We are your destination for spirits. We have a huge selection of Bourbons and Ryes to choose from for sipping or cocktails.

Bourbon and Rye

The primary difference bettween whiskey and rye is the type of grain used during fermentation. For bourbon, it's corn. For Rye it's rye grain.


A specific type of American whiskey that is made from at least 51% corn and aged in oak barrels. It tends to be sweeter and more mellow than rye or whiskey. More than 95% of the bourbon produced is made in Kentucky.


A type of whiskey made with a majority of the grain rye. This term refers to either American rye whiskey, made of at least 51% rye mash, or Canadian whisky, which may or may not contain rye. Canadian regulations don’t require it to contain rye, though historically it did.
