Heaven Hill Brands has launched a "super-premium" rye whiskey under its Pikesville brand.

Distilled from at least 51% rye, Pikesville Straight Rye Whiskey is a six-year-old at 45% abv. It is produced at Heaven Hill’s Bernheim Distillery in Louisville and aged in Bardstown, Kentucky.

"As consumers have fallen in love with straight Bourbon whiskey, they have naturally expanded their passion to rye," said Heaven Hill Brands president Max Shapira.

Heaven Hill Brands, which is celebrating its 80th birthday, changed its name from Heaven Hill Distilleries last year.
