2018 – 10 Best Wheated Bourbons in the country by Distiller.
2018 – Gold Medal by the American Craft Spirits Association
Our wheated Organic Pennsylvania Bourbon is made from regional organic yellow dent corn, regional organic soft winter wheat, and organic malted barley. Wigle mills, ferments and pot-distills these grains at our family owned distillery in Pittsburgh’s Strip District. This Bourbon is exceptionally sweet on the nose with a pleasant brown sugar note. Up front, the Bourbon warms the palate with notes of roasted corn meal and fruit, including stone fruit and overripe apples. These flavors are followed cinnamon and a sweet nutty finish of maple pecan and candied walnuts.
After aging in new, charred, American-oak cooperage for two years, this robust Bourbon whiskey is bottled by hand at 92 proof.
We like to think that bourbon, like all whiskey in America, has a spiritual birthplace here in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Pre-prohibition distillers throughout Pennsylvania, distilled spirits made from corn mash. We consider our Organic Pennsylvania Bourbon to be part of this regional legacy.
