April 2017 Pick of the Month

Each month, Flight Club selects a club-endorsed “Pick of the Month.”  The parameters on the Pick of the Month are (a) locally available in Wichita, Kansas (b) under $40 and (c) something believed to be a good value or limited availability at the moment.  We invite everyone (Club members or not) to break open a bottle and provide comment and feedback. 

Wheat State Gin
Bottle: Wheat State Distilling Gin (Batch 2) (Available at the distillery or in area liquor stores)

Price: $30

Producer: Wheat State Distilling

Proof: 80

Age: n/a – unaged.

Mashbill: 55% Wheat/45% Corn.  A full link to the Field-to-Bottle tracker on Batch 2 can be found here.

If you are in the central Kansas area, Wheat State Distilling has just opened a new restaurant/bar/tasting-room/distillery/event-venue in the Old Town area of Wichita.  It is an amazing facility and a great addition to Wichita.  Wheat State’s existing facility will remain as a production facility and for warehousing, but final production will take place at the new downtown showroom.

This month’s pick is Wheat State’s handcrafted, small batch Gin.   This Gin falls into the ever developing “new American Gin” category, offering something beyond solely traditional juniper notes.

We highly recommend that you stop into Wheat State’s new tasting room and pick up a bottle.  Make sure to tell David and Kim Bahre that Flight Club sent you.  Then, post a comment with your thoughts.
