Here’s a whiskey that demands an open mind (and an open mouth). It’s a modern experiment based on historical precedent that puts Father Time in the back seat and produces an aged whiskey with a lot less aging. A happy side effect of their proprietary system is that it uses less than 3% of the wood, 1% of the energy and a fraction of the water required by traditional barrel aging. Bespoken’s emphasis is on taste, product, sustainability and value over tradition. The result is undeniably (if surprisingly) delicious. If you can get past the urge to yell “get off my lawn!”, you can join Derek Jeter (an early investor) in getting on board with the future.
