A surprising wheated Bourbon with zero rye… from Redemption Rye Whiskey.

Bardstown Barrel Selections is a small company based in Bardstown, Kentucky — the spiritual and geographic heart of Bourbon country. They know what kinds of flavors they want to get out of a Whiskey, and they go looking for the barrels produced by dozens of large and small distillery shops all across the mid-west. They blend these choice barrels to develop the flavor profiles for their signature brands and impress the crowds with a high-quality and consistent experience across their Whiskeys. Bardstown currently produces the Redemption Rye product range for The Deutsch Family in addition to Temptation Bourbon and Riverboat Rye Whiskey.

Redemption Rye Whiskey is known for producing great Rye Whiskeys. No surprise there. Then they added a high-rye Bourbon to the line up. Again, seems legit. But imagine our surprise when the company "Redemption Rye Whiskey" came out with a wheated Bourbon that has zero rye in it at all? And we were even more surprised at how much we like it.

Redemption Wheated Bourbon has a mash bill of 51% corn, 45% winter wheat, and 4% malted barley. It sits on the knife-edge between Bourbon and Wheat Whiskey. And this approach is definitely NOT typical. Most Wheated Bourbons have roughly equal parts wheat and rye. This 94 point award winner is aged four years in new oak and bottled at a very pleasant 48% ABV.

At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
