2017 Harvest Release – Toasted Applewood Finished Bourbon

We are very excited to finally announce the details of our 2017 Harvest Release – Toasted Applewood Finished Bourbon – on Saturday, October 7th at 7am!

We have taken our fully matured 5-year-old straight bourbon whiskey and added toasted Applewood staves to the whiskey. This Applewood “finishing” process adds depth and richness with aromas of apple and berry on the nose and palate on top of the traditional bourbon notes of rich caramel, dark chocolate and vanilla bean, with a sweet, lingering finish.

The first 500 bottles will be packaged in a handmade Applewood crate as seen in this picture and be hand numbered and initialed by the distillers. Price is $69.95 after all taxes. We will kick off the morning with a special homemade Apple Cider and goodies for everyone in line and all those that campout the night before. Thanks and we look forward to seeing everyone for this annual tradition!

  3. I am new to your product and am presently sipping the 90 proof Bourbon purchased at Trader Joe’s this afternoon. I normally don’t drink whiskey but this is exceptional!

    Is there any way to pre order the Applewood edition?
