Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey 750mL - Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye is the first proprietary rye brand released by MGP Ingredients based in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. This straight rye whiskey is aged at least four years in new, charred American oak and is bottled at 94 proof. It was made from a batch of 159 barrels.

After helping supply rye to so many other brands (think Bulleit Rye, Cougar Rye, Whistlepig you name it) , one would have high expectations for MGP Ingredients first brand of their own. Thankfully, Rossville Union doesn't disappoint. It's a very nicely balanced rye, well-rounded by its time in oak but with a solid dose of the grain's signature spice. Vanilla, charred oak, and white pepper come through on the palate. It's affordably priced and easy to enjoy neat or with just a cube or two of ice.

Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey 750mL - It’s a well-known fact that Midwest Grain Products of Indiana (MGP) formerly known as Lawrenceburg Distillers Indiana (LDI), formerly known as the Jos. E. Seagram Lawrenceburg Plant, is responsible for a great many whiskeys one sees out on the shelves. They have been providing some very high quality bourbon and rye to other brands for years but until recently, they’ve not bottled anything under their own label. That changed in 2015 when MGP put out a limited release called Metze’s select, which was named after MGP’s master distiller at that time, Greg Metze. That bourbon was a fitting ode to a man whose expertise had launched over a hundred other brands. In 2016, MGP went a step further and purchased the George Remus brand. Today, that line features the widely available George Remus Straight Bourbon and the more limited edition, the Repeal Reserve. Most recently, after years of being renowned for making great rye whiskey for other people, MGP finally released its own rye this past June under the Rossville Union name.
