When people think of Florida, most think of Disney, oranges, beaches, and seniors. However, one thing that doesn’t readily jump to mind is whiskey. Manifest Distilling is trying to change that mentality. Based in Jacksonville, Manifest Distilling was founded in September 2016 with a focus on organic products when possible. Their Straight Rye is full of typical rye flavors, however due in part to the wheat they mix in, there is a distinct swirl of sweetness found throughout its overall funky sip. Straight Rye seems to be joining a recent trend of youthful but funky ryes that are worth seeking out for those looking to try something new.

The bottle being reviewed is bottle #1165 from Batch 17.
