Union Horse Distilling Co. Announces Release of New Bourbon & Rye Whiskeys

NewWhiskeysStraight Bourbon and Straight Rye Are Latest Handmade, Small Batch Whiskeys

LENEXA, Kan. (March 14, 2016)Union Horse Distilling Company continues its commitment to creating quality craft spirits as it brings the much anticipated Reunion Straight Rye Whiskey and Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey to market.

Reunion Straight Rye Whiskey is a small batch, 100 percent rye whiskey, handcrafted from the finest quality rye in Union Horse’s copper still, then aged to perfection in signature oak barrels. Reunion unites smooth complex notes of butterscotch, caramel, ginger and cinnamon spice.

Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a small batch, artisanal whiskey, distilled from a sour mash recipe in the copper pot still, then aged to perfection in our signature oak barrels. From first sight to final sip, consumers will be seduced by tender notes of creamy vanilla, maple and smoke.

“We’re proud of our robust offering of small batch, craft spirits,” said Eric Garcia, general manager, Union Horse Distilling Company. “Our products are locally sourced and personally monitored from grain to glass. Reunion Straight Rye Whiskey and Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey give our family owned business more opportunities to offer our distinct perspective on spirits.”

The new whiskeys come from some of the earliest barrels laid down at Union Horse Distilling Company. Each has aged up to five years, creating a well-developed and complex flavor. They complement existing Union Horse Distilling Company spirits (Long Shot White Whiskey and Rider Vodka) and will roll out to retailers, restaurants and bars over the next few weeks.

“After pulling selected barrel samples and blending each one, we settled on 92 proof for bourbon and 93 for rye,” said Patrick Garcia, master distiller, Union Horse Distilling Company. “We feel the respective proofs are where the flavor notes of our latest spirits shine. With Reunion Straight Rye, we’ve crafted a spirit that captures what it means to be together, while Reserve Straight Bourbon is a subtle reminder that some things are best enjoyed slowly.”
