A recent surge in rye whiskey's popularity has led to an increase of brands in the marketplace. With most of it sourced from the Midwest, Bender's comes from north of the border, where they know a thing or two about rye. Aged between 5 and 8 years and blended in small batches, this rye has developed notes of creamy vanilla, crisp red 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 this new, up-and-coming rye. 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.
