Mississippi River Distilling Company Cody Road Rye Whiskey
Handmade from 100% local rye purchased from Dave and Jim Wherry in Fulton, Illinois. Our rye is a unique spirit that showcases the wonderful spiciness of this one-of-a-kind grain along with the delicate fruitiness that is often lost in rye whiskies. Rye is known for being a bold and spicy grain. We distill it very cleanly so you can experience a sweet fruitiness that is unexpected from rye. Then the signature spiciness will linger in the back of your mouth. Let it set in the glass for a few minutes and taste the complexities of rye as they soar from your glass.
Perfect for classic cocktailing, the signature sweetness of this whiskey is a perfect compliment for many per-Prohibition cocktail recipes that were invented when rye whiskey was king.
We pride ourselves in the hard work that goes into each barrel of whiskey. We pride ourselves in the hard work that goes into each grain of our locally grown rye. Now, we're proud of the fine flavor of a truly unique rye whiskey.
Wine EnthusiastBright notes of vanilla and fresh-cut pear run throughout this light, approachable rye, with a brisk menthol note on the midpalate and a zingy finish laced with ginger, lemon cream and cinnamon. Recommended for Sazeracs.
