High West Silver Omg Pure Rye 

"OMG had a different meaning in the 1800's - Old MononGahela rye. The Monongahela is a river in western Pennsylvania named after a Latinized version of the Native American word Mechmenawungihilla. The word means "falling banks" in reference to the geological instability of the river's banks, which are high, get washed out and therefore collapse. This region was the site of America's first civil war, the Whiskey rebellion of 1794. It later became the epicenter of American distilling when whiskey production boomed in the 1800's. Monongahela whiskey was considered so marvelous that it became the standard spirit of the young nation. Of the 2500 known stills in American, most were in this area; in 1810, Kentucky produced 2.2 million gallons of whiskey from primarily corn, Pennsylvania produced 6.5 million gallons of mostly Monongahela rye. Historians think the world began expect that whiskey should be barrel aged because it took longer for Monongahela rye to get to its markets on the East coast - and it tasted darn good. OMG was considered world class, even earning a shout out in Melville's Moby Dick ("unspeakable old Monongahela") in 1851. OMG's dynasty grew even more after the Civil War destroyed nearly all transportation from Kentucky south. But Prohibition changed all this. The distilleries in Pennsylvania all went out of business and the industry there never recovered to the extent the bourbon distilleries in Kentucky did. Rye whiskey had faded away...until now. High West is proud to be part of bringing back a true American product. We have painstakingly researched the recipe for our OMG Pure Rye, made from 80% rye and 20% malted rye. While it patiently ages to become true OMG, we thought you might like the un-aged version because its, OMG! Pretty good!" -Producer
