Kentucky Owl Set to Release Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey Batch #2

Kentucky Owl, “The Wise Man’s Bourbon,” has announced the release of Kentucky Owl 11-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey Batch #2. After a successful release of Kentucky Owl Rye Batch #1, Master Blender, Dixon Dedman, has handcrafted a second offering to be released this month. 

“We crafted this straight rye whiskey to be more approachable to the casual drinker… It’s like you melted a cinnamon roll and gave it a little kick at the end to remind you it was whiskey,” said Dixon Dedman, Kentucky Owl Master Blender. “I was so proud of the product we put out with Rye Batch #1 last year, and what we were able to do with Batch #2, I think is really something special.”

Kentucky Owl 11-Year-Old Straight Rye Whiskey Batch #2 will have a smaller batch volume than the previously released Rye Batch #1, has been aged 11 years, and will be presented at 101.8 proof. 

It will be available in limited quantities with a suggested retail price of $199.99 for a 750mL bottle beginning in June 2018 in the following markets: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Colombia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
