(Versailles, KY July 30, 2018) — Woodford Reserve has released a new exclusive and limited-edition expression as part of its annual Distillery Series -- Barrel Finished Rye.


The Barrel Finished Rye is Woodford Reserve Rye that has been finished in a custom second barrel made of new American oak that has been lightly charred and heavily toasted.


“This summer’s special rye is finished in a unique second barrel that is heavily toasted, lightly charred barrel, which brings out even more flavors,” Master Distiller Chris Morris said. “It is a perfect example of Woodford Reserve bringing innovation not only to bourbon but the rye whiskey category.”


Morris created the Distillery Series to highlight Woodford Reserve’s creative line of complex offerings and to showcase the brand’s commitment to innovation and premium craftsmanship.


This product uses the Woodford Reserve Double Oaked process of twice-barreled whiskey applied to rye instead of bourbon. The result is a rich, robust and spicy version of Woodford Reserve Rye, different from the sweet, full-bodied vanilla and toasted oak characteristics of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked bourbon.


Barrel Finished Rye can now be purchased at the Woodford Reserve Distillery and select Kentucky retailers at 90.4 proof for a suggested retail price of $49.99 for a 375 ml bottle.


Tasting Notes for Barrel Finished Rye:

Color: Rich sienna leather.

Aroma: Seasoned leather and aromatic cedar notes enhance a rich port and sherried fruit cake character highlighted by a nut and dark chocolate underpinning.

Taste: Warm baking spices enliven in a rich nutty and roasted coffee character enriched by a deep fruit character.

Finish: A dark caramel molasses like sweetness atop a  dried fruit lingers on.

The Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI) is pleased to announce a partnership with Level60 Consulting (Level60) to offer hospitality faculty members a course and classroom tools to teach revenue management, leading to a new HSMAI student certification.

Designed expressly for faculty, the course and classroom tools will enable full-time and adjunct professors to customize existing classes or create new classes with the most current principles of revenue management. All instructional materials are provided free of charge and designed to be easily imported into learning management systems such as BlackBoard, Canvas, Moodle, and others. Instructional materials are fully integrated with exercises and quizzes, as well as a revenue management simulation game ( designed expressly for the teaching of revenue management, distribution, and pricing principles in competitive environments.

Once students complete the class, they will qualify for the new HSMAI Certified Revenue Management Analyst (CRMA) designation. This certification will be a key indicator to the industry that these individuals understand and have practiced core revenue management concepts. This will positively impact the talent pipeline for hospitality revenue management.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to partner with HSMAI and bring revenue management principles and practices to a broader audience,” shares Level60 partner and revenue management expert, Chris K. Anderson, Ph.D.

The addition of a student certification in revenue management complements HSMAI’s fleet of other educational products for revenue management education, including the CRME (Certified Revenue Management Executive), the industry’s most recognized and respected designation for revenue management professionals. The Ro2Win online learning modules were designed primarily for non-revenue managers to learn about the discipline and Revenue Ready was developed for entry-level professionals and students.

“We are excited that our revenue management advisory boards in Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Americas Regions of HSMAI have all endorsed the premise of a certification for hospitality students,” said Robert A. Gilbert, CHME, CHA, president and CEO of HSMAI. “The acute need to accelerate the pipeline of revenue management talent exists around the globe. Graduating students with a CRMA designation on their resume will now be able to easily distinguish themselves to this industry as individuals who understand the fundamentals of hotel revenue optimization,” he added.
