About OYO Wheat Whiskey

"Part of the reason I started a distillery has to do with my family lineage," says Ryan Lang, the master distiller at Middle West Spirits. "There's four generations of distillers blood in my veins, although I might be the first generation to do this legally." Situated in a 10,000 square-foot warehouse in the heart of the Ohio River Valley, Middle West Spirits was founded in 2008 by Lang, together with his business partner, Brady Konya. Together, the pair marry modern distillation techniques with traditional craftsmanship — and it's working.

OYO Wheat Whiskey — the flagship whiskey of Middle West Spirits — is made exclusively from Ohio soft red winter wheat. "To get this whole process started," says Lang, pointing at a bottle of OYO Wheat Whiskey, "we started pulling grains from all over the state. We wanted to find something that best reflected the Ohio River Valley's unique terrior." After a tireless search, Lang and Konya identified a wheat varietal growing in northeastern Ohio that enjoyed a nutrient rich, clay soil. "The soil draws water from the wheat, and what's left in the wheat is a flavor that's more caramel in taste than wheat from other regions," says Lang. "That's the flavor we wanted for our brand's footprint."

Once the soft, red winter wheat is harvested, it is transported back to Middle West Spirits, where Lang mills and mashes the grains before fermenting them in an open-top fermentation tank (Breckenridge Distillery uses a similar tank to produce Breckenridge Bourbon). Following fermentation, the wash is distilled through a 600-liter, hybrid Kothe copper-pot and column still imported from Germany. "The still makes a beautiful whiskey," says Lang. Once the whiskey has been distilled, it is aged in bespoke, 32-gallon American oak casks that are sealed with beeswax. The casks, which are medium-sized, contribute brilliant aromas of caramelized oranges, nougat and cream to the whiskey. The aromas give way to notes of dried cherries, crushed red pepper, roasted nuts and cinnamon, and lead to a long and warming finish with a hint of caramel.

Once the whiskey has aged for a minimum of two years (although the average age is much longer), Lang and Konya fill each bottle from a single cask and label it by hand. OYO Wheat Whiskey earned the Gold Medal at the 2013 American Distilling Institute Competition, where it was named "Best in Category." In addition, it was named a "Top Ten Food"in the United States by the USA Network and was called simply "amazing"by The Huffington Post.

"At the end of the day, I think people appreciate originality," says Konya. "They seek out authenticity and they like to experience spirits with stories that reflect shared values and represent a strong point of view. That's what OYO is all about."

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.

Check out our impressive selection of American single malts, or find your new favorite in our rich whisk(e)y selection, and get familiarized with what the world has to offer.
