The historic Indiana distillery will release the Rye in two expressions, Master Crafted and Barrel Proof Straight Rye Whiskeys
MGP Ingredients is proud to announce the launch of Rossville Union, their first proprietary Rye Whiskey label. Named after the founding distillery in Lawrenceburg, Rossville Union represents a historic return to the home of crafted rye whiskey and honors a spirited tradition that dates back more than 170 years in America’s original “Whiskey City.”
“With Rossville Union we deliver two unique, perfectly-balanced rye whiskeys that shows our distilling and blending expertise and character – at its boldest,” says Andrew Mansinne, Vice President of Brands, MGP Ingredients. “Rossville Union is crafted in the heart of rye whiskey country, in one of the most storied distilleries in the nation that has been in continuous production for almost two centuries.”
Rossville Union is available in two expressions: Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey and Rossville Union Master Crafted Barrel Proof Straight Rye Whiskey. In keeping with the historic legacy of the brand, the bottle design is a flask shape molded in an apothecary style with the Rossville Union name and “1847” distillery-of-origin date embossed into the glass. Both products are blended from the barrel reserves at MGP Ingredients, and cited on the label are the number of “barrels used” in each release, notably 159 for Master Crafted and 83 barrels for Barrel Proof.
Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey offers a balance of sweet oak with rye spice. Aged at least four years, at 94 proof, Rossville Union Master Crafted is perfect on the rocks or in cocktails.
Bottled at 112.6 proof, Rossville Union Barrel Proof is a full, but balanced cask-strength rye whiskey experience, crafted to enjoy neat, on the rocks or with a splash of water.
Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey retails for $39.99 per 750-ml bottle. Rossville Union Master Crafted Barrel Proof Straight Rye Whiskey is available for $69.99 per 750-ml bottle. Both products will launch in Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin as of June 2018.
