Product description

Wilderness Trail Straight Rye Whiskey is a small-batch Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey Bottled in Bond. Distilled, aged, and bottled in Danville, Kentucky, the Small Batch selection offers nuances only premium cooper select barrels can create using 18-month-old air-dried staves. With a mash bill of 56% rye, 33% corn, and 11% malted barley using Wilderness Trail's own yeast strains, this rye mash bill was created for a broader balance of flavor. This small-batch rye enters the barrel at a super low 100 proof, allowing for maximum flavor development and transfer with the wood during maturation, and is aged for at least four years in #4 char barrel on the upper floors of the barrel house. The result is a rich, non-chill-filtered rye whiskey with notes of baking spices, clove, with an herbaceous bouquet of candied flowers and Earl Grey tea. Wilderness Trail takes "small batch" seriously at just 20 barrels per batch, the result of one fermenter. The rigorous criteria of Bottled in Bond Bourbon ensures it was properly distilled within a single distilling season, aged between 5-6 years, and bottled by us under the supervision of the U.S. Government at 100 proof. Wilderness Trail Distillery blends old traditions with the science of making bourbon. After over 20 years of working with distilleries worldwide to provide advice and fermenting products, founders Shane Baker and Dr. Pat Heist launched their premium craft distillery in 2012, with the core focus of making the highest quality Bourbon and Rye Whiskey.

FAQs

Yes, whiskey is gluten-free, thanks to the distillation process used to make it. The Celiac Disease Foundation concluded that it can safely be considered gluten-free, though it’s still possible that some people with high gluten sensitivity or celiac disease could have a reaction to whiskeys created from certain grains.
Whiskey can include a large number of different distilled spirits made from fermented grain mash — usually cereal grains like rye, barley malt, wheat and corn. The drink undergoes aging in wooden containers, most often oak.
One of the reasons whiskey is so popular is that there’s no single way to enjoy it. There’s the purist route — straight and neat, no mixers, no ice — but what fun is being a purist? You can add water to it, which can enhance certain bottles’ flavors or you can add it with other ingredients to make delicious mixed drinks. It’s the foundation of the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and many others.
