Blonde Whiskey

Blonde starts with rare heirloom Turkey Red Wheat and White Corn, grown on Peaceful Valley Farm in the lowland hills of Western North Carolina. That same strain of corn has been grown continuously at Peaceful Valley since the mid 1800’s, tended by generations of the McEntire Family.  And in the 1800’s our wheat first arrived, brought by Mennonites eager to start new lives in a new land, but unwilling to let go of the memory and the taste of home. Modern hybrids have bigger yields and are more resistant to weather and pests, but the older grains have a flavor and softness the newer versions can’t match.
