This week Woodford Reserve debuted a limited edition release as part of its annual Distillery Series – Wheat Whiskey Bottled-in-Bond. Last month, the brand released its Limited Edition “Batch Proof”.

For a whiskey to be Bottled-in-Bond, it must meet a strict set of rules that have been in place since the late 1800’s, including that the whiskey must be produced by a single distillery in one distillation session, stored in a bonded warehouse for a minimum of four years, and bottled at 50% ABV. This new product is Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey selected from one distilling season and then aged in a bonded warehouse and bottled at 100 proof.

“One of the best parts of my job is being able to work with Chris Morris to experiment with new ways of making Woodford Reserve,” said Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall. “Bottled in Bond whiskey has a long history in Kentucky and it has been exciting for Woodford Reserve to create this wheat whiskey within the Bottled in Bond requirements.”

Per the brand, Woodford Reserve’s Distillery Series pushes the creative boundaries of whiskeys to the extreme. Each selection is engineered by McCall and Master Distiller Emeritus Chris Morris, and is available in limited quantities with a purchase limit of two bottles per person at the Woodford Reserve Distillery and limited Kentucky retailers. There are three annual releases of the Distillery Series.

This limited-edition collection has an SRP of $59.99 for a 375ml bottle and is available in limited quantities at select Kentucky retailers and at Woodford Reserve Distillery (debuted June 13th).

In 2019, Woodford introduced its “Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey“, a permanent addition to its portfolio with 52% wheat at 90.4 proof.
