Lux Row Combines Ryed, Wheated Mash Bills

Lux Row Distillers introduces a 115 proof combination of a single barrel of 4-year-old wheated bourbon and a single barrel of 4-year-old ryed bourbon. A limited allocation of 7,500 (6-pack) cases of Lux Row Four Grain Double Single Barrel Bourbon will start arriving at retail this August at a suggested price of $79.99 per 750 ml bottle.

“The enormous popularity of our Lux Row 12 Year  Bourbon, despite being a Kentucky-only
distillery-exclusive offering, inspired the creation of a bourbon that could be offered in all markets. The result is Lux Row Four Grain Double Single Barrel Bourbon,” said Eric Winter, whiskey brand manager at Luxco. “The ‘double single barrel mashbill’ is a direct innovation
from Lux Row 12 Year’s double barrel mashbill.

Combining Lux Row Distillers’ two mashbills in
this fashion has created a unique four-grain bourbon with a well-balanced taste that is certain to become a favorite of both ryed- and wheated-bourbon drinkers.”

The wheated mashbill produces a smoother bourbon with caramel and citrus notes and velvety oak finish, while the ryed mashbill produces a spicier bourbon with hints of caramel and vanilla and smooth, mellow finish. Together, the bourbon’s four grains (corn, wheat, rye and malted barley) come together in a balanced, flavorful mix of both mashbills.

Lux Row Four Grain Double Single Barrel is offered in the same high-end bottle as Lux Row 12 Year and will feature a front metal-plate Lux Row logo and custom metal-plate collar. The customized bottom label features each bottle’s barrel number and fill date for each of the two single barrels utilized. The side and neck label call out the four-grain aspect of the bourbon’s mashbill.
