[ Home > Spirits > Whiskey > Bourbon / American Whiskey > Old Overholt Rye Whiskey 1.0L ]|
This is named after Abraham Overholt, a Pennsylvania farmer that had switched his focus from farming to distilling in the early 1800's. At the beginning of Prohibition, the whiskey was granted a medicinal license and the popularity of the brand surged. The brand has survived, but has been produced in Kentucky for some time now and is currently owned by Beam. It differs slightly from Jim Beam Rye in cask selection as Old Overholt is more tannic and woody, which in this case, is not a bad thing.
