“Our team is exceptionally proud of this delicious Small Batch Wheated Bourbon release. It is our second bottled-in-bond product which marks a major milestone for our distillery.” said co-owner, Ben Franzini. “This is the first major release using our newly designed label and it is representative of the extraordinarily high quality products we look forward to producing more of as we embark on our distillery expansion this year.”
This latest release was distilled using a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% wheat, and 4% malted barley. This batch was blended from four barrels aged at least 4.5 years each.
This is the first major release using Bluegrass Distiller’s recently revealed label redesign which features an updated logo and jockey silk inspired patterns for each mash bill. The label also highlights Elkwood Farm, the future home of Bluegrass Distillers, located in Midway, KY.
