Widow Jane Distillery announced the launch of Paradigm Rye, the latest in the Brooklyn distillery’s collection of small-batch whiskeys and a product designed to challenge long-held perceptions of rye whiskey for flavor profile and complexity.

Following a soft rollout in key markets, the whiskey is slated to arrive on shelves nationally this summer.

Paradigm Rye is the first nationally available product from Widow Jane inclusive of whiskey distilled at the brand’s home on Conover Street in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

For the last five years, the Widow Jane team has laid down barrels of rye whiskey distilled in-house. With the earliest barrels having reached maturity, the New York whiskey has been expertly married with rye whiskeys meticulously hand-selected – just five barrels at a time – from Kentucky and Indiana. The resulting blend is a rye with familiar spice notes as well as the sweetness and mouthfeel characteristic of bourbon.

As is the case with all Widow Jane whiskeys, Paradigm Rye is non-chill filtered and proofed with pure limestone mineral water from the legendary Rosendale Mines of New York, just under 100 miles north of the distillery, which contributes to the round mouthfeel and exceptionally long finish.

Widow Jane is an award-winning artisanal distillery located in the New York City neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn. The company is named in homage to one of the legendary mines of Rosendale in Upstate New York, from which the brand sources its limestone proofing water. Before becoming a natural reserve of extraordinary mineral water, the mines produced the natural cement used to construct some of the most iconic American landmarks, such as the Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building, among others.

Paradigm Rye is bottled at 93 proof and carries an SRP of $49.99. For more information, visit www.widowjane.com.
