Beam Suntory has launched a rye whiskey under its Irish brand Kilbeggan.

Kilbeggan Small Batch Rye is the first whiskey 100% distilled and matured at the Kilbeggan Distillery to be released since its restoration was completed in 2010.

The whiskey features a mash of malt, barley, and approximately 30% rye, which Beam says "hearkens back to the late-1800s, when many large Irish distillers used rye in their mashes".

"Following the restoration of the Kilbeggan Distillery, the oldest licensed distillery in Ireland, our team was inspired to create this... whiskey rooted in Irish distilling heritage," said John Cashman, Beam Suntory global brand ambassador, Irish Whiskey. 

Last week, the company extended a distillery-only expression of its Maker's Mark Bourbon brand to the Global Travel Retail channel
