Virginia’s Fighting Spirit

Bare Knuckle Straight Wheat Whiskey



Bare Knuckle Straight Wheat Whiskey

Our first aged spirit – Bare Knuckle Straight Wheat Whiskey, is made with 60% wheat, 30% rye and 10% malted barley, all sourced from local Virginia farms. It is double-distilled and aged for at least 2 years  in charred new American White Oak barrels from Kentucky.

ABV: 45% (90 PROOF)

Tasting Notes

Bare Knuckle Straight Wheat Whiskey has a wonderful silky texture due to its high wheat-based mash bill. With your first sip, you’ll detect a predominance of caramel, with hints of vanilla and butterscotch, notes of oak from the barrel, and spice on the finish.

How to Drink

Bare Knuckle Straight Wheat Whiskey is outstanding neat, on the rocks, or as the foundation for any classic whiskey cocktail. We recommend a Manhattan, Whiskey Sour, Old Fashioned, or Whiskey Ginger.
