Rio is our latest installment in our Cooper Series which takes our straight whiskeys on a world tour, pairing Penelope with unique casks from around the world.   Inspired by the joy of Brazil, Rio delights the senses with a double cask finish of American honey and Brazilian oak.   The two make perfect dance partners, rich and sweet, with surprising depth.   It's a carnival in a bottle.
