Further Rye is named in honor of “Further,” a 1939 school bus that was owned by novelist Ken Kesey, author of best selling novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The bus is symbolic of a time of change, and portions of sales from Further Bourbon and Rye are being used to restore the bus. Inside the bottle is 2 year old MGP rye, a common source for a variety of brands, however the particular barrels used or simply the overall blend represents some of the best young MGP rye I’ve had.
