A truly easy drinking whiskey distinguished by its subtle rye-forward flavor, our bourbon has a rye content of 21%, giving it a light but distinct hint of spice. Enjoy it on the rocks or mixed into your favorite bourbon cocktail.
Prior to Prohibition, rye whiskey’s bold, spicy flavor connected with a generation not short on challenges. It was America’s favorite spirit at the time. While rye whiskey largely disappeared once Prohibition lifted, the character and resolve that defined Americans did not. That’s why at Redemption we believe that as we bring back true, authentic rye whiskey, it will be appreciated as much now as it was then. Redemption’s line of premium whiskeys are enabling a new generation to discover America’s original favorite ‘rye-forward’ whiskey. Crafted by master blender Dave Carpenter, Redemption Whiskey is inspired by genuine pre-Prohibition recipes to bring forth truly distinctive rye notes. Varying in bold flavors, Redemption can be enjoyed on its own or in a classic cocktail.
Dave Carpenter combines his love of whiskey with a passion for its history: “Rye is the past and future of American whiskey. It’s been my distinct opportunity to enjoy some of the finest whiskeys ever made. I’m even more excited about the great ones I’ve yet to try, but when I do, the odds are, they will be made with rye.”
Raised in Kentucky, whiskey has been the common thread throughout his life. Growing up, he admired his grandfather’s old bourbon decanters, and in culinary school, he developed an appreciation for whiskey-making traditions. Dave spent more than a decade working as a chef and bartender, embracing his love for hospitality and mastering the culinary art of balancing flavors of high-quality ingredients.
Later, he transitioned to the world of craft American whiskey and quickly rose to become the Head Distiller, making premium craft whiskey and other spirits.
