We love supporting local companies who’s products are a natural fit with our whiskeys. This cocktail is the perfect example of a match made in heaven. We used Berkeley-based Shrub & Co.’s Peach Shrub in our Bourbon Sweet Iced Tea to offer sweetness, along with a touch of fruitiness and subtle acidity provided by the apple cider vinegar base in the shrub. Shrub & Co. products are available at the distillery tasting room for purchase.

About this whiskey: Our take on American Whiskey starts with American yellow corn and wheat as the secondary grain. This creates a delicate and refined bourbon with a smooth and mellow flavor. Aged in new, charred American oak no less than one year and blended with whiskeys up to two years, this is California’s Bourbon Whiskey. Drink it neat, or in a classic Whiskey Sour.
