Rye

The Rye Malt Whisky has been made using rye grown by Jonathan Adnams at his farm in Reydon, just a few miles away from our brewery and distillery in Southwold. Rye has been grown in Reydon for centuries and the village’s name is derived from the Old English words; ‘Rey’ meaning Rye, and ‘Don’ meaning Hill. Due to the village’s position on the Suffolk Coast, our crop is amongst the first rye to catch the early morning rays as the sun rises above the North Sea. This exciting spirit allows our distillery team to draw on 140 years of brewing experience at Adnams. Made from 75% rye and 25% barley. The rye creates a whisky with great depth and character with a drier and spicier finish. Aged in French Oak for 5 years.

"Incredibly expressive and fresh, this has a big and pronounced set of aromas, including new oak and spicy notes, plus orchard fruit and stone fruits. Apricot jam and baked apples, too, with a touch of cinnamon dusting and custard. A well-balanced and beautiful palate with spicy notes leads on to a herbal, long finish. A fantastically fresh and expressive whisky."
