This is the flagship of Columbus, Ohio’s Middle West Spirits distillery, an operation committed to showcasing the region’s grain through the lens of craft distillation. The base is a local soft red wheat which is then distilled a whopping 34 times before being bottled unfiltered. Sold as a “Whiskey lover’s Vodka” the grain character is embraced and not meant to be hidden. A fun trivia fact: Oyo is the original word for Ohio.

Tasting Notes

"The wheat base is immediately apparent on the nose which shows a complex mix of warm caramel, toasted vanilla, and hot, buttered wheat toast. The palate is mid-bodied and hints at the indulgent flavors nosed before finishing dry with a lingering echo of grain laced with spicy tones of cinnamon. A very tasty and complete drink with several layers of flavor."
