"Every fall, we do a Harvest Release, and back in 2017, our release was our flagship Bourbon finished with Applewood Staves. Of all our releases, Woodinville Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished with Toasted Applewood Staves has been one of our most popular – so, this year we're bringing back Nationally," says Woodinville Whiskey co-founder, Brett Carlile.
After the whiskey was fully mature, staves of toasted applewood were added. The finishing process adds depth and richness with aromas of apple and berry on the nose and palate on top of the traditional bourbon notes of rich caramel, dark chocolate and vanilla bean with a sweet lingering finish.
Woodinville Whiskey is a craft distillery founded by two best friends from the Woodinville area, Brett Carlile and Orlin Sorensen, under the mentorship of industry icon, the late David Pickerell. Woodinville is Washington's largest craft distillery, handcrafting its products from 100% locally sourced grains from the Omlin Family Farm in Quincy, Washington.
