Created by Master Distiller Chris Morris, Woodford Reserve Wheat is said to be based on historical recipes but influenced by the core Woodford Reserve Bourbon brand.

Commenting on the news, Chris Morris, said: “After Prohibition, the federal government permitted four styles of American straight whiskey, each with a different majority grain – bourbon, rye, wheat and malt. Woodford Reserve now has all four whiskeys as part of its permanent family of brands – Woodford Bourbon, Woodford Rye, Woodford Malt and now Woodford Wheat.”

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey, will be available next month, from specialist retailers, for a RRP of $34.99 - 750ml.
