Food Pairings for Ri1 Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey
(rī)1 (pronounced rye one) is different than most rye whiskeys in the respect that it is considerably lighter in all aspects. When we think of rye we typically look for a robust, rich whiskey with some spice but all of those profiles are softer in (rī)1 with the exception of the spice, which in here is slightly snappier and brighter. Traditional rye fans will probably not enjoy the (rī)1 experience, however for those used to Canadian whisky or looking for a lighter bourbon-like whiskey that retains the rich grains this is a very nice alternative. Mixing with (rī)1 is pretty easy. This whiskey fits in almost any whiskey cocktail, especially those with lighter, refreshing profiles. Those like a Whiskey Sour, New York Cocktail and Ward Eight are excellent uses for (rī)1 as sweet and sour mixers accent the whiskey's profile. On the other hand, traditional rye whiskey cocktails like the Waldorf, Vieux Carre and Colleen Bawn lack some essence compared to other ryes. Overall, (rī)1 is a great addition to the bar and a well-rounded cocktail ingredient.
