Woodford Reserve tells MyBottleShop.com that they are releasing a new permanent expression – Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey. The Woodford Reserve Wheat is released at 90.4 proof or 45.2% ABV.
Available in US, Australia and global markets, Woodford Reserve Wheat is based on historical recipes but influenced the core Woodford Reserve Bourbon brand. With wheat as the dominant grain – at 52 percent, followed by malt (20%), corn (20%) and rye (8%) – this whiskey was created by Woodford Master Distiller Chris Morris.
Master Distiller Chris Morris mentions that back in 1935, the federal government permitted four styles of American straight whiskey, each with a different majority grain – bourbon, rye, wheat, and malt. This one was done through The Federal Alcohol Administration Act of August 29, 1935
Morris tells MyBottleShop.com that Woodford Reserve is among the first American whiskey brands to create all four unique expressions based on those standards.
The four permanent family of brands: Woodford Bourbon, Woodford Rye, Woodford Malt and now Woodford Wheat.
“This proprietary expression of Woodford Reserve Wheat is designed to deliver a unique ‘fruit-forward’ flavour profile,” Morris said. “It is, like the other members of the Woodford Reserve brands, complex and approachable – and it will make great cocktails.”
