 Product Description

45% ABV / 75cl bottle

The whiskey is named for the Sazerac Coffee House in New Orleans, birthplace of the famous – and sublime – Sazerac cocktail. The Coffee House was acquired by Thomas H Handy, owner also of Peychaud’s Bitters. Originally, he sold bottles of the Sazerac cocktail, which was originally made with Cognac. Today, this glorious libation is produced at the Buffalo Trace distillery.

A sweet, balanced nose with allspice and ginger, orange peels and pepper. The palate is thick and mouthwatering with syrupy notes of over ripe Seville oranges and ground spices, beautiful delivery. The finish is of medium-length with tingling sweet spices.

A classic straight rye whiskey, named for the New Orleans coffee house which was the birthplace of the eponymous cocktail - the one and only Sazerac. While it was originally made with Cognac, the Sazerac is particularly popular with a rye whisky (such as this fine example from the Buffalo Trace distillery) at its core.

  • Fresh, bright and attractive - fields of grain, rye bread, cherries, lemons in a plastic bucket. Sweet and peppery with maple candy and root beer, then a woody dryness in the finish.
  • Tasting Notes by Mark Gillespie, World Whiskies Awards 2012

    Caramel cola with a subtle rye note, allspice, leather, and a hint of oak. Smooth with cinnamon, vanilla, honey, and a hint of brown sugar. Long and smooth with a good balance of cinnamon, honey, and vanilla notes.

Sazerac is a terrific spicy rye from Buffalo Trace in a great old-time bottle. We understand this to be six years old. Great in a Manhattan, especially with Carpano's Antica Formula vermouth.

Sazerac Rye Whiskey 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. It was at the Sazerac Coffee House on Royal Street where local patrons were served toddies made with Rye Whiskey and Peychaud’s Bitters. The libation became known as the “Sazerac” and America’s first branded cocktail was born. This is the whiskey that started it all.
