Blinking Owl California Straight Bourbon Whisky
California Straight Small Batch Wheated Bourbon - 45% ABV [90 Proof]
We are proud to say that Blinking Owl whiskies are some of the FIRST EVER to be legally distilled in Orange County, California. Cheers to a sip of history!
We begin with organic California corn, malted barley, and some of Santa Ana’s award-winning water to formulate the base mash for our straight Wheated Bourbon whiskey. After distillation we allow it to age for a minimum of 2 years in New American pre-char toasted then charred white oak casks. Once a barrel is filled it is left to rest in our barrel warehouse.
Our Wheated Bourbon is markedly soft and delicate whiskey with a sweeter quality that drinks more mature than its age. It has notes of vanilla, caramel, and baking spices, that play out very delicately on the palette. What we are serving currently in the tasting room (what you are tasting now) is our 2 year old Wheated Bourbon that will continue to develop many additional complex flavors as time moves forward.
Blinking Owl Wheated Bourbon was awarded a Silver medal in the 2019 Sunset International Spirits Competition.
Mash Bill: 60% corn, 30% wheat, 10% barley
