Another private selection you'll be swooning over in no time! This is a wonderfully complex whiskey and at 14-years it is showing an array of character. Opening with aromas of dark fruit, you’ll find cedar and clove leaping from the glass. Brown sugar, sweet oak, meringue, cinnamon, and vanilla bean engage the palate and lead to a spicy, warm, mouth-coating finish. 
We couldn’t resist this exceptional 14-year cask strength offering from our friends over in Graton. Redwood Empire Whiskey is not just a product of its environment, it’s a part of it. This upstart Sonoma County distillery takes their inspiration and name from this beautiful, historic region and has been producing some fantastic gins and vodkas under the label Benham’s for a few years whilst their rye whiskeys and bourbon have been patiently aging. This is the modus operandi for many a small distillery who need to get their feet wet. This story is a tad different though. The team views naturalist John Muir as their guide and protecting the environment has become their mantra having built sustainability into everything they do. Their custom micro-column still allows single pass distillations, preserving both water and energy. They send the nutrient rich spent mash to local farmers who use it as feed for livestock. And they have a state-of-the-art water reclamation facility which assures only the purest water is used in their production. Lastly, for every bottle sold they plant a tree. Have a dram, save the Redwoods – sounds like a great deal to us!
