American Blended Whiskey
A small batch whiskey with vanilla honey smoothness and a subtle oak finish.
Comprised of the choicest spirits made in the USA.
John Rich had a very specific flavor profile in mind and was adamant that the ingredients be all American. #DrinkAmerican.
With those nuggets of information the West Coast team at Eastside Distilling set to work to create something reminiscent of Canadian Whiskey, yet produced right here in the good ol’ US of A!
Hundreds of samples (and a few hangovers) later, Redneck Riviera American Blended Whiskey was born.
The final test? Making sure that it could get past even the toughest whiskey critic, Granny Rich! We are proud to say that its certified #GrannyRichApproved..
My team and I worked tirelessly on the creation of Redneck Riviera Whiskey. I wanted an American blend like nothing else on the shelf, and that’s exactly what we got!
RR Whiskey is as smooth as it gets, and I’m proud to offer it to America’s ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’ crowd!Send it to my house! Store Locator
Artfully blended and produced in small batches, using only the highest quality ingredients, Redneck Riviera is everything you have ever wanted in an American Whiskey. It’s a taste of the “good life” in every sip. You’ve worked hard, now its time to play hard!
The result is a masterful blend of two premium whiskies; one bringing the sweetness of grains and malt with an oak barrel finish; the other, a smooth whiskey that tastes like the caramel corn you enjoyed at the state fair as a kid. Both whiskies spent just the right amount of time aging.
The combination of mash-bills consisting of Midwest corn, a little malt and a little rye makes a damn fine spirit that’s good enough to shoot, sip or mix.
We know what it means to work hard. And its important to also have a taste of the “good life” every now and then. Thats why we cut no corners in creating the finest American Blended Whiskey on the market. You deserve it!

Frequently Asked Questions
Does this whiskey have corn?
Yes. Redneck Riviera is a blend of two premium whiskies with the majority of the mash bill being corn. We believe corn makes the sweetest tasting whiskey.

Eastside Distilling, Portland OR (NASDAQ: EAST)
Does this product contain gluten?
No. Distilled spirits are gluten free, including whiskey. Gluten can be added back to the whiskey in the form of malt extract or certain caramel colorings. Redneck Riviera does not add these ingredients back into the spirt. For more info please visit:

What is meant by ‘American Blended Whiskey’?
American “blended whiskey” is a blend of two or more whiskeys and must contain a minimum of 20% straight whiskey (meaning the spirit is aged a minimum of two years and contains 51% of a single grain; corn, wheat, rye, etc.) Check out the back label of your bottle to see exactly what went into the Redneck Rivera blend!
What is the mash bill of the whiskey?
Redneck Riviera Whiskey contains many grains including corn, rye and malted barley. The exact blend of these grains is our secret sauce and is proprietary!
Folds of Honor, what is that and what is the connection to Redneck Riviera Whiskey?
John Rich grew up in a family where it was taught that for every dollar earned a portion is to go to a charitable cause; this is known as ‘giving tithes’. John believes that it is the American way and a responsibility to provide for those who are less fortunate. Folds of Honor is an organization founded by Major Dan Rooney that provides college scholarships for children and spouses of fallen soldiers. The charity gave out over $60 million in scholarships last year and 10% from every sale of Redneck Riviera Whiskey goes directly to the cause. Learn more at https://www.foldsofhonor.org/
I drink Jim Beam. How is this different from bourbon?
Good question. Bourbon is distilled of at least 51% corn, at no more than 160 proof, aged in new charred American White Oak barrels and has no minimum maturation requirement. Unlike bourbon described here, American whiskey can be distilled at a higher proof, be made up of any combination of grains and can age in used whiskey barrels. Typically, bourbon tends to be a bit higher octane with spice and smoke characteristics while American blends are a bit gentler on the palate. Although bourbon remains the official national spirit, we think there is nothing more American than American blended whiskey
I drink Crown Royal. How is this different/similar?
Another great question! First of all, Redneck Riviera Whiskey is fermented, distilled and aged in the U.S. of A while Crown is produced in Manitoba, Canada. While similar to the lighter Canadian style, we think we’ve hit the nail on the head by producing a robust, smooth and slightly sweet whiskey without the hassle of importation. Try them side-by-side and tell us how we did!
How should I enjoy my bottle of Redneck Riviera Whiskey?
Our best advice is to drink your whiskey how you typically enjoy it! Whether that’s sipping it neat, taking as a shot, mixed with your favorite cola or in a classic old fashioned, we’re sure you’ll enjoy Redneck Riviera.
