This truly small-batch bourbon starts with traditionally grown corn, rye and malted barley. All staple grains are cultivated exclusively for us Woodinville at the Omlin Family farm in Quincy, Washington. The grains are mashed, distilled, and barreled at the Woodinville distillery, then trucked back over the Cascade Mountains to private barrel houses, where Central Washington’s extreme temperature cycles promote the extraction of natural flavors from the oak. Prior to being coopered, the barrel wood is seasoned in open air, rain, wind, sun, and snow for eighteen months, softening the wood’s harsh tannins. The barrels are then slowly toasted and heavily charred to further enrich the wood’s desirable flavors.
This meticulous process yields a truly hand-crafted spirit with aromas of crème brûlée and spice cabinet, as well as notes of rich caramel, dark chocolate, and vanilla bean on the palate with a sweet, lingering finish.
