It’s not often that we see a new trend in rye whiskey. The last time there was something truly innovative, it was when the category of rye whiskey exploded with popularity and became as mainstream as bourbon. (Check out our blog post on the best bourbons for some ideas!) But this year, several companies are releasing their own versions of rye whiskey that are unique to them. These 10 trends could be huge for your favorite flavor or type!

10 Hottest Trends in Rye Whiskey: 2022

– The Rise of New York Rye Whiskey: Trump’s trade war with China has driven up the cost of rye production in Canada, and many Canadian brands have been pulled off shelves. That means new opportunities for American distilleries to release their own versions!

– Expanded Regional Offerings: Want something from California? Ditto Texas or South Carolina? You may be able to find a regional version that suits your taste like never before.

– Extra Aged Bourbons: Not satisfied with just “aged” bourbon anymore? Brands are releasing bourbons aged even more – sometimes as much as 12 years old! This is going to satisfy craft whiskey fans who want complexity on an extra level.

– Wheated Whiskey: This type of whiskey is made with a high percentage of wheat, and it’s really catching on. So much so that there are now craft distillers who specialize in this style!

The rye whiskey trend has picked up momentum in recent years. As the demand for bourbons and scotches decreases, people are increasingly turning to rye whiskeys as their go-to spirit of choice. In fact, when we polled our Rye Whiskey Club members about what they’d like us to focus on next year, “increasing my knowledge around different types of rye whiskies” was ranked number one!

We see a variety of ways that the industry is evolving—from increased production methods (like double distilling) to new flavors being infused into this traditionally spicy drink—and it’s all shaping how we enjoy whisky now and well into 2022. Here at The Irishman, we want you know about these changes so you can keep your finger on the pulse of this constantly evolving market.

And here are some predictions for what we think will be in vogue over the next five years:

The double distillation process is a technique that was introduced around 2004 and has now become fairly common among craft whiskey producers, especially those who specialize in rye whiskeys (because it helps to mellow out their spicier notes). The biggest reason? It’s less expensive than doing single or triple distilling because more of the flavor-producing components stay intact for bottling. And as production becomes easier and cheaper over time, there should continue to be an increase in demand.

Budget brands will still exist

In the past two years, rye whiskey has been in a renaissance. The category has not only seen an increase in sales and production volume but also increased interest from distillers, with many new brands entering the market or expanding their reach nationwide over that time period. This is due to several factors:

A growth of consumers who are looking for spirits that speak to American roots; An upswing of cocktails using bourbon as one key ingredient; A surge of millennials drinking whiskey more so than any other age group – they make up about 45% of total US Whiskey consumption by volume; And finally, increasing appetite among sophisticated restaurant patrons- especially those visiting New York City- for high quality whiskeys served at their establishments.

But the industry is not without its challenges. 2018 saw a decline of global rye whiskey sales, as overall spirits consumption remained flat or grew only marginally in many key markets such as Russia and South Africa. The United States has also seen an increase in competition from other categories like bourbon and Irish whiskey which are becoming more popular with consumers than over recent years.

All that said, it’s still safe to say that there is plenty of momentum for this spirit category going forward into 2020-2022 if you look at some major trends:

Expectation among cocktail enthusiasts for high quality ryes served in their establishments; A surge in popularity of Rye IPA (a new flavor profile); And increased interest by restaurant patrons worldwide who are looking for more sophisticated and elevated cocktail experiences

Techniques of whiskey production are also evolving, such as rye being aged in new barrels with charred wood to create a different flavor profile. Popularity is expected to grow plenty fast over the next decade!

Number One: Rye whiskey is the fastest-growing category of distilled spirits.

Rye whiskey’s popularity has surged in recent years, with sales increasing by more than 500% from 2010 to 2017.

The first wave of this boom came as a result of bourbon drinkers looking for something new and different; now it seems that rye enthusiasts are becoming their own loyal following. The most popular brands include Knob Creek Rye bouronical straight rye, Wild Turkey 101 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (aged at least two years), Jim Beam Black Label Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey – all 80 proof or higher – and Bulleit 95 American White Whisky which is 90 proof on average). All four brands make use of 100% rye. The second wave of this rye whiskey boom is the arrival on the scene of a new generation of distilleries. One such upstart, called Tin Cup Alchemy in Colorado Springs, specializes in craft and small-batch whiskeys which are distilled from 100% corn mash using “old school” techniques that rely heavily on kettle stills for heating the liquid to reduce impurities and impart flavor. The third wave is coming courtesy of cocktail culture: bartenders like Leo Robitschek (New York’s Le Bernardin), Chris McMillian (Atlanta’s Noble Swine) and Derek Brown (Washington D.C.’s The Passenger) have all been exploring rye as an ingredient for their libations.
