Wheatley Vodka is made at Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky by Master Distiller Harlen Wheatley. Crafted in small-batches using a one of a kind micro-still, Harlen’s unique wheat recipe is distilled a total of 10 times, triple-filtered and bottled at 82 proof, creating a delicate and balanced profile. This is a craft vodka that is made to be tasted for what it is, while being able to stand up in a cocktail. Pure and crisp on the nose, with a clean taste and hints of soft vanilla, Wheatley Vodka delivers the kind of exceptional quality and taste you would expect from the world’s most award-winning distillery.
“The water in this area is filtered through limestone. It really does two things: it filters out things like iron and adds things like magnesium and calcium. Those two things combined are perfect for distilling. A good, clean, fresh water is just as important as the vodka itself.”
10 Times Destilled
“Each time you distill it, you’re mellowing out that vodka. What really sets us apart is the fact that we are marrying a seven-times distilled wheat recipe with another seven-times distilled grain recipe and then distilling it three more times. So, for us, we felt like 10 times distilled was just right for the craft style vodka we’re going for.”
“One of the things that we learned through distilling wheated bourbons is we know what that adds to the flavor of the distillate. It’s a good ingredient to give it that soft, delicate finish that we like in a craft vodka. We use the same red winter wheat grain that we use for all the Weller and Pappy Van Winkle bourbons.”
“We know when bartenders are making cocktails, they want that spirit to show through. It’s easier to do with an 82 proof and it allows you to showcase that flavor a little more.”
