This 7-Year-Old Wheat Whiskey is the first truly new style of American straight whiskey introduced since Prohibition. It is the first whiskey to use winter wheat as its primary grain resulting in a light, sweet, smooth whiskey that is produced in small batches and aged in traditional open rickhouses. Its mellow taste makes it refreshingly smooth when served straight, as well as in a variety of cocktails.

Bernheim Original Straight Wheat Whiskey is made by Heaven Hill Distilleries, the largest, independent, family-owned producer of spirits in the USA. Heaven Hill Father and Son Master Distillers Parker and Craig Beam developed the wheat formula with a minimum of 51% winter wheat - the recipe also includes corn and malted barley. 'Our Bernheim Wheat Whiskey was still an experiment for us at Heaven Hill when we first put it up to age in January 2000,' said Craig Beam. 'We suspected it would turn out well, but even we were surprised at how it aged and matured.'

Bernheim Original Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey is bottled at 90 proof (45% alc/vol).

Tried this fine whiskey while on holiday in Ibiza....damn nice, very smooth which doesn't take away from the character and taste.
