While other rare Weller bourbons have fetched serious prices on the secondary market and at liquor stores after significant markups beyond MSRP, Weller Millennium sets a new benchmark with an MSRP of $7,500, making it the highest-priced Weller whiskey ever released by Buffalo Trace.

However, Weller Millennium technically isn’t classified as a bourbon.

Weller Millennium is expected to be released in extremely limited quantities, with only hundreds of bottles available worldwide.

Why Millennium is Not a Bourbon

No one said rare and expensive American whiskeys had to be a Bourbon.

Weller Millennium is a blend of wheat bourbon and wheat whiskeys, which includes 51% wheat in its mash bill.

This composition means it doesn’t meet the legal definition of bourbon, which requires at least 51% corn in the mash bill. This unique blend highlights the distillery’s commitment to exploring the aging potential of wheat.
