Out with rye. In with wheat.
In a traditional bourbon, you’ll find a mash bill of corn, rye, and malted barley. Swap the rye with wheat, and a whole new world of flavors open up. With all the sweetness and creaminess traditionally found in bourbon, but with virtually no bite on the finish, Wheat & Spire is among the most pleasant and drinkable whiskeys in the Oak & Eden family. We then bring this whiskey to life with a fired French Oak spire, introducing new, silky botanicals coming naturally from the French Oak.

Wheat & Spire
Wheated Bourbon Whiskey
Our Wheat & Spire begins with a remarkably smooth combination of 51% corn, 45% wheat and 4% malted barley. Once distilled, we age our bourbon for two years in new barrels made of American oak producing a rich, deep yet sweet spirit that is a pleasure to imbibe. We bottle our wheated bourbon at 90 proof.
Now that our masterpiece is bottled, the work of finishing begins. Unlike traditional finished whiskey, we do not rest our whiskey in a secondary cask, but finish our whiskey in-bottle. We do this by placing a 5” long spiral-cut piece of wood, cut from the same species of wood as the finishing barrel into our bottle. In the Wheat & Spire, we cut a Spire from French Oak, porous and rich, containing nearly twice the amount of natural botanicals as American Oak, creating a rich, fruity, silky finish.
Before we place the spire of wood into the Wheat & Spire, we expose it to fire, toasting the wood to the perfect degree that will produce a finish that is deep and rich with subtle notes of fruit and vanilla.
True to tradition. Steeped in innovation.
Remaining true to the legacy and heritage of those before us who pioneered the creation of wheated bourbon, we boldly innovate and pave our own way to perfecting this rich experience.
Cream of the crop.
Crafted without compromise, Wheat & Spire is produced from non-GMO wheat, ensuring quality and sustenance with each sip.
