The Vertical Series is a unique opportunity to follow
a group of 450 MGP rye barrels, as they age from
four to twelve years, and experience the arc of
flavors throughout the nine-year journey.
Beginning with this inaugural vintage, Pinhook will
blend a new batch of approximately 50 rye barrels
each spring and set a proof to maximize the
balance and complexity of the whiskey at that age.
The Bourbon Vertical Series launched in the fall of
2019, and the 5 year old bottling will be released this
The Vertical Rye is dedicated to Tiz Rye Time, a
talented young colt who had completed six races at
the time of the 4 Year vintage’s release.
