From the company website:The funny thing about Tennessee, is for all our stunning farms and incredible farmers, we can’t grow rye worth a damn. A grain so easily grown in other states, gets chocked up in our soil. So, we went out to find the best straight rye and brought it back home to rest in used Uncle Nearest barrels. WHERE DID WE FINALLY FIND IT? NEW YORK, BABY! Born in the north, then raised for at least four years in the big city, before moving to God’s Country for some well-deserved rest. You get the best of both worlds… the classic rye spice and character, paired with the incredible Uncle Nearest smoothness that has made our whiskey the most-awarded of 2019, 2020 and 2021.

Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
