Finally… a Wheat Whiskey comes to the Woodford portfolio, and it’s about time. 

There has been distilling on the Woodford Reserve Distillery site for more than 235 years, making it the oldest Bourbon distillery in Kentucky. Now owned by Brown-Forman — one of America’s largest wine and spirits companies — it has been refitted and set to expand. Since the beginning, the folks at Woodford have been influential in the development and codifying of Bourbon production. In short, they helped invent the spirit as we know and love it today. 

Woodford is famous for their Bourbon. But they have produced a Rye and Malt Whiskey before — and done a mighty good job of it, too. The missing piece? Obviously, a Wheat Whiskey. And as you have likely guessed, that is a missing piece no longer. Woodford Reserve Wheat Whiskey is their newest release at 52% wheat, 20% corn, 20% malt, and 8% rye as formulated by maser distiller Chris Morris. And while there is no age statement, we know it qualifies as a Straight Whiskey and is bottled at a tasty 45.2% ABV — every drop comprised of solid Woodford quality.

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.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
"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."
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
