Bravery is about facing risk – a journey to a new world, a new career later in life. Four centuries ago, the first American whiskey was distilled in Virginia. A new industry was launched and endured against unfathomable odds through determination, resourcefulness, and resiliency. That spirit of perseverance, distilled through 400 years of craft, is proudly presented today as 100 proof Distiller’s Reserve Bottled-in-Bond Rye Whiskey by KO Distilling.


Distiller’s Reserve Bottled-in-Bond Rye Whiskey is aged a minimum of four years in new, charred American White Oak barrels after being distilled onsite at KO Distilling by Ryan Hendricks in one distilling season. It is handcrafted from 100% Virginia-grown rye, and bottled at 100 proof.

Tasting Notes

Distiller’s Reserve Rye Whiskey presents initial rye spice and peppercorn, quickly complemented by notes of warm vanilla glaze, cinnamon graham cracker, underlying maple sweetness, ripe jackfruit, and a refreshing menthol finish.

How to Drink

Distiller’s Reserve Bottled-in-Bond Rye Whiskey is exceptional neat. For those who prefer a cocktail, we recommend a classic, spirit-forward option that lets the whiskey shine such as a Sazerac, Old Fashioned, or Manhattan.
