TWO WORLDS COLLIDE

 

Born in Northern California, raised in Southern California, our founder Seth has California running through his blood.  Enamored with Kentucky, and loyal to home, he combined his two favorite states into one award-winning bottle of whiskey. Distilled in Owensboro Kentucky - this Straight Bourbon whiskey is finished with 80% Central Coast Cabernet barrel staves, and 20% French Oak staves. The charred virgin French oak gives a common character found in the wine, while also rounding the sweet dark fruit flavors bleeding from the freshly dumped wine barrels. The marshmallow forward, cherry center, and oak-heavy finish lingers, while remaining balanced and approachable. As our Founder says:

 

"California Oak was created as a bourbon that could seamlessly bring the wine drinker into the world of whiskey. This is a step into our world and a every day sipping whiskey made to be drank neat, and often."

  • 70% Corn

Broken Barrel Bourbon features a unique blend of corn, rye, and barley that makes it perfectly balanced to infuse. We partnered with an incredible world-class Kentucky Bourbon distillery to select the finest bourbon base for our products. The bourbon is aged a minimum of one year (it has to be) to be called a Kentucky Bourbon, which also ensures a specific quality we're looking for before incorporate our Oak Bill™. 

WHAT IS THE OAK BILL?

After a minimum of one year in new charred oak barrels, the bourbon is dumped to steel tanks, where each batch of Broken Barrel is hit with new French oak staves, ex-bourbon barrel staves, and a blend of ex-sherry cask staves.

 

Rich, complex, layered and beyond beautiful, Broken Barrel boldly goes where other whiskies won’t - and we wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Mash Bill:

Oak Bill™

  • 40% French Oak Staves

  • 40% Ex-Bourbon Cask Staves

  • 20% Sherry Cask Staves

A note about Staves - there is a tremendous amount of surface area when using staves to age and flavor a whiskey - much more than merely using the inside of a barrel. There are several more surfaces making contact with the liquid, each adding its own character and flavor.

Rye | Re-imagined

 

This Rye whiskey is distilled in Owensboro Kentucky - just like our bourbon. However, it is unlike any rye whiskey you’ve ever tasted. Charred French oak gives a woody body to the spirit, while ex-bourbon (still soaked from the previous tenant) and ex-sherry cask staves all join forces to create a fiery, yet balanced and smooth taste and finish. We use the same proprietary Oak Bill™ to embolden this rye whiskey and give it an uncommon and untraditional taste and character.

 

Call it sacrilegious, call it untraditional, call it heresy—we won’t be offended. But trust us. Once you taste it, you may begin to question the tradition yourself.
