Wilderness Trail Rye Whiskey is a small-batch, small-grain Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey Bottled in Bond. Made from 100% local grains and distilled, aged, and bottled in Danville, Kentucky, the Small Batch selection offers nuances only premium cooper select barrels can create using 18-month-old air-dried staves. WIth a mash bill of 56% rye, 33% corn and 11% malted barley using Wilderness Trail's own yeast strains, this rye mash bill was created for a broader balance of flavor using Kentucky-grown heritage rye from local KY Proud farms. This small-batch rye enters the barrel at a super low 100 proof, allowing for maximum flavor development and transfer with the wood during maturation, and is aged for at least four years in #4 char barrel on the upper floors of the barrel house. The result is a rich, non-chill-filtered rye whiskey with notes of baking spices, clove, with an herbaceous bouquet of candied flowers and Earl Grey tea.
