Why drink Ragtime Rye? Among other reasons, New York Distilling's owner Allan Katz loves cocktails, so he makes his spirits with that malleability in mind.
Made with 72 percent rye, 16 percent corn and 12 percent malted barley, Ragtime explodes with the spiciness that rye lovers embrace. It spends three years in new, charred American oak barrels, which add to the vanilla and caramel notes. And, at 90.4 proof, it's big enough to stand up to any cocktail it encounters without losing its personality.
