Middle West

OYO Oloroso Wheat Whiskey

Posted 03 October 2017

Middle West Spirits produces a range of whiskies under their ‘OYO’ brand. Pronounced ‘Oh why oh’, is sounds rather like the state of Ohio where they’re based, but the Internet suggests that the origin is actually closer to the Native American articulation of ‘the river’. Founded by Brady Konya and Ryan Long, the distillery focusses on showcasing the wide varieties of grain that are native to Ohio alongside more traditional corn sourced from Kentucky.
