Born on November 26, 1853, William “Bat” Masterson left his family farm in Henryville as a teenager in order to become a buffalo hunter. After a few years hunting buffalo, Masterson became a scout for the United States Army. By the age of 24, he had moved to Kansas and was elected sheriff of Ford County. In 1879, Bat was voted out of office and spent the next several years making a living as a professional gambler and saloon owner. During this time, Masterson was said to have avenged the deaths of his two brothers with the help of his famous revolver, which was nicknamed “the gun that tamed the West.” By the time he passed away in 1921, Masterson had done it all, and done it all well.
Made in homage to Bat, Masterson’s 10-Year-Old Straight Rye Whiskey is made from 100% rye grains. The rye is grown in the verdant Pacific Northwest, and only grains that exhibit the perfect combination of weight, plumpness and rich, earthy fragrance are harvested. After the grains have been milled and mashed, they are fermented with inoculated, dry yeast, which helps give Masterson’s Rye its unique flavor profile. The wash is then distilled through pot stills, before being aged in white-oak casks for just over a decade.
Masterson’s Rye Whiskey has a deep golden color, with a bright, floral nose. The aromas of woody spice and nutmeg give way to notes of crisp caramel, raisins, vanilla and a hint of chili flakes. The finish is long, with robust notes of rye and cinnamon that are complimented by a touch of sweetness.
Masterson’s Rye Whiskey was awarded 94 points by Whisky Advocate and was rated the #1 whiskey in the Spring 2013 issue of the magazine. In addition, it earned the Triple Gold Medal at the MicroLiquor Spirits Awards in 2011 and the Chairman’s Trophy as the best rye whiskey at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge in 2012.
