In the battle between the Kentucky rye stalwarts, Heaven Hill’s award-winning Pikesville rye has carved out quite the niche against Sazerac and Wild Turkey, offering a premium six year old specimen at 55% ABV for a reasonable price. Loaded with both spice and richness, Pikesville has become a huge fan favorite over the last few years on the market, garnering big prizes from the SF Spirits Competition and beyond.
What’s kept Sazerac and Wild Turkey ahead in the race is their sub-$30 retail sticker. With a shelf price at $45+, not everyone is ready to drop the extra cash for the bump in proof in age.
But what if we could match the sub-$30 shelf sticker and offer the Pikesville 6 year old 110 proof Kentucky rye whiskey for the ridiculous price of just $29.95? That’s exactly what we’re doing at Mission over the next week, so take advantage of this amazing offer while it lasts.
The initial resurrection of the Pikesville rye label about a decade ago was met with some confusion, as Pikesville was a historic Maryland brand being moved over to Kentucky. Was Heaven Hill bringing back the Maryland rye style or just incorporating the label into their standard rye mash recipe?
In 2023, after giving consumers plenty of time to adjust, Pikesville has become the smash hit that Heaven Hill was hoping for. Now produced in Kentucky from extra-aged barrels stored in prime warehouse locations, we’re inviting you to see what the fuss is about. With huge flavors of barrel char and rye spice, and a blistering 110 proof that dials up the intensity, it’s a whiskey that demands your attention.
For this price, we think you’re going to want multiples.
