This whiskey blends straight bourbon made with 36% rye and a 95% rye, both distilled at MGP and aged on board a barge in the Mississippi River in Ballard County, Kentucky. The final composition of the blend is roughly 67% rye grain.
Whisky Advocate says:
Although there are a couple of other examples of whiskies aged on the water, this is the first one we’ve heard of that spends its whole life maturing off-land. We spoke with creator Hank Ingram to understand why he chose such an unorthodox maturation method—and what else is coming up for his company, Brown Water Spirits.
