    Redemption Rye Batches and Release Dates

    Founded in 2010 by Dave Schmier and Michael Kanbar. Redemption Rye is inspired by the idea of Rye re-claiming its pre-Prohibition dominance, harkening back to its days when the distinctive spirit was the most prominent in the industry. The Redemption portfolio is a line of high rye expressions, with a signature spicy character.

    Redemption whiskeys are sourced from Lawrenceburg Indiana, produced at the old Seagram’s distillery (now called MGP), founded in 1847. After being distilled the whiskeys are barreled in Bardstown Kentucky. The impeccable nature of Redemption whiskeys comes from the meticulous attention to detail. During production, the spirit is handcrafted to batch taste, guaranteeing consistency in every drop. Each bottle of Redemption Rye is hand numbered to reflect the batch and bottle.

    The Redemption Aged Barrel Proof selections are distilled from mash bills of rye, barley and corn: Straight Rye (95% rye, 5% barley), Bourbon (75% corn, 21% rye, 4% barley), and High Rye Bourbon (60% corn, 36% rye, 4% barley). The expressions have been aged between 8-9 years in charred new oak barrels, and after proper aging, each whiskey is minimally filtered and bottled immediately at full proof. The combination of high rye content and high proof in each expression ensure consistent flavor in each batch. All three whiskies were awarded Double Gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2016.
