Woodford Reserve has announced the latest limited-edition bottle as part of the company’s annual Distillery Series — Wheat Whiskey Bottled in Bond. 

For a whiskey to be Bottled In Bond, it must meet a set of rules that have been in place since the late 1800’s. 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 come 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. 

The result is an aroma of toasted whole wheat bread smothered in apple butter, the company reports, before a palate of apple butter and dried berry compote fruitiness atop a wheat cracker. The finish brings dried berry fruit.

“One of the best parts of my job is being able to work with [Master Distiller Emeritus] Chris Morris to experiment with new ways of making Woodford Reserve,” says 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.”


This limited-edition collection has a suggested retail price of $59.99 for a 375-ml. bottle. It is available in limited quantities at select Kentucky retailers and at Woodford Reserve Distillery starting on June 13 at 9 a.m. For more information on the Distillery Series and Woodford Reserve’s portfolio visit woodfordreserve.com

An line of one-of-a-kind expressions, Woodford Reserve’s Distillery Series is meant to showcase the distillery’s creativity. Each selection is masterminded by McCall and 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.
