Since the beginning of the colonial days in America, Marylanders have been trailblazing what has become the state’s signature style of rye whiskey. In the decades leading up to Prohibition, Maryland along with Pennsylvania and Kentucky led the nation in the production of distilled spirits and Maryland rye whiskey was imitated and sought after throughout the land. After Prohibition, the Maryland whiskey industry never fully recovered, and what was revived died a slow death, with the last Maryland whiskey distillery ceasing production in 1972. For the following forty years, the once-great Maryland whiskey lineage that spanned more than two centuries was no more.
MD Heritage Rye was recently started by two friends of ours in the spirits industry and was built to showcase some of the amazing brands and labels that existed during the long distilling history of Maryland. Their first 3 releases are each made up of unique blends all consisting of 14 year MGP (Indiana distilled) rye, bottled at cask strength, which is considered some of the most sought after rye on the market today. With a 14 year age statement this is also some of the oldest MGP rye released to the market in recent history and almost unheard of in the market today as most of the rye being released is half that age. We had the privilege of sampling these 3 blends and they are all fantastic. This is your chance to own a piece of "new history" and to celebrate the distilling history of Maryland.
This is the first chance to own the entire set and we have a limited number available.
