Redemption Whiskey is expanding its portfolio with its first Wheated Bourbon, debuting this month. Owned by Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits, Redemption Whiskey has heretofore been known for producing sourced rye whiskey and bourbon with high rye content. Continuing in that tradition, Redemption has released another true expression of grain; the limited-edition Redemption Wheated Bourbon ($45.99 SRP) featuring a high wheat mash bill of 45 percent winter wheat.
“The release of our Redemption Wheated Bourbon represents the first in a series of limited production expressions that we will bring to market over the next few years,” says Tom Steffanci, President of Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits. “The wheat and corn in the Wheated Bourbon combine to create a complex, unique and delicious whiskey.”
While most wheat-forward bourbons have between 20% and 30% of the grain in the mash bill, Redemption’s Wheated Bourbon contains 45% winter wheat, 51% corn, and 4% malted barley. Complimented by four years of aging in new oak barrels and the high wheat content, this whiskey is mellow and nutty and a long smooth finish, even at 96 proof.
Like other Redemption whiskeys, the Redemption Wheated Bourbon is sourced from MGP in Indiana. It will retail for $45.99.
