Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whisky was the first rye whiskey to be produced and aged in Philadelphia since Prohibition, and for nearly 200 years Rittenhouse has been honoring its dedication to crafting this classic spirit.
Rittenhouse Rye Whisky has a storied past - from from being passed from George Washington to Abe Lincoln, to being made in the heart of Philadelphia and in Kentucky. It is aged in charred American white oak barrels and exudes an exceptional honey and caramel flavor with a rye finish.
Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whisky is named for the famous Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia, then the home of America's first whiskey distillery. All of our rye whisky is hand crafted from a recipe dating back to 1801.
