Bender’s Whiskey is, technically, Canadian. That’s where the it is mashed and distilled. And Treasure Island Distillerie let’s it do most of its aging up there in the Great White North before it is shipped to their facility, transferred to fresh casks, and aged a bit longer. And the mach bill tends to vary by batch — alternating between high Corn and high Rye. But in all of the versions we have sampled, there has been no wheat or barley anywhere in the mix. Each batch has a different total maturation too. But they all have been seven years or longer. This can get confusing, but for example Batch #3 was 92% 9 yo Rye and 8% 13 yo Corn, while Batch #4 was 35% 8 yo and 9 yo Rye and 68% Corn ranging from 7 to 13 yo. But their style — that carries through all of their products — is light and fresh-tasting that is less sweet and spicier than most American Whiskies.
