George Dickel Rye Whisky
George Dickel Rye Whisky is the only rye finished in the chilled charcoal-mellowed style that has made our whisky distinct. Distilled in Lawrenceburg, IN, George Dickel Rye is made from 95% rye and 5% malted barley. Our rye is spicy with an exceptionally smooth finish and is a great choice in classic cocktails like The Old Fashioned and Manhattan.

Dickel & Co. was born and when the Cascade Hollow Distillery opened in 1878 in neighboring Coffee County, George Dickel bought a large share. George Dickel followed in the Scottish tradition of spelling whisky without an “e.”
