Fact Sheet

There’s nothing like the classics, and we all have our favorite Whiskey Sour or Old Fashioned recipe, but how do you elevate those tried-and-true cocktails? The answer is simple—take the best of Kentucky bourbon and blend it with the timeless tastes of Napa Valley. Amador Whiskey Co. Double Barrel Wheated Bourbon was born in the rugged grasslands of Kentucky, distilled by Amador Whiskey Co.’s team of specially selected expert distillers. This high-wheated bourbon was first aged three years in new charred American oak barrels, where it took on enticing notes of brown sugar, nuts and hints of baking spices.

Amador Whiskey Co. continues to push the boundaries, offering the savvy whiskey drinker an elevated bourbon by blending the familiar flavors of the south with the spirit of the golden state. Crossing the plains to California, Amador Double Barrel Bourbon landed in the sprawling hills of Napa Valley. It was here that the liquid gold was finished in medium toast French oak Chardonnay barrels for 9 to 12 months. The Chardonnay barrels infuse vanilla flavors and create a creamy mouthfeel that offers a long, satisfying finish.

Born in the bluegrass of Kentucky, raised on the golden hillsides of California, and at home in your glass, Amador Whiskey Co. Double Barrel Wheated bourbon is the very best of two worlds. This copper classic delivers notes of vanilla, caramel, butterscotch and roasted almonds that seamlessly intertwine with hints of honey and tobacco for a rich and full-bodied drink, whether neat, over ice, or in a favorite whiskey cocktail.
