Redemption Whiskey Releases Sur Lee Straight Rye

Redemption Sur Lee

Redemption Whiskey announced the release of the latest addition to the brand’s Specialty Series: Redemption Sur Lee Straight Rye Whiskey.

Redemption Sur Lee was created utilizing a first-of-its-kind whiskey-making technique inspired by the French sur lie winemaking process and designed to add layers of complexity and roundness. The resulting whiskey is an entirely unique expression of rye.

This whiskey innovation begins with Redemption’s pre-Prohibition rye mash bill, which boasts a rye content of 95%. Redemption then added the flavorful backset that comes off the still during distillation, called the “whiskey lees,” into the barrels before aging. By periodically rotating the barrels during the aging process, the “lees” and whiskey continually interact and naturally infuse the whiskey with even more flavor.

The “sur lee” method invigorates the rye’s complexity to further enhance and develop the whiskey. Before bottling, Sur Lee is non-chill filtered to maintain optimal flavors and aromas.

The bottle design, featuring a silkscreen label and metallic accents, artistically explains Sur Lee’s ground-breaking process, beautifully showcasing how the old-world winemaking process was applied to transform the whiskey.

Redemption Sur Lee Straight Rye Whiskey, a very limited release, is available in NY, DE, FL, CA, TX, and MA, from October 1st and while supplies last with a suggested retail price of $59.99/750 ML.

In addition to this newest release, the Redemption Specialty Series portfolio includes Redemption Cognac Cask Finish, Redemption Wheated Bourbon, Redemption Rum Cask Finish, and Redemption High Rye Bourbon Single Barrel Select. Whiskey lovers are also invited to enjoy the award-winning Redemption Rye, Redemption High Rye Bourbon, and Redemption Bourbon classic whiskeys, and coveted Limited Edition Barrel Proof offerings.
