Frey Ranch Named a Top 10 Highest Scoring Whiskey by Whisky Advocate

Frey Ranch Distillery’s (Frey Ranch) Straight Rye Whiskey has been selected as a top 10 highest scoring whiskey by Whisky Advocate for its Fall 2020 Buying Guide. Frey Ranch’s Straight Rye Whiskey secured a score of 93 points out of 100, landing it in a top 10 recognition spot, placing its home state of Nevada amongst whiskies from Tennessee, Kentucky, Scotland, Germany and Ireland. The rye, in addition to other Frey Ranch products, are available for purchase at the distillery and select retailers throughout the state.

“It is a privilege to be named a top 10 whiskey by Whisky Advocate and is a true validation of our hard work and dedication to the product,” said Colby Frey, whiskey farmer and co-founder of Frey Ranch. “Receiving such high scores for our Straight Bourbon Whiskey and now our Bottled-in-Bond Rye has been an honor and I am especially thrilled to see Nevada recognized amongst the top whiskey-producing regions in the world.”

Frey Ranch Straight Rye Whiskey holds the coveted “bottled-in-bond” designation, which requires that a spirit is produced by a single distiller within one season, aged for a minimum of four years in a bonded warehouse and bottled at precisely 100-proof, an exceedingly rare designation for a rye. Noted as having a “gobstopper of flavors: dark chocolate-covered cherries, cinnamon, maple syrup, Italian plums, walnuts, and undertones of mint.” The 100 percent rye whiskey mash bill is made with sustainably grown winter cereal rye, grown on-site at Frey Ranch and aged for over five years.

Prior to the release of the rye, Frey Ranch released its flagship Straight Bourbon Whiskey, which was awarded 92 points from The Tasting Panel. Most recently, Frey Ranch launched its single barrel bourbon program. This limited-edition Single Barrel, Barrel Strength Bourbon Whiskey, along with its other products, are available for purchase at Frey Ranch, which is located at 1045 Dodge Lane in Fallon as well as select retailers throughout the state:

  • Battle Born Wine & Spirits (Gardnerville)
