Alley 6 is an artisanal distillery, founded in 2012. Its first whiskey, the Alley 6 Rye, hit shelves in September 2015. Everything about Alley 6’s products—at least currently—is done in their distillery. From milling to distilling to barreling and bottling, it’s all done in one place.
The Alley 6 Rye is a mild 86 proof, and made from a mash bill of 78 percent rye and 22 percent malted barley. It’s aged in new, heavy charred American white oak.
This young, energetic spirit has a complex flavor paired with remarkable smoothness and character. It boasts flavors of honey and oak and imparts hints of vanilla, spice of rye, and a nice subtle caramel note on the palate.
