Raceking marks the third expression of the Rabbit Hole Founder’s Collection series. Raceking was named in honor of Kentucky’s time-honored tradition of horse racing and gives a nod to Rabbit Hole’s bold and unbridled pursuit of creativity and innovation in the American whiskey space. With its one-of-a-kind mash bill, Raceking explores how malting organically expands the range of flavors in whiskey. Through proprietary malting processes, chocolate wheat from Germany and a chocolate barley from the UK achieve the aromatic top notes and rich essence of chocolate.
When cooked according to Rabbit Hole’s own methods and met with aging in wood-fired, toasted, and charred new American Oak barrels, the flavors of the whiskey become intricately nuanced. In keeping with the aesthetic of Rabbit Hole Founder’s Collection, the striking presentation of Raceking consists of a linen-patterned box featuring the brand’s rabbit marque in a chocolate-brown etching surrounded by metallic mocha appointments and sophisticated racing-silk-blue accents. The color palette tastefully extends to the bottle which features embossed-glass detailing of the brand’s iconic sash label and includes a metallic-topped cork engraved with Kaveh’s family crest of “Amare et Opus,” which speaks to his motto of loving what you do.
This cask-strength offering is 109.2 proof/54.6% ABV. The mash bill of Raceking is 70% Corn, 13% Rye, 10% Malted Rye, 4% Chocolate Malted Wheat, 3% Chocolate Malted Barley.
