Hemingway Rye is built on family traditions. Just as Ernest Hemingway lived a life full of timeless tales worth regaling, the same is true for the Call and Groth Families. The men who crafted this whiskey have distilling in their blood, along with stories and lessons passed down for more than 230 years. We chat with Master Distiller Jacob Call and Marketing Director Forrest Smallwood about how Hemingway Rye came to be, how they got into the whiskey business, launching Western Kentucky Distilling, the new Hemingway Rye Signature Edition, their first edition rye, what's coming up, why a rye and more.
