In a nutshell: A briliantly spicy and smooth Straight Rye Whiskey
The lowdown: Originating from the deep south in New Orleans in the 1800s and named after the Sazerac coffee house in the town this 6 year old Rye Whiskey is nowadays made at the Buffalo Trace distillery. It has aromas of clove, vanilla, anise and pepper leading onto a smooth and crisp palate with notes of candied spices and citrus followed by a big, velvety finish with hints of liquorice. Very versatile it's a great indgredient on some classic cocktails.
Throughout the challenges of floods, fires, tornadoes and even Prohibition, the American family-owned Buffalo Trace Distillery has never compromised. A timeless dedication to respecting the past while fearlessly innovating for the future has served us well for more than two centuries. No matter the challenge, be it mother nature or man, the people of our Distillery have been part of the story that shaped America and the spirit industry as well.
