We like to think that bourbon, like all whiskey in America, has a spiritual birthplace here in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Pre-prohibition distillers throughout Pennsylvania, when they had run out of their preferred rye grain, would distill spirits made from corn mash. We consider our Organic Pennsylvania Bourbon to be part of this regional legacy.
Our wheated Organic Pennsylvania Bourbon mash is made up of local organic yellow dent corn, organic soft winter wheat, and malted barley. Production begins when we grind the whole grains into grist that once mixed with water and yeast, becomes the basis for one of America’s favorite spirits. Once the mash is fermented, we process moves to our copper kettle stills where the fermented mash is transformed into a high alcohol spirit. After aging in new, charred, American-oak cooperage, this robust Bourbon whiskey is bottled by hand at 92 proof.
It is exceptionally sweet on the nose with a pleasant brown sugar note. In a snifter the Bourbon’s sweetness is complimented by a mineral-y earthiness and baking spice flavors of clove and vanilla. Wigle’s Pennsylvania Bourbon is a whiskey sure to please the most discerning of palettes when served neat or on the rocks, but is also a great choice for cocktails!
