Wheatley craft vodka comes from the world’s most award-winning distillery, backed by 200 years of distilling experience. Buffalo Trace Distillery is known for its legendary bourbons like Pappy Van Winkle, Weller, E.H. Taylor, and Blanton’s, but the Distillery has a long history of crafting other spirits, including vodka.
ABOUT: Master Distiller Harlen Wheatley has been a driving force behind the Distillery’s quest to create a premium craft vodka. Some years ago, he decided to embark on a project to craft the perfect vodka. The water in this area is filtered through limestone, which really does two things: it filters out things like iron and adds things like magnesium and calcium. Those two factors combined are perfect for distilling. A good, clean, fresh water is just as important as the vodka itself. Made with the same red winter wheat that the Distillery uses in such award-winning bourbons as Weller & Pappy Van Winkle, Wheatley Vodka is crafted in small batches and distilled ten times over. The result, according to Harlen Wheatley himself, is “how vodka is supposed to taste.”
