About Koval Single Barrel Rye Whiskey

750ml & 80 Proof

100% organic rye made from only the "heart" cut of the distillate, from Chicago's most famous craft distillery.

In 2008, KOVAL became the first distillery to open in Chicago since the mid 1800s and has been making organic spirits from scratch since Day 1. This grain-to-glass distillery focuses on organically grown grains and local sourcing.  

This is no ordinary rye, because it doesn’t come from an ordinary distillery. [...] Despite being 100% rye grain, this whiskey is fresh and light [...] with a maple-y, candy corn entry and a kiss of spice on the finish. — The Wall Street Journal

Tasting Notes

Orange peel, clove, raisins, and an earthy oak. 

Suggested Serves

  • Classic: Sip on a Sazerac
  • Unexpected: Cure in New Orleans, awarded "Outstanding Bar Program" by the James Beard Foundation, pairs rye with Cynar for a cocktail that has the most delicious taste (and name!) Growing Old and Dying Happy is a Hope, Not an Inevitability

Production Notes

KOVAL Distillery is a grain-to-bottle distillery. They do not source their liquid, as many producers do, instead they craft everything in house using organic, local ingredients.

This rye's mashbill is made up of 51% corn and 49% millet and it is aged in 30 gallon charred virgin oak casks.  It embodies that classic KOVAL house style, using only the "heart" cut of the distillate, which results in a cleaner, brighter-tasting whiskey.

Like all KOVAL's whiskeys, their rye is single barrel so as to ensure that the flavor and pure grain notes are developed to their fullest potential. All KOVAL spirits can be traced back to their barrel and even to the organic farms that produce the raw ingredients.
