About Wilderness Trail Small Batch Bottled in Bond Bourbon Whiskey

Wilderness Trail Distillery is a craft operation that was launched in 2012 in Bold Danville, Kentucky. Mixing old traditions with modern science, they aim to create fine bourbon and other spirits. Founded by Shane Baker and Pat Heist, a pair with over 20 years of experience with fermentation and alcohol production under their belts, they craft unique spirits using locally-grown grains. Their spirits are hand-crafted and they pride themselves on being "not interested in making the most, just the best."

The founders were left with several yeast strains they had collected over the years in the industry and put them to good use in the distillery. The premium corn, wheat, and rye are sourced from the nearby Caverndale Farms and Walnut Grove Farms from Adairville, Kentucky, while their malted barley comes from Louisville. The natural Kentucky limestone springwater completes the 100% Kentucky list of ingredients.

Their production methods include the proprietary Infusion Mashing Process, which ― together with their unique yeast strains ― results in a softer and uniquely flavorful distillate. They are the first Kentucky bourbon distillery to use a chemical-free clean steam boiler that minimizes off flavors. Instead of sour mash, they rely on a sweet mash, which enables more flavors to be extracted from the grains. They employ a hybrid pot still, as well as two continuous column stills. All the whiskey is distilled, aged, and bottled on-site. Wilderness Trail produces bourbon, rye whiskey, vodka, and bourbon barrel-aged rum.

Their Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon expression is made in 12-barrel batches, one fermenter's worth. Crafted from a mash bill of 64% corn, 24% rye, and 12% malted barley, the spirit employs their sweet mash technique and uses their proprietary yeast strains. It enters the barrels at 110 proof and is aged on different floors of their rickhouses before being bottled at 100 proof.
