About Buffalo Trace White Dog Wheated Mash Whiskey
Inspired by William Larue Weller who revolutionized bourbon by replacing rye with a wheat-forward mash bill. Before certain W. L. Wellers and Pappy Van Winkle's were put to rest in barrels and aged, the clear, un-aged spirit was drank straight off the still. Inspired by this raw distillate, Buffalo Trace White Dog Wheated Mash is made from corn, barley and wheat in place of rye and bottled directly at barrel fill of 114 proof. The bourbon starts off smooth with aromas of wheat bread and subtle spiciness. A spirit like it was enjoyed by William Larue Weller and Americans over a century ago.

About Buffalo Trace
Located on the Kentucky River in Frankfort, Kentucky, Buffalo Trace Distillery takes its name from an ancient pathway that the migrating buffalo used when traveling westward. The trail was well-known among Native Americans and was eventually used by pioneering settlers who crossed the Ohio River and followed the buffalo trace to the Western frontier.
Buffalo Trace Distillery is the oldest continually operating distillery in the United States and includes the rich legacies of master distillers such as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp, and Elmer T. Lee. Today, the distillery is still family-owned, operating on the same 130 acres of land adjacent to the Kentucky River as it has for over 200 years.
About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
