The richness of our American Single Malt Whiskey is strengthened by our immediate access to fresh, once-used barrels from a variety of sources, including our own wine and Port casks. The complexity of The QuintEssential develops as we add each unique finishing cask in the proper proportion. There is an element of interest or surprise being incorporated into the overall blend with each addition from our arsenal of complex casks. Cheers!

Rated 5 Out of 5 – The Whiskey Wash
Made from 100% Malted barley
Distilled entirely at one distillery
Mashed, Distilled, and Matured in the United States of America
Matured in Oak casks of a capacity not exceeding 700 liters
Distilled to no more than 160 (U.S.) Proof (80% Alcohol by Volume)
Bottled at 80 (U.S.) Proof or more (40% alcohol by Volume)
After handcrafting our American Single Malt from pure malted barley, we then twice distill to 148º and cut it to 120º.
We age our American Single Malt whiskey in American Oak barrels for a minimum of 2 years.
After aging, we transfer the whiskey to various finishing casks for an additional 2 years.
We strategically marry various finishing casks together in our Solera Vat. The vat was filled about nine years ago, creating what we call our Mother Batch.
When we bottle The QuintEssential, we take a small portion of whiskey from the vat, before refilling. This results in a slow evolution from one batch to the next.
