Rye Whiskey in Europe ?

Postby Pikey » Fri Feb 23, 2018 5:23 pm

Hii folks, I'm in UK and we can't get "Rye". Odin has "faked it" with rye bread or "Pumpernikel" I think we got it to.

SO I fancy doing a rye / corn whiskey, but I never tasted rye whiskey. Does anyone know if there's a commercial rye whiskey available over here, so I can see if I like it ?

Thanks for reading .

Ok thanks for that - Apparenty they want E15 to deliver to Uk - so I'll look into that further when (IF) I get an answer to my question - Thanks again 8)

ya gotta be able to get canadian club or crown royal over there. the shit is ubiquitous. it's a thin representation of rye grain spirit
but it will give you an idea.
if you can find "lot 40" that's a pretty decent rye, actually has flavour.
I finally quit drinking for good.

now i drink for evil.

Certainly I can get "Canadian club" - may even have tried it - but I'll get a bottle - thanks :)

"Lot 40 " you say ? Ok I'll go looking for that 8)

bullit rye is fairly nice.
but put the money towards some grain and you'll find you like it for less and you'll have a few bottles to boot.

I can recomend Bentsticks Oat/ wheat/ rye. it's a 1/3 of each grain and half of the what and rye is to be malted.
I did it but with all the rye malted, a very nice sipper in the white so much so I prefer it to my aged stock.

Hi Squint, You don't say much mate, but when you do - it's really worth listening to ! 8)

If any of our US peeps could have a look down the contents of your first link and tell us if one of those tastes like "the real stuff" - I'd be grateful. :)

tried: templeton, the cheap whistlepig (never tried the spendy ones), hudson (i think the manhattan one is blended as a cocktail)

heard good things about george dickel and copper fox but never tried them.

never had any luck with any of the bulliet, it's all heads to me.

have a good look for "lot 40" its worth it. http://www.klwines.com/p/i?i=1151223

Notice how the % differs on the Rye's 40%, 42%, 47% etc, from different Distilleries,

for convenience, tesco have bulleit 95. think it's even on special offer right now. never drunk it myself though. like SP everytime i think i'd like to try an american whiskey for research purposes i invariably decide to buy a sack of corn instead..
rye malt is pretty widely available in the UK though, save the european shipping.

Pikey
if you decide to make your own Rye look no further than here
http://www.brewersselect.co.uk/ingredie ... egoryId=65

look in the Milled Malt section also. there is some good Malts

you can collect 1 bag or as many as you like
buy it @25kg or 1 Tonne bags.
