Redwood Empire Whiskey expands its portfolio with Batch No. 002 of Redwood Empire Rocket Top Straight Rye Whiskey and Redwood Empire Grizzly Beast Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Whiskey lovers can rejoice in this much anticipated second batch that continues to excite consumers around the growing portfolio of expressions that convey a sense of place and inspire a reverence for nature.

Each of the new Redwood Empire Whiskey Bottled-in-Bond expressions received 95 points from The Tasting Panel magazine and its sister publication, The SOMM Journal. These high ratings underscore the distillery’s commitment to pioneering a new category of California whiskey that emphasizes creativity, fresh and local ingredients, and environmental responsibility.

“It’s an honor to bring our second batch of Bottled in Bond-designated whiskey to life,” Master Distiller Jeff Duckhorn explains. “The craft and complexity in selecting the raw ingredients started in spring 2017. No two mash bills were identical, and that results in exceptional balance and depth of flavor.”

The whiskeys were produced under the strict tenets of the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897, which serves as an assurance of quality and authenticity. Produced 100% in-house, these grain-to-glass offerings are the purest expression of Redwood Empire’s craft.

“On the heels of the remarkable response received from the launch of our inaugural edition, we’re proud to add the Spring 2017 vintage to our Bottled in Bond series,” said Founder and Chairman Derek Benham, Purple Brands.

Redwood Empire controlled production from grain to glass for these two distinctive whiskeys. Duckhorn and his team delivered complexity and character through careful and thoughtful decisions, from the selection of grains and unique mash bills to the significant cuts of heads and tails during distillation. The temperate weather conditions of the Northern California coast allow a slow, even flavor extraction from the barrels throughout the year, which imbues Redwood Empire whiskeys with their signature style.

Best enjoyed neat, or on a large rock, Redwood Empire Whiskey’s Bottled in Bond collection is available for a limited time at select retailers in the U.S.
