New Straight Rye Launched by the Limestone Branch Distillery
The Kentucky-based Limestone Branch Distillery has launched a new product – the Minor Case Straight Rye Whiskey. Bottled at 90 proof, the whiskey has a distinctive sherry cask finish.
Steve Beam, President at Limestone Branch Distillery, stated in a release, “My grandfather, Minor Case Beam, made rye whiskey in his day, before prohibition, which was his specialty. This rye whiskey is inspired by him and a tribute to his distilling legacy.” He further added, “His mission was to craft only the finest whiskey – we are honoring him, his passion for distilling and what could’ve been if prohibition didn’t occur with this straight rye.”
The whiskey has been aged for two years. It exudes notes of warm rye spice, alongside offering hints of dried fruit.
It is available in 750ml flask-styled bottles with a cork topper and a letterpress label. The packaging details highlight the family’s tradition. Being a tribute to Minor Case Beam, the bottle also features the crest he used to carry on his labels, back in the days when he ran his distillery. Steve Beam also shared that they wanted to slip in the original logo to impart a special touch to the bottle.
The Beam brothers, Steve and Paul, set up the distillery in the year 2011, with the objective of crafting premium whiskey in small batches. Two years ago, they acquired the Yellowstone brand and released a special edition bourbon, to mark the 105th anniversary of the brand.
