In 1846, William “Buffalo Bill” Cody was born in Le Claire, Iowa. During his storied life, he was regarded as a regular purveyor of whiskey. Legend has it that rye whiskey was his spirit of choice. So we had to make a rye!
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. We hope you take pride in sharing some with your friends and raising a glass to one of America's greatest heroes. We like to think Buffalo Bill would be proud of it too. Enjoy a new stroll down Cody Road today!
