Rye July

A month-long celebration shining a light on whiskey made from rye, the unsung hero of the whiskey world.

The Gospel Whiskey Single Farm Rye Grain

What is Rye July?

Talk to anyone about whiskey and the conversation is usually dominated by age or provenance, rather than the base ingredient from which it’s made. Just like the variety of grapes in wine, whiskey can be made from a variety of grains - rye, wheat, barley, corn - all of which produce distinct flavours and expressions.

The beauty of Rye

The Gospel is crafted and distilled from 100% Australian unmalted rye, which has been cultivated and nurtured by a single farmer in the Murray Mallee region of South Australia.

Specifically chosen for its harsh climate, the rye from this area is small and dense – renowned for its distinct, extraordinary flavour and is unmatched by rye from other areas.

It imparts deep, spicy flavours of vanilla, cinnamon and dried fruit, with developing notes of pepper, grass and grain.

A Missing Ingredient

Pinot Noir Vermouth is made in collaboration with local urban winery Noisy Ritual. A robust barrel-rested vermouth, it complements The Gospel Rye Whiskey while highlighting the purity of the Noisy Ritual Pinot Noir fruit. It’s aromatic with density of fruit and a balance of bitterness on the palate.

An essential ingredient for mixing with The Gospel rye whiskey in a Manhattan or simply enjoy on the rocks.
