Stamford, Connecticut-based Redemption first launched its Barrel Proof Collection in late 2015. These limited edition whiskeys are offered with the same mash bills as its standard bottles, but are bottled at cask strength. The high-rye bourbon has a mash bill of 60 percent corn, 36 percent rye, and four percent malted barley. It matures for 10 years in new, charred American oak barrels and is bottled at 57.4 percent ABV.
This 120-proof spirit, produced in Dane, is aged in new, charred oak barrels for five years and made from heirloom red corn that is grown on the J. Henry farm.
