Wheatley Vodka: The Craft of Clarity from Buffalo Trace Distillery

The Essence of Craftsmanship in Vodka Making

Buffalo Trace Distillery, celebrated for producing some of the world's most legendary bourbons, brings its 200-year distilling mastery into the realm of vodka with Wheatley Vodka. This endeavor showcases the distillery's versatility and dedication to crafting spirits that stand out for their quality and character.

The Journey to Perfection

Under the guidance of Master Distiller Harlen Wheatley, Buffalo Trace, I embarked on a mission to create a premium craft vodka. Wheatley's pursuit led to the creation of HDW CLIX, an ultra-fine spirit distilled 159 times, laying the groundwork for what would become Wheatley Vodka. Named after the master distiller himself, Wheatley Vodka is distilled ten times and crafted using red winter wheat and limestone-filtered water, ingredients key to the distillery's award-winning bourbons.

Crafting Wheatley Vodka: A Blend of Tradition and Innovation

Wheatley Vodka is a testament to the craft of vodka distillation, distilled ten times to achieve its signature smoothness. This meticulous process involves blending a seven-times distilled wheat recipe with a similarly distilled grain recipe, then distilling the mixture thrice. The choice of red winter wheat, the exact grain used in the distillery's famed bourbons, imparts a soft, delicate finish to the vodka, while limestone-filtered water ensures a pure, clean taste.

Why 82 Proof?

Wheatley Vodka is bottled at 82 proof, a deliberate choice to ensure the spirit's presence in cocktails, allowing its nuanced flavors to shine through. This proofing complements the vodka's fresh, earthy nose with hints of camphor, damp clay, lemon peel, and vanilla extract. The palate is marked by a clean, crisp profile with a creamy body, marshmallow sweetness, and a soft heat that transitions into a lightly saccharine finish with a lemon zest accent.

The Master Distiller's Vision

Harlen Wheatley's expertise is evident in every aspect of Wheatley Vodka. From the choice of ingredients to the distillation process, his hands-on approach ensures a vodka that meets and exceeds expectations. Wheatley Vodka is how the master distiller envisions vodka should taste, balancing the craft of traditional vodka making with the innovation and quality synonymous with Buffalo Trace Distillery.

In Summary

Wheatley Vodka from Buffalo Trace Distillery is more than just a spirit; it's a celebration of craftsmanship, tradition, and the meticulous attention to detail that defines the distillery's legacy. Whether enjoyed in a cocktail or sipped neat, Wheatley Vodka offers a premium experience that reflects the depth of knowledge and passion that Harlen Wheatley brings to the world of clear and brown spirits.
