Restoration
Kentucky Rye
Whiskey

The release of Castle & Key's first whiskey

Whiskey takes time. We started this journey in 2014, barreling our first product in 2016. In 2020, we feel it's ready to share.

Each batch of our Restoration Rye Whiskey is blended using a series of pods. Each pod is created by grouping barrels to create a specific sensory profile.
