Sazerac Rye Whiskey is the One and Only spirit that symbolizes the tradition and history of New Orleans. Rye Whiskey that dates back to the 1800’s, around the time when saloons, veiled as Coffee Houses, began lining the streets of New Orleans to sell liquor. The whiskey is named for the Sazerac Coffee House in New Orleans, birthplace of the famous – and sublime – Sazerac cocktail. This glorious libation is produced at the Buffalo Trace distillery, with more than 220 years of distilling mastery. Simply put, this is the whiskey that started it all.
