Bernheim Original Wheat Whiskey
Bernheim Original Straight Wheat Whiskey uses a minimum 51% wheat in its recipe as the primary grain. It is not a "wheated Bourbon" like Heaven Hill's Old Fitzgerald Straight Bourbon, which is a type of Bourbon that substitutes wheat for the rye in the mashbill. Bernheim Wheat Whiskey was distilled in January of 2000 at the Bernheim Distillery, and has been aging in our open rick warehouses in Nelson County since. Master Distillers Parker and Craig Beam have been anxiously monitoring the whiskey's maturation, and believe that the whiskey has aged beautifully and is ready to be bottled.
