Whiskey. With a twist.
Oak & Eden In-Bottle Finished Whiskey is a first of its kind, pioneering a patent-pending technique called in-bottle finishing™, where we place a 5” long spiral cut piece of wood into every bottle of our fully aged whiskey. This technique “inspires” our whiskey, breathing new life, flavors, and aromas that couldn’t be achieved in a single barrel alone.
We don’t want to assume everyone knows what “finished” or “double barrel” whiskey is, so let’s familiarize ourselves with the concept as a whole before going any further.
While many may be familiar with the process of distilling and aging whiskey, few people are familiar with the concept of finishing whiskey. Here's how it goes. Finished whiskey is a procedure that some whiskeys undergo where a spirit is aged in a barrel of a particular wood origin and then is transferred to (or finished in) a barrel of a different origin. Typically, the first barrel is made of American Oak. The second barrel may be one that had previously aged another spirit, fortified wine, beer, rum, or virtually any other consumable liquid that can introduce new flavors and botanicals to the whiskey beyond its original profile.
This concept led our founders to test new concepts in which they could finish whiskey in a way that is innovative, yet also creates a significantly better whiskey. After years of research and product design, they developed a patented technique called "in-bottle finishing".
It’s the genesis of everything we do.

What is the spire?
So, what exactly is the Oak & Eden spire? It is a 5” long spiral-cut piece of wood, made out of botanically rich woods, such as American Oak, French Oak, Maple, Cherry or Ash. Once the spires are cut, they are then toasted or charred to various degrees in order to extract different and unique flavors to impart to the whiskey. The lighter the toast, the more mellow the tannins in the wood, extracting the natural sugars to impart a sweet, vanilla note. A charred wood, however, ends up becoming an activated carbon filter, which can help remove sulfur compounds from the whisky, making a smoother drink, imparting flavors of caramel, smoke, tobacco and plenty of spicy accents.
