Woodinville Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
2016 Craft Whiskey of the Year
American Distilling Institute Craft Spirits Awards
This truly small-batch bourbon starts with traditionally grown corn, rye and malted barley. All of the staple grains are cultivated exclusively for the distillery on the Omlin Family farm in Quincy, Washington. The grains are mashed, distilled, and barreled in 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 creme brulee and spice cabinet, as well as notes of rich caramel, dark chocolate, and vanilla bean on the palate with a sweet, lingering finish.
