Pikesville is a straight rye whisky that is becoming increasingly popular in the UK. Rye whisky is distinctly different to bourbon in taste -- to produce it the mashbill must be at least 80% rye.

Pikesville Straight Rye is made by Heaven Hill who describe it as made in the Maryland style. This refers to types of rye whisky made in the US in the years both before and just after prohibition, usually associated with locations. Other examples include Pennsylvania and Monongahela styles.
