Bourbon de Naranja Re-Release on October 26
You all loved it so much that we brought it back! Our Straight Bourbon Whiskey finished in Orange-Infused Sherry Barrels returns with new labels.
You might remember our Bourbon de Naranja from its limited release in 2021. It features our 4-year bourbon finished 6 months in orange sherry barrels from Spain.
A finish in these unique barrels adds notes of citrus and cinnamon to our bourbon’s classic caramel and vanilla aroma. Bottled at 100 proof. Available at the distillery beginning October 26. Pick up a bottle (or two!) of this limited release just in time for the holidays.
Bourbon de Naranja received Best in Class Gold at Whiskies of the World 2022.
These barrels have been on quite the journey before coming to us. In fact, a barrel broker explained that they’re “worth their weight in gold from a cask-finishing perspective”. The staves began in Pennsylvania and were made with American White Oak (Appalachian), before being shipped to Spain and constructed in a cooperage in Jerez. Then they were “seasoned” with sacrificial sherry for a year and placed into a Solera System for many years, which is the traditional Spanish technique of fractional aging sherry. After years of sherry contact, the barrels lost their tannin content and eventually developed deep, complex flavors (creme caramel, toffee, dried fruits, and hazelnuts) and aromatics (leather, sandalwood, roasted nuts, and exotic spices). In the meantime, the orange flavoring essence was created. This was done by macerating orange peels from Seville in wine alcohol for 6+ months until the particular orange notes were extracted. The orange peels were separated from the wine alcohol after the maceration was complete. The orange flavoring essence, grapes harvested from Huelva County, and alcohol were all combined together to create the Vino Naranja (orange wine), also known as orange-infused sherry. The orange-infused sherry was then placed into the barrels and aged for a minimum of two years.
Then, these barrels were sent to us. We added our 4-year straight bourbon whiskey to them and let it age for 6 months in our Wisconsin rackhouse.
