Rating: 9.0 "Roundstone is a testament to the notion that quality ingredients have as much to do with a whiskey’s success as its time in a barrel."

"[It’s] the Roundstone Rye that you should be looking for. This rye has been lauded by every whiskey critic, from [Jim] Murray to the Washington Post."
– Paste Magazine, September 19, 2015

"A bottle of sweet and spicy regular Roundstone Rye should always be within reach."
– Men's Journal, September 3, 2014

"An aroma of sweetness, vanilla, spice and leather. Spicy up front in the taste followed by round sweetness in the middle and a spicy finish.  Nice warmth in the taste and finish."

Our most popular whisky!  Roundstone Rye® is a very unique rye whisky, made completely from scratch at our distillery in Purcellville, Virginia.  This pre-Prohibition style rye whisky is made from 100% rye grain, sourced locally when available.  It is mashed, fermented, distilled and aged completely in our distillery, before bottling it at a very sippable 80 proof.  Aged it in new Minnesota white oak casks for a period of just under two years, the whisky is smooth, woody, with that true grain character achieved in a relatively young whisky. Roundstone Rye has a delicious woody taste, with notes of caramel, rich butter toffee, and just a hint of lemon in the nose.

Roundstone Rye is a superb sipping whisky, a great whisky in Manhattans, or your favorite rye whisky cocktails. 

Delicious mixed, on the rocks, or neat.  Try some this evening!

Suggested retail price $44.99 per bottle.  40% ABV, 750 ml
