Dallas-Fort Worth-based whiskey producer, Oak & Eden has announced the re-release of their prized seasonal whiskey, Bourbon & Brew, which took home a Double Gold medal at San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020. Bourbon & Brew is a combination of two beloved libations. Taking the creamy sweetness of Oak & Eden Bourbon whiskey, finished with the depth & richness found in West Oak Coffee’s cold brew coffee, Bourbon & Brew marries together this unlikely, completely necessary duo.
Oak & Eden Whiskey has pioneered a patented process called “In-Bottle Finishing,” where they place a 5” long spiral-cut piece of wood, called the Spire, into their fully-aged bottle of whiskey, imparting new flavors and characteristics to the whiskey that wouldn’t be achieved in a single barrel alone. Bourbon & Brew begins with Oak & Eden’s five-time gold medal-winning Bourbon whiskey (60% corn, 36% rye, 4% malted barley), which is then finished inside the bottle with a French Oak spire that had previously soaked in West Oak Coffee’s Delagua Colombian cold brew coffee, giving a delicate, sweet, dark chocolate & coffee finish, unlike anything else.
West Oak Coffee, based in Denton, TX, is one of the premier names in the craft coffee world, roasting some of the finest coffees found in America. Oak & Eden collaborated with this Denton-based roaster/coffee shop for the production of Bourbon & Brew due to their award-winning recognition in the industry, as well as their philanthropic approach to sourcing their coffee. They have gone above & beyond in supporting and paying above fair wage to coffee farms throughout Colombia, Thailand, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Indonesia, Burundi, and El Salvador.
“Bourbon & Brew has been a unanimous crowd pleaser among our fans and the industry alike,” says Joe Giildenzopf, cofounder and CEO of Oak & Eden. “We were so thrilled to have Bourbon & Brew receive one of the industry’s most coveted awards in taking home the Double Gold at San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and we are humbled to partner with West Oak Coffee to bring this seasonal back to life.”
Oak & Eden has taken home 26 Gold & Double Gold awards since 2019, and has been named among the Top 10 Whiskies Made in the U.S. by Best Products, one of the Spirits Business’ Top 50 Innovative New Spirits, and has been included on Top 10 whiskey lists by publishers such as Forbes, Wide Open Eats, Brobible, UPROXX, and many others.
Bourbon & Brew is available for sale across most of the 22 states that Oak & Eden distributes to, and is also available for sale online at shop.oakandeden.com.
