Straight Wheat Whisky

Straight Wheat Whiskey is an American spirit, and differs from Bourbon in production in one aspect: It is distilled from at least 51% wheat, as opposed to bourbon’s minimum requirements of at least 51% corn. Straight wheat is mostly distilled from wheat, but can also contain other cereal grains, such as barley, rye and corn. It has to be matured for at least two years in fresh, charred new oak barrels.

Bernheim was the first straight wheat whiskey available in the US since Prohibition, and it remains the sole brand. The principal grain used in the production of whiskey has a great deal of effect upon the final character of the spirit. For example corn, the principle grain used in Bourbon production, has a sweetness, it provides body and earthy, spicy flavours. Wheat, on the other hand, is a sweet, smooth grain, which creates a supple, mellow spirit.
