In 1796, Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. broke 'the rules' by mixing small grains into the mash of a traditional corn base. A Maryland transplant unafraid to stand out amidst the residing establishment, Basil conjectured that the spicy flavor of rye would be a striking complement to the sweet smoothness of corn in his distillery's standard bourbon. And much to the chagrin of the traditionalist set, Basil was right. His recipe was a masterpiece, resulting in a unique, singular small batch bourbon whiskey that was blessed with rich hints of peppermint, notes of pepper, slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish.

Artfully aged at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden’s is as novel and delectable a bourbon whiskey as it was when the master distiller rolled out his first barrel over 200 years ago. Marked by a rich cascade of aromas and flavors, Basil Hayden’s is still a small batch bourbon, but with broader appeal. And just as it was in 1796, the only 'rule' to enjoying our Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey is that it should be done responsibly.

Basil Hayden's is unequalled in that it utilizes twice as much rye in it as the other bourbons in the Collection. Enriched by a hint of peppermint, it impresses with notes of pepper balanced by slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish. Aged eight years at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden's has a broad appeal and is equally enjoyable alone or in cocktails such as a Juicy Basil and Basil Bubbly.

Basil Hayden’s, the fastest-growing super-premium bourbon on the market, continues to deliver approachable and unexpected flavor to the whiskey community with the release of a remarkable new expression – Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye, the first-ever permanent addition to the Basil Hayden’s portfolio. Basil Hayden's Dark Rye is the latest in the line of Basil Hayden brand extensions. It is a blend of Straight Rye whiskey from Kentucky, Canadian Rye whisky from Alberta Distillers, and Port.

Much like Basil Hayden’s flagship bourbon, Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye is designed to stand out in the ever-expanding crowd of American whiskies. Uniting the duo of Kentucky straight rye whiskey and Canadian rye with a splash of California port, Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye offers an ideal sipping experience through harmoniously layered flavor. The spiciness of Kentucky straight rye whiskey pays homage to the high-rye content and trademark spice of Basil Hayden’s Bourbon, and balances seamlessly with the soft, rounded presence of Canadian rye from the award-winning Alberta Distillery. A finishing touch of California port ties a bow of sweetness and deep ruby-color on this unprecedented blend.

“Bringing Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye to life as the first-ever permanent addition to the Basil Hayden’s family is an exciting moment for the brand and our growing fan base,” said Rob Mason, Vice President of North American Whiskey at Beam Suntory. “Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye offers an unparalleled complexity and rich flavor, while staying true to the unique approachability and style that has made our bourbon a long-time favorite.”

Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye is best enjoyed when sipped neat, on the rocks or as the base to a modern-day twist on a Boulevardier cocktail. The rich, fruity sweetness and spice of the rye whiskey provides an impeccably firm counterbalance to the bitterness of apéritifs and other liqueurs typically found in cocktails. The expression features the following characteristics:

Proof: 80
Color: Deep, rich amber with ruby undertones
Aroma: Oaky notes balanced with dark berries and molasses
Taste: Complex blend of caramel, dried fruit, and oak with additional notes of spice and a rounded mouthfeel
Finish: Lingering dried fruit with a hint of sweetness and rye spice notes

Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye further builds on the momentum set earlier this year by Basil Hayden’s Rye Whiskey, the brand’s first-ever limited-edition release, which quickly answered consumers’ appetite for unique rye offerings and distinctive flavors. Released to impressive reception and acclaim, Basil Hayden’s Rye Whiskey was awarded “Rye of The Year” at the 2017 New York International Spirits Competition.
