Rittenhouse Rye Whisky Is The North American Whisky Of The Year
Rittenhouse? Really? Heaven Hill Distilleries' Rittenhouse Bottled-In-Bond Rye Whisky was another winner at the 2006 San Francisco World Spirits Competition being voted "North American Whiskey of the Year." Rittenhouse was unanimously awarded the gold medal by all judges in a blind tasting. Rye whisky doesn't receive a lot of love these days and Rittenhouse is not a new or expensive whisky. In fact, it sells for around $15. The inexpensive whisky was also named "Whiskey of the Year" for 2005 by Wine & Spirits Magazine. More proof that it doesn't always have to be pricey to be good.
