Bourye is blended from three whiskies: a 10-year-old bourbon with a mash bill of 75% corn, 20% rye and 5% barley malt; a 12-year-old straight rye whiskey that's 95% rye and 5% barley malt; and a 16-year-old straight rye with 53% rye, 37% corn and 10% malt.
This blended whiskey from High West is purported to be the world's only bourbon and rye marriage, hence the name - Bourye is a combination of 'Bou' for bourbon and 'rye'. This combination was also the inspiration for the jackalope featured on the label of Bourye. This mythical American West creature is part rabbit and antelope.
