In 1999, Heaven Hill Distillery purchased the Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whisky brand, and kept it alive during a time when the popularity of whiskey was in decline. Then came the 2000s, starting in New York City, a cocktail Renaissance resurfaced classic recipes to spirits fans. Bartenders looking to keep their beverage programs true to history turned to cocktail books dating back to the mid-1800s. These books features rye, not Bourbon, and the former surged in popularity. At the time, Rittenhouse was the only Bottled-in-Bond Rye Whiskey on the market, and at 100 proof, it held up well when mixed in cocktails. It was also well balanced, and the high percentage of corn in the mashbill made it easy to enjoy for those who were new to the category. It quickly became a must-have spirit for many craft cocktail programs.

Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whisky has a storied past with a heritage that commemorates Philadelphia’s famous Rittenhouse Square. Bottled-in-Bond, today’s Rittenhouse carries the distinct, spicy flavor that is long associated with the brand. Rittenhouse is the Rye Whisky of choice for both mixologists and whisky aficionados alike.
