Beam Suntory has added its first permanent expression to the Basil Hayden's portfolio. Basil Hayden's Dark Rye comprises Kentucky straight rye
whiskey and Canadian rye with a "splash of California port", the company said. 

"Bringing Basil Hayden's Dark Rye to life as the first-ever permanent addition to the Basil Hayden's family is an exciting moment for the brand and our growing fan base," said Rob Mason, VP of North American Whiskey at Beam Suntory. "Basil Hayden's Dark Rye offers... complexity and rich flavour, while staying true to the ... approachability and style... [of] our Bourbon."

Basil Hayden's Dark Rye will roll out across the US from this month.

Earlier this week, Beam Suntory released a limited-edition Tequila under the El Tesoro brand. El Tesoro 80th Anniversary Limited Edition is aged for eight years in ex-Bourbon barrels.
