Limestone® Branch Distillery introduced Minor Case Straight Rye Whiskey in February, featuring straight rye whiskey with a sherry cask finish and bottled at 90 proof.

“My grandfather, Minor Case Beam, made rye whiskey in his day, before prohibition, which was his specialty. This rye whiskey is inspired by him and a tribute to his distilling legacy,” says Steve Beam, President and Distiller of Limestone Branch Distillery. “His mission was to craft only the finest whiskey – we are honoring him, his passion for distilling, and what could’ve been if prohibition didn’t occur with this straight rye.”

Minor Case Straight Rye Whiskey offers a warm rye spice complemented by the dried fruit notes from being finished in a sherry cask barrel. The combination offers depth to the overall experience of this whiskey, which is packaged in a unique flask-style bottle with a letterpress label and a cork topper. As the rye whiskey itself is a direct link to the Beam family lineage, all of the details of the packaging are also a nod to the family history and tradition. The bottle features the crest Minor Case Beam used in his labels back when he had his own distillery. If you look closely, you can see the letters M, C, and B in the crest.

“We are excited to share our family heritage and proud to honor our great-grandfather with the release of this product.”
