What is Whiskey Inspired?
Whiskey is pretty great. We believed it could be better. After our whiskey is distilled and aged traditionally, we add a twist; a hand-placed, seasoned and toasted spire of wood that imparts a unique and aromatic finish to every bottle. The spire perfects our creation, imbuing a deeper, richer taste and producing a truly inspired whiskey. We hope it will inspire you to creation, too.
Thank God for
Bourbon & Spire
Bourbon is pretty perfect: made from a corn mash, distilled to create a nascent, clear, pure spirit known as “white dog.” The white dog is then placed into newly charred American White Oak barrels for 2 years to give our Bourbon it’s unique color and flavor. We follow the rules to the letter, on our honor. Our product is true to its name.
If this was all we did, we’d have a pretty good thing on our hands. But we perfect our spirit a bit more with a twist: a spire of American Oak, masterfully cut and carefully fired to a medium toast. Hand placed in every bottle, it "in-bottle finishes" our Bourbon, imparting sweet, fruity notes and hints of honey to our version of this all-American Bourbon whiskey.
The addition of our spire to finish our whiskey is completely unique to Oak & Eden. In fact, the process used to produce our spire is patented and our innovative in-bottle finishing technique is patent pending.

Rye & Spire
Like all rye whiskeys, ours starts with a mash-bill of exceptional rye, masterfully distilled and then aged in charred new American oak barrels. Time does its work, the angels take their share, and what is left is a spicy, fruity spirit, drier and full of body — distinct, distinguished and delicious.
When Oak & Eden rye enters the bottle, it takes a turn; a turn for the better. To each vessel we add a charred oak spire, meticulously crafted and forged in fire, adding more spice, rich notes of caramel, and deep and flavorful hints of smoke and coffee, accentuating this imbibable masterpiece.

Bourbon & Vine
We start with whiskey, bourbon whiskey, distilled from corn, rye and barley. We age our whiskey for two years in new American charred oak barrels, which produces a rich, deep and sweet, yet slightly spicy spirit. Exceptional on its own, but our work has just begun. Now we sanctify this spirit with wood.
Most often used to age wine, we use French Oak to breath new life and inspiration into our whiskey. At bottling, we add a 5 inch long spiral cut piece of French Oak. We call this our "Spire". This spire is not only exceptional due to it species of origin, it is exceptional because we rest it in cabernet sauvignon for 4 weeks before allowing it to rest in our bottle, finishing our whiskey. The combination of American bourbon whiskey, finished with a French Oak spire that has been influenced with deep, rich, red wine creates an inspired elixir that is sweet, fruity and simply remarkable.
Fire and heat are used to toast our French oak spire, extracting botanicals and flavor expressions that are imparted to our bourbon and in-bottle finishing our spirit. Combining sweet bourbon, with rich, deep cabernet and French oak, produces a creative whiskey experience that must be imbibed to fully appreciate.

Rye & Rumba
Inspired by a life on the waves, Rye & Rumba begins 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.
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.

Rahr Soaked Malted Oak
In a collaboration between Oak & Eden and Rahr & Sons Brewery, we proudly present Rahr Soaked Malted Oak. We begin with Oak & Eden Bourbon whiskey — the same base bourbon as is in our Bourbon & Spire and Bourbon & Vine. We then soak a heavily toasted American Oak spire in Rahr & Sons Iron Thistle Scottish Ale before introducing it into the bottle. 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.

Rahr Soaked Hopped Oak
In a collaboration between Oak & Eden and Rahr & Sons Brewery, we proudly present Rahr Soaked Hopped Oak. We begin with Oak & Eden Rye whiskey — the same base rye as is in our Rye & Spire and Rye & Rumba. We then soak a lightly toasted American Oak spire in Rahr & Sons Dadgum IPA before introducing it into the bottle. 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.
