Bernheim Single Barrel Wheat Whiskey

$22.99

Bernheim Original Straight Wheat Whiskey was the first truly new variety of American straight whiskey introduced since Prohibition. Heaven Hill’s Master Distillers saw an opportunity to give today’s whiskey connoisseurs a unique taste experience. This whiskey uses Wheat as the primary ingredient rather than corn, making it essentially a “new” classification of whiskey. Others have followed suit in recent years, perhaps most notably Masterson’s. Wheat lends a slightly lighter, sweeter flavor to whiskey than rye, which is the more typical secondary mash grain with a softer texture in the mouth than corn.

Description

At its launch, Bernheim was the only straight whiskey to use winter wheat as the primary grain in its mashbill, giving it a soft, sweet flavor and medium finish. As a straight whiskey, it meets same criteria as Bourbon or rye—aged a minimum of two years in new, charred oak barrels, distilled at less than 160 proof, and contains no coloring, flavoring or blending agents. It was only fitting that this ground-breaking American Whiskey should bear the Bernheim name. Brothers Isaac Wolfe and Bernard Bernheim, pioneering German immigrants with little money and big dreams, established a distillery in Louisville, KY in the 19th century. Since that time, the Bernheim Distillery has consistently produced whiskeys lauded for their superior taste and quality.
