific covered bridges with whiskey releases telling their stories. One of Kentucky’s first covered bridges, the Ruddles Mill Covered Bridge, was built on the site of Isaac Ruddell’s flour mill in 1861. The bridge provided access to both sides of Stoner Creek as far as 1964, when it was destroyed by arson.
