    Distilled from a cereal mash bill comprised of any grain(s). Generally unaged except in the US, where it must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time. Sometimes sold as "moonshine" although that is a misnomer.

Tasting Notes

"Despite its low mash bill percentage, malty wheat comes across first on a relatively hot nose that additionally suggests Japanese sake. There's less heat on the palate where corn dominates in accord with its percentage. White Pike might appeal to white lightning aficionados as a sipper, but its highest use is likely as a mixer with citrus and tomato."
