Basil Hayden's Dark Rye whiskey




One of the fastest growing categories in American whiskey will soon welcome a new player with an established heritage.

Jim Beam tells that Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye will be on the market in October 2017 at 40% ABV for $40 a bottle.

Basil Hayden’s new Dark Rye combined a Kentucky Rye from the Jim Beam Distillery and a Canadian Rye from the Alberta Distillery in Canada.  The blending process is made complete with a touch of California Port wine added.


A Beam Suntory spokesperson describes, “This is a similar process as we use with the Alberta Dark Batch as the Dark Batch uses a small percentage of Old Grand-Dad blended with Canadian Rye and Sherry.” is the first to report full details on the new Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye.
