Get acquainted with the flavours of whiskey by trying these two delicious cocktail recipes using The Wiseman’s expertly crafted spirits.

Is the world of sipping whiskey a novel concept for you? If so, you’re not alone. The stepping stone to embracing whiskey as your preferred spirit commences with a well-crafted cocktail. Today, we’re unveiling two incredibly palatable concoctions that showcase The Wiseman’s meticulously curated spirits. These recipes are both accessible and enjoyable for crafting at home. However, before we dive into mixology, let’s lay the foundation with some essential knowledge.

Kentucky is at the heart of bourbon whiskey production contributing a remarkable 95 percent of the world’s output. Within this prestigious realm, The Wiseman, a distinguished Kentucky straight whiskey, has found its way to Australian shores. The mastermind behind this treasure is none other than Master Blender John Rhea, a revered 40-year veteran in the industry and a distinguished member of the Bourbon Hall of Fame. Rhea’s return from retirement to create this exquisite spirit is a testament to his unparalleled expertise.

Within The Wiseman’s collection, two remarkable whiskeys await discerning palates: The Wiseman Bourbon and The Wiseman Rye. The Wiseman Bourbon, a recipient of double gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in both 2022 and 2023, features delicate citrus notes and nuanced oak undertones. Its irresistible charm unfolds through a sweet caramel bouquet and a comforting allspice warmth, crafting a harmonious symphony of flavours that elegantly dance on the palate.

For those who relish more intense spirits, The Wiseman Rye beckons with open arms. Earning its accolade as a San Francisco World Spirits Competition Gold winner in 2022, this Kentucky straight rye whiskey exudes the enticing aroma of freshly baked rye bread, enhanced by a hint of caramel and cinnamon. Its bold persona extends from a robust palate to a gentle whisper of walnut, promising an extraordinary sensory journey. Both these bottles can be purchased online through The Whiskey List.
