Beer, meet whiskey.

Oak & Eden proudly introduces our third small batch release, a product collaboration with Rahr & Sons Brewery out of Fort Worth, TX. This time, however, we’re not just releasing a single whiskey, but a pair. Say hello to Rahr Soaked Malted Oak and Hopped Oak. These releases are as big and bold as the Texans who made them.

the Spirit

Bourbon Whiskey

Our bourbon begins with a remarkably smooth combination of corn, rye and barley. Once distilled, we age our bourbon for two years in new barrels made of American oak producing a rich, deep yet sweet spirit that is a pleasure to imbibe. We bottle our bourbon at 90 proof.

Wood

American Oak

Now that our masterpiece is bottled, the work of finishing begins. Unlike traditional finished whiskey, we do not rest our whiskey in a secondary cask, but finish our whiskey "in-bottle". We do this by resting the cask, or more precisely, a spiral cut piece of wood in our bottle. In the Bourbon & Iron Thistle, we selected a spire cut from American Oak, due to the density of the wood and botanicals it imparts, creating a sweet, creamy finish.

Fire

Heavy Toast

Before soaking in Rahr & Sons Iron Thistle Scottish Ale, we expose the spire to a significant amount of fire, charring and caramelizes the wood, producing a charcoal filter and finishing agent for our spirit.

infusion

Rahr & Sons Iron Thistle Scottish Ale

Whiskey on the front, beer on the finish. The unique combination of vanilla, coconut, and honey coming from the bourbon, mixed with the depth and character of Rahr & Sons’ Iron Thistle Scottish Ale produces a rich flavor of whiskey on the nose and palate with beer on the finish. Pleasant & balanced.

the Spirit

Rye Whiskey

We begin this expression with our award-winning rye whiskey. Spicy and yet surprising mellow, 95% Straight Rye whiskey is our foundation, aged for 2 years in new, charred American Oak barrels. While spicy, our rye whiskey is not characterized as “hot” or “punchy,” but rather smooth and full of unique characteristics.

Wood

American Oak

Now that our masterpiece is bottled, the work of finishing begins. Unlike traditional finished whiskey, we do not rest our whiskey in a secondary cask, but finish our whiskey "in-bottle". We do this by resting the cask, or more precisely, a spiral cut piece of wood in our bottle. In the Rye & Dadgum IPA, we selected a spire cut from American Oak, due to the density of the wood and botanicals it imparts, creating a sweet, creamy finish.

Fire

Light Toast

Fire and heat are used to toast our spires, extracting botanicals and flavor expressions that are imparted to our bourbon and finishing our spirit. A light toast gives the whiskey a sweeter profile.

infusion

Rahr & Sons Dadgum IPA

Full of hops, but never overpowering. Rahr & Sons Brewery prides its award-winning Dadgum IPA on being an approachable, balanced IPA, brewed for all to enjoy. Infused into Oak & Eden Rye, this expression gathers a wide array of flavors that embody a character as bold as you.
