I think I busted the bubble of a few people this week. One was the bartender who was hawking Sagamore Rye as a local spirit when in fact it the origin is Midwest Grain Products in Indiana. It was quite tasty as are all MGP Ryes. When I conveyed the story to others in a forum yet another young lad had his dreams shattered with the realization most of his beloved Ryes have an Indiana origin. There are a few Rye Whiskeys which are made outside of MGP, but from what I have seen the majority are crafted by them. So the next time you purchase a Rye check the origin to see if it is truly local or something sources from MGP.
