MINNEAPOLIS– Tattersall Distilling, the award-winning Twin Cities craft distillery, announced the launch of its first Straight Wheat Whiskey. This spirit was made in collaboration with Lunds & Byerlys and will be sold in their eleven Wine & Spirits stores across the Twin Cities. This marks the first time that Lunds & Byerlys has partnered with a distillery to produce a custom spirit, as well as Tattersall’s first collaboration with a grocery retailer.
“When we began selling Tattersall nearly four years ago, we knew they were special. The care they take in using the best, high-quality ingredients and the creativity they bring to their final blends aligns perfectly with our expectations and those of our customers,” said Bill Belkin, Wines & Spirits category manager at Lunds & Byerlys. “The wonderfully unique flavor of this whiskey is sure to be a customer favorite.”
Tattersall’s Straight Wheat Whiskey is made from 100% Minnesota wheat and aged for over two years in charred Minnesota white oak barrels. The result is an incredibly smooth, easy sipping90 proof whiskey that really showcases the wheat with subtle undertones of vanilla, nuttiness and caramel. This spirit is best served neat over ice but also works exceptionally well in cocktails. This is only the second whiskey that Tattersall has released since opening, the other being their flagship Straight Rye Whiskey which is distilled from 100% rye, also available in allLunds & Byerlys Wine & Spirits stores as well as other liquor stores across Minnesota.
“We love experimenting with new products, as our growing portfolio of spirits shows. It’s even more special when we’re able to collaborate with a name as iconic in Minnesota as Lunds & Byerlys to make a custom spirit,” said Jon Kreidler, founder and chief officer of Tattersall Distilling. “We’re really excited about this unique whiskey because it’s unusual to have a 100%wheat whiskey. We’re thrilled with the results and look forward to sharing it with their shoppers.”
Only two barrels of this limited edition whiskey have been produced. Straight Wheat Whiskey is now available on shelves in 750 ml bottles at all of Lunds & Byerlys stores across the TwinCities Metro area for $49.99.
