Basil Hayden’s will soon launch the Two by Two Rye, a whiskey which consists of a blend of two Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskeys and two Kentucky Straight rye whiskeys.
At varying ages which haven’t been officially announced, blending team was inspired by the rapid growth of the bourbon and rye categories.
The whiskey will be bottled at 80 proof (40% ABV) and the price will be around $45 for a 750 ml bottle.
BourbonBlog.com is the first media outlet to report these details as Beam Suntory says they took on the challenge of bringing together whiskeys from their large assortment of aging stock to create something
“incredibly balanced that embodies the best that both types of whiskey have to offer the sweetness of bourbon and the spiciness of rye.”
What We Know..
Both bourbons used are Kentucky Straight bourbons and both ryes are Kentucky Straight ryes and the final blend is about 20% bourbon to 80% rye, but the exact source and ratio of our blending whiskeys is proprietary.
According to Beam:
The team had full access to our large assortment of aging stocks to create this unique rye that most importantly, tastes pretty damn good.
