JOURNEYMAN DISTILLERY “BUGGY WHIP” WHEAT WHISKEY
94.5 pts “Sensational!” – Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible 2018
Fondly known as “The Whip”, Buggy Whip Wheat Whiskey is named after one of the products produced here at the historic Featherbone Factory back in the late 1800’s. E.K. Warren–a businessman who revolutionized the production of corsets and buggy whips in the 1880’s. E.K. set the precedent of hard work, innovation, and an adventurous spirit. We salute E.K. for his willingness to take risks, and we honor his adventure with our Buggy Whip Wheat. This single-grain whiskey showcases the high quality and terroir of the organic Michigan wheat used to produce it. The 100% wheat provides a soft sweetness and smoothness to this whiskey unlike any other and reminiscent of an Irish whiskey on the palate.
