Standard Proof Whisky Company produces Red Eye and a host of other infused liquors. It is a new kid in the old block of Tennesse whisky distilleries. The product label says it was established in 2014. Its website further claims "Born behind the bar, Buy standard proof and have your own handcrafted whisky experience". 
As for red eye rye, they use 100% American Arabica coffee which is mixed with their straight rye whisky. That is where the magic of blending happens which creates this coffee-infused whisky.
