an oak & Eden small batch whiskey

Rye, with a Caribbean twist.

Oak & Eden is pleased to introduce our second small-batch expression, Rye & Rumba. We start with our award-winning rye whiskey, aged for two years in new American charred oak barrels, producing a rich, deep and sweet, yet slightly spicy spirit. We then add our spire – a 5” long spiral cut piece of American Oak that had soaked in a Caribbean rum for 6 weeks before allowing it to rest in our bottle, finishing our Rye & Rumba whiskey.

 

 
 
 
Oak & Eden Rye & Rumba

the Spirit

Rye Whiskey

Spicy and yet surprising mellow, 95% Straight Rye whiskey is our foundation, aged for 2 years in new, charred American Oak barrels. Next, we add, in-bottle, a Caribbean-Rum soaked Spire of wood to finish our Rye Whiskey and add sweetness, character and complexity. Remarkable if enjoyed neat, or in your favorite cocktail.

Wood

American Oak

Now that our masterpiece is bottled, we begin our inspirational, finishing work. 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. This “inspiration”, or as we call it, our “spire”, is made of American Oak, slightly toasted and precisely crafted to impart sweet notes and balance.

Fire

Heavy Toast

Fire and fire alone are used to char these spires. The intense heat coming from the fire caramelizes the wood, producing a charcoal filter and finishing agent for our spirit.

Caribbean Rum Soaked Oak

Sweet and yet spicy. The unique and artisan combination of sweet Caribbean rum and rye whiskey together produce a whiskey that is a pleasure to drink and a joy to share. Cheers.

 
 

Here’s to a
life lived slow.

 

Rye & Rumba isn’t simply a small batch expression. It’s a mantra. We’ve crafted Rye & Rumba to implore the way we live and recreate. We believe in a life lived slowly and with great intent, so we’ve created a whiskey that celebrates just that. We hope you can live slowly, too.
