    No, I believe it was the BIB.

    Leif,

    While you'll surely find a greater selection than to which you are accustomed, there are some labels that are hard-to-find or simply not available in KY.

    Thanks Jeff. Leif, Rittenhouse had its original market in Pennsylvania and other parts of the North and was not a local (to Kentucky) brand. It came to HH through label purchases as was explained recently on the board. Pikesville rye is a similar story. Even though made in Kentucky now, they are still sent to their original market areas where the demand is. Due however to publicity given to such brands on fora such as this one, the products are increasingly being made available nearer to home base.

    For those of ya in search...of Rye...We don't produce a incredible amount of Rye, when ya compare it to bourbon production. Most of the Rittenhouse label goes north. Only a "few" cases will stay in Kentucky.

    As mentioned in these posts---in reference to the 80 proof stuff....Pikesville, would be a good choice. Another bottling at 80 proof that's "overlooked" and folks don't realize to "buy" it...is the "Stephen Foster Rye"...

    Anyone know where a Californian might come across a bottle of Van Winkle Rye?

    For the WA state folks, the store over in West Seattle has some of the 100 proof Rittenhouse in stock at $15.30. The website had 24 bottles listed at this store. I bought 6! There were still 6 on the shelf and ? maybe more in the back.

    This might have been addressed elsewhere, but does anyone know if Rittenhouse BIB is chill-filtered? I ask because I'm having a bit over ice and it has clouded considerably.
