Old Hunter´s RYE is a unique Czech drink with history dating back to the beginning of the 16th century. The basis of Old Hunter´s RYE is formed by carefully-selected rye distillate ageing in oak barrels along with natural dried-fruit infusions. The precise secret recipe and ratio of ingredients has been guarded for centuries. Besides the popular Old Hunter´s RYE, there is a drink of even more delicacy, Old Hunter´s RESERVE, which has aged to perfection. The unique process of double ageing in selected white oak barrels for a period of four years is the one thing distinguishing Reserve from Old Hunter´s RYE.
RESERVE ages for a total of 4 years in oak barrels. For the first 3 years, the delicate distillate ages in selected white-oak barrels. Afterwards this distillate is blended with natural dried-fruit infusions and poured again into oak barrels for one more year. The result of this ageing is a fine whisky-like taste with a warm flavour of orchard fruit in the finish.
Literally, a gentleman’s drink.
