The Bourbon

Wigle will be releasing a smoked bourbon on Friday, June 14th. This smoked bourbon uses American hardwood, Cherry and maple woods, for the smokey flavor instead of peat. The malts in Smoked Bourbon were sourced from Valley Malts, an organic malt house in Amherst, MA. The Maple and Cherry wood results in a sweet, smokey bourbon.

Fathers Day Weekend Events

The weekend kicks off on Friday, June 14th from 5-10 PM at Wigle Barrelhouse & Whiskey Garden with free samples of the Smoked Bourbon, Smoked Jerky from the Beef Jerky Outlet, Just Roll’d Up Food Truck and summer cocktails. The event is free, but attendees are encouraged to purchase a $20 Passport for the best deals.
