In the beginning.

Where we’ve come from inspires where we’re going.


For all the makers,
we made this for you.

Birthed out of a collective love for creation, innovation, and inspiration, Joe Giildenzopf, Jamie Giildenzopf, and Brad Neathery pioneered a precious technique that would become the lifeblood of Oak & Eden; in-bottle finishing™. By paying homage to the old tradition of finishing whiskey with oak barrels, but cutting them down and giving them a twist, a spiral-cut, toasted and spiced piece of wood came to life. We call it the “spire,” and it gives our whiskey and sanctified, set apart flavor and character. We boldly and humbly give thanks to our Creator, and share our creation with you. May it inspire you to create.

Makers are unique. Purposeful. Raw. Makers are dreamers, visionaries, and captivating. They recognize there's something in them, bigger than them, deliberately placed inside that needs to come out.

We believe in makers so much that we poured our heart & soul into them. Every photo you see and every story you read on our website is of an actual maker, telling their actual story, pursuing their actual craft.  No models or scripts needed.


Here's to the Creator


And here's to the makers — those who are inspired by something so much that they willingly endure long-suffering to refine their craft and make something that lasts. We get it. It's a struggle, long and arduous. That's why we share our creation: amazing whiskey, inspired from within by our spire, enabling our in-bottle finishing, defining our flavor and character, and perfecting our creation. It's a suitable reward for anyone who puts whatever is in them, out there.
