MSP Rye-Distilled, not baked

Looking for suggestions of watering holes for grownups, where I can expand my rye experience. Anybody know who has a splendid rye selection in the cities?

thanx, folks!

  1. Have you looked into Bradstreet? They have a selection, as well as masculine cocktails incorporating it.

    1. Bradstreet does a nice job with cocktails. However, to keep there drink price at $10 per, they are using some lower end Rye like Jim Beam ect (good for blending but not great for sipping). If you are looking for some good aged sipping Rye, I would recommend going to Surdyks instead and trying a few of there aged Ryes. Some of my favorites include Sazerac 18 year old, Thomas A. Handy Sazerac, Rittenhouse 21 yr and 23 yr, and Black Maple Hill 23 yr old.
