A Bourbon that is more than wheated — delivering smoothness, fruit, and creamy toffee.

Old Elk Distillery is not "just" another start-up operation in Colorado. Serial entrepreneur Curt Richardson launched the dream seven years ago in Colorado Springs. And he has his right-hand man — Luis Gonzalez — as CEO. They’re both great guys, but Curt knows that a successful business is built on the talent of the team, and that’s why he recruited Greg Metze who worked at… ahem, a certain prolific distillery in Indiana (what is now MGP) for thirty-eight years, rising to the position of master distiller. That’s a team you can build a company on, and the result demonstrates their success.

Old Elk Straight Wheated Bourbon is for those who want things smooth. The mash bill is 51% corn, 45% wheat, and 4% malted barley. That is about as high-wheat as you can get. It’s aged five years in new oak and bottled at a PERFECT 46% ABV. And while we love all those stats, it’s the taste that matters, and this dram delivers.

We all know that rye delivers the spice and wheat delivers the smooth, right? But this is not a "tame" Spirit. It is pungent and flavorful and alive. But the profile leans more toward peaches and cream. Wheat lovers, this is the Gold Medal dram you’re looking for.

Adam,
Fantastic smooth drinkability. Smells sweet but doesn’t taste overly so. Pepper flavor without the aftertaste.
