We are excited to announce our educational tasting with Wilderness Trail based out of Danville, KY. We will be lead by Brand Manager Jerod Smith and Brand Ambassador Haley Perros
If you haven’t heard of Wilderness Trail yet you will very soon. They start distributing to MO in 2021, these guys put out amazing sweet mash bourbon. Currently available in IL. As multiple gold medal winners they continue to focus on quality and taste above all else. Once you try their sweet mash recipes you may never want to try anything else again.
Bio by Co-Founders Shane Baker and Pat Heist
In the late '90s, they were in a rock band together and quickly realized they needed to chase another dream. In 2006, their journey began with a passion for creating the finest whiskeys in the world. They are fortunate to be nestled in the rolling hills of Historically Bold Danville, Kentucky, the birthplace of Kentucky, and also being exposed to the Kentucky Bourbon industry for generations while growing up. In fact, Shane's family has been distilling in Kentucky since the 1940s when his grandmother, Doris Ballard, met his grandfather, Hubert Ballard, at the Kentucky River Distillery when they were 14 and 16 years old. Doris Ballard went on to retire from Stitzel-Weller after a more than 50 year career in the industry. This type of family history provides a lot of their influences today, including some special yeast strains used in their production.
Join us as we'll be tasting their wheated single barrel bottled in bond bourbon, their small batch high rye bottled in bond and the cask strength single barrel rye whiskey which is amazing!
