Dorothy Arzner made history when she became the first woman to direct a sound film, Manhattan Cocktail, in 1928. Her directing career spanned the 1920s to the early 1940s. She launched the careers of many actresses including Katharine Hepburn and Lucille Ball. Later, in her teaching years at UCLA, she taught a young Francis Ford Coppola and gave him the confidence to become a film director.

In honor of this free-spirited and independent woman we've crafted a 3-year-old straight rye whiskey. 'Grain to glass' in Sonoma County, our straight rye whiskey was aged for three years in 53 gallon new char oak barrels. Our mash bill is “high rye” meaning that it has a higher than average rye percentage which results in a final spirit that is bold, spicy and robust in flavor.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Origins

Dorothy Arzner Rye is part of a larger collection of spirits called Great Women Spirits by Francis Ford Coppola. Great Women Spirits honors the individual accomplishments of women throughout history and tells their largely forgotten stories. The Family Coppola hopes to bring even more joy to cocktail enthusiasts everywhere by crafting a collection of spirits as unique and remarkable as the women they honor. All of our spirits are small-batch, ultra-premium and classically styled, and are proofed with pristine Napa Valley spring water that has been naturally filtered through the base of an extinct volcano.
