I posted this in the Rittenhouse BOTM thread, so I hope no one minds me cross-posting it here.
Our friends at Heaven Hill would like everyone to know that they have been distilling all of their rye whiskey at Bernheim for almost two years now. That means for the next two years or so Rittenhouse Rye will be Brown-Forman's distillate but after that it will be all Bernheim. (Maybe I should also post it in the 'what to start hoarding' thread.)
Heaven Hill has always aged all of their whiskey themselves, but Brown-Forman has distilled some of their bourbon and all of their rye since the fire. Bernheim didn't have enough capacity. They fixed that and now all of their rye is made at Bernheim.
Currently they are mashing rye one day a month. That may not sound like much, but not long ago it was three or four days a year, so twelve days a year is a huge production bump.
They are aware that Rittenhouse Rye BIB is in very short supply at present but are happy to report that nearly 1,000 barrels of the stuff will come of age in October, so it should be much easier to find after that.
