Rye whiskey's popularity has surged in recent years. While much of the rye we see on shelves in the states comes from MGP in Indiana, our friends at Bender's have a "super-secret" source north of the border, where they know a thing or two about rye. Aged a minimum of 5 years and blended in small batches, this rye has well-developed notes of creamy vanilla, crisp apple and cinnamon. Spicy clove and brown sugar coat the palate and continue long into the smooth finish. Be the first on your block to grab a bottle of the latest batch. You'll thank us later.
It’s been said that nothing worthwhile is ever easy and they wouldn’t have it any other way. It took Carl Bender and Christopher Cohen fifty-two iterations to land on our opening take on a modern whiskey: a complex yet accessible, small batch Canadian Rye called Bender’s. Their first batch was sourced from an independently owned distillery just south of Calgary not far from where one of our founders was born. They worked with this master distiller over the span of a year and half and were given access to the barrel room to blend various rye combinations. The final high proof whiskey was brought to Treasure Island, where it went through a few more rounds of blending before being bottled and released.
