Rabbit Hole Heigold
Our High Rye Straight Bourbon Whiskey made with imported German rye pays tribute to an immigrant maker: Christian Heigold. Strong and bold, this offering honors Christian, a German stonecutter who settled in Louisville prior to 1850. Taken by the hope of this new land, he carved symbols of his patriotism on the facade of his now landmark home. Unique malted rye mash that offers initial butterscotch and toasted malt tones, leading to a burst of refreshing citrus notes before finishing with a comforting pepper spice.Rabbit Hole Heigold is made with 70% corn, 25% malted rye, and 5% malted barley, aged for just under four years in toasted and charred new oak barrels, and bottled at 47.5% ABV. Named for Christian Heigold, a German who immigrated to Louisville in 1850. A stonecutter by trade, Heigold built a mansion in The Point neighborhood of the city, decorating it with patriotic carvings and epigrams, including a bust of President James Buchanan.
