Wheat State Distilling
Wheat State Distilling has been making rum in Wichita, Kansas since 2014. These are the rums they’re currently producing:
Wheat State Distilling White Rum, a hybrid pot/column-distilled (three times through the pot, once through the column), 90% Louisiana baker’s grade molasses- and 10% turbinado sugar-based rum that comes off the still at 160 proof. It’s chill filtered and bottled unaged at 80 proof.
Wheat State Distilling Spiced Rum, a version of the base used in their White Rum that’s aged in used bourbon barrels for seven months and then infused with cinnamon sticks, vanilla beans, cloves, and fresh ginger. It’s chill filtered and bottled at 80 proof.
Wheat State Distilling Aged Rum, a hybrid pot/column-distilled (once through the pot, once through the column), 90% Louisiana dark molasses- and 10% turbinado sugar-based rum with a much longer fermentation than their White Rum (22 days instead of 4 days). It comes off the still at 138 proof and is aged 9-14 months in used bourbon barrels. It’s then chill filtered and bottled at 90 proof.
