Hard Truth Indiana Straight Rye Whiskey is a celebration of the State of Indiana’s official designation of Indiana Rye Whiskey, tsigned into law in July 2021.
A recognition of the tradition and quality standard in rye whiskey developed by generations of Hoosier distillers, the new designation follows the federal requirements for rye whiskey — minimum of 51 percent rye in the grain bill, distilled at no greater than 160 proof, placed in a barrel at no more than 125 proof — then adds the Indiana-specific requirements that the liquid be mashed, fermented, distilled, and then rested at least two years in the state of Indiana.
Hard Truth Indiana Straight Rye Whiskey is a unique, custom blend of rye barrels hand-selected by Hard Truth’s master distiller. Blended and bottled on site at Hard Truth Distilling Co., this premium rye holds true to the traditional Indiana rye drinking experience.
