Journeyman Distillery Not A King Rye Whiskey

SKU 5789af4b1798 Categories Whiskey, Rye, Spirits Tags American whiskey, rye whiskey


750ml, bottle

Not A King Rye is a tribute to George Washington's defiance of becoming a king. This Michigan Journeyman Distillery Not A King Rye Whiskey uses a historic mash bill with a high rye content, resulting in a spicy and flavorful spirit. Bottled at 90 proof and unchill filtered, it offers a taste of American history with a modern twist.


Due to limited information, specific details about taste notes are unavailable. However, based on the mash bill and production details, here’s a potential flavor profile:

Rye Spice

The high rye content (60%) suggests a prominent spicy character. Expect notes of peppery spice, cinnamon, and maybe even a hint of mint on the palate.

Corn Sweetness 

The 40% corn adds sweetness and a smooth body. Hints of vanilla, caramel, and maybe even some cornbread-like toastiness might be present.

Oak Influence

The aging in new charred oak barrels contributes notes of vanilla, baking spices (like clove), and potentially some subtle coconut character.

Unchill Filtered 

This means the whiskey wasn’t chilled before bottling, potentially preserving a richer and fuller mouthfeel with a touch of haze.

Overall Experience

Journeyman Distillery Not A King Rye promises a rye-forward American whiskey experience. The high rye content delivers a spicy kick, balanced by the sweetness from corn and the oak barrel influence. The unchill filtered bottling might offer a richer and more textural experience. Expect a bold and flavorful rye whiskey with a historical connection and a modern edge.
