The first truly new American Whiskey to be introduced in many generations. Whereas others contain primarily corn, barley, or rye, Bernheim is the only type of straight whiskey which uses soft winter wheat.
nextSection93 points and 'Top 50 Spirits 2011,' Wine Enthusiast: "45% abv. This small-batch whiskey, with its bright copper penny color and bewitchingly sweet aromas of cocoa, mocha and fresh-baked cookies, is one of the few 'straight wheat' whiskeys out there. The flavors are brisk and restrained, with leather and tobacco tones and a clean citrus and vanilla finish. Despite a relatively high proof, it still comes across as mellow and balanced. Drink straight up, with ice. (Mar 2011)"
Wine Searcher: "(style: smooth) A sweet and easy nose floats brittle sweet mint candy to you. The mint smoothes the burn as the candy dissolves, and you may catch a hint of corn as the long glide of the finish starts. The wheat preponderance makes this one quite gentle and approachable. 90 proof. (1/31/12)"

Vincent and Stephanie Boyer's domaine in Visan contains great historical reference in winemaking and European feudalism. The building in which Vincent's family resides is surrounded by old mourvèdre vines and fig and cherry trees. It is a fortified farmhouse that was built by Templar knights in the middle ages. The Templars were an order of Christian crusaders who achieved great wealth and prominence in commerce throughout Christendom in the 12th and 13th centuries and established many farms and vineyards. The Bastide property became Benedictine, then a Dominican monastery and continued to grow grapes for wine. They live in this historical place with Vincent's mother and their two mischievous little girls. Vincent took over his father’s winemaking legacy and Vincent and Stephanie, also a trained oenologist, carry forward the domaine with energy, innovation and focus. The vineyard is stronger than ever. Vincent hopes to make the farm fully organic in the near future. 60% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% old vine Carignan. Average age of vines - 35years
