Wilderness Trail's Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskeys are offered as Small Batch, Bottled in Bond. Once their traditional sweet mash process is distilled in their column stills, they enter the barrel at the lowest entry proof that they know of in Kentucky.
Barreled at 100 proof and 105 proof to highlight the balance of the distillate and alternate solubility expression they get from the barrel at a lower proof.
Their three-grain recipe is 56 percent rye, 33 percent corn and 11 percent malted barley. Their rye mash bill is one they created for a broader balance of flavor to offset the typical high ryes commonly found.
Using Kentucky-grown Heritage rye from their local KY Proud farm, they enter the new, air-dried #4 char, 53-gallon barrels at 100 proof and 105 proof for their Rye Whiskey and age until maturity in their barrelhouse.
Wilderness Trail ages their Rye Whiskeys on the upper floors of their rickhouses for a minimum of 4 years with regular expressions expected to be between 6 and 8 years of age.
