Old Elk Straight Wheated Bourbon Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Old Elk Straight Wheated Bourbon Whiskey

Old Elk Distillery was founded in 2013 by Curt and Nancy Richardson (creators of OtterBox and Blue Ocean Enterprises) in Fort Collins, Colorado. The label is a collaboration with Master Distiller Greg Metze of MGP fame, a bourbon specialist with over 40 years of experience in whiskey development. They consistently produce top quality handcrafted vodkas, gins, and bourbons. Named Colorado "Distillery of the Year" by the New York International Spirits Competition for two consecutive years (2016-2017), the Old Elk Distillery produces Old Elk Bourbon, Dry Town Gin, Dry Town Vodka, and Nooku Bourbon Cream.Their bourbon is handcrafted using a signature Slow Cut proofing process, which is said to enhance the bourbons flavors through a meticulous technique where the spirit is cut to proof, left to rest, and the process is repeated over the course of multiple weeks. This method takes significantly longer than the traditional 24-48 hour proofing process. This extra time allows the flavors to mingle, resulting in a smoother, more balanced bourbon. As less heat is produced, the lighter flavors stay in the liquid.Their award-winning Straight Wheated Bourbon is crafted with a mash bill of 51 percent corn, 45 percent wheat, and 4 percent malted barley. Employing the deep knowledge of Metze, their experience with their flagship bourbon, and the Slow Cut proofing process, its a smooth and layered whiskey that is aged for at least 5 years and bottled at 92 proof. The expression has won a Gold Medal at the New York International Spirits Competition as well as from the Beverage Testing Institute.Get your bottle today!
