Bourbon. - Page 95
Bourbons contain a little bit of barley in the mashbill to deliver amylases, which break down starch into glucose. I do not know to what extent the compounds from barley pass fermentation, distillation and aging, but given that there is really little barley added (usually up to 10%), I'd say that you are safe.
The best rye I drank was Willet <-- a totally different taste than sweet bourbons but a great thing to savor.
As far as bourbons are concerned I believe that the basic bottlings are the best value for money. Done some expensive, aged bourbons and IMO they do not come close to their Scotch counterparts in the same price range. Recently I reviewed the entire range of Four Roses and I must say that I grew fond of FR Single Barrel.
So as you see, they don't really know :) But then ... producing a certified, gluten-free alcohol is a great marketing tool when applied to a certain target group so we probably will see them. A bit similar to kosher food products.
Attending a wedding in Lexington in a few weeks and I figure I can squeeze in at least one distillery tour. I haven't done much research but it looks like Woodford Reserve, Wild Turkey, Buffalo Trace,and Four Roses are all within 30 minutes of Lexington.
I think Buffalo Trace might be my first choice, any reason to choose another instead?
If it isn't too late. Buffalo Trace for warehouse/bottling aspects (and for being my favorite distillery). Wild Turkey had a better tasting policy though. Four Roses was decent but not a must IMO. Unfortunately, I didn't make it to Woodford on my trip... next time.
