Up and coming California based craft distillery, Redwood Empire, is making a big mark in the whiskey world with three new, distinct offerings. Following in the footsteps of companies like High West and Barrel Craft Spirits, Redwood is sourcing and blending whiskey, but they are also beginning to incorporate some of their own product as well. According to Redwood Empire, “The Northern California Coast is a unique place, one of the few in the world where giant redwood trees grow. A place of inspiration and renewal. This same cool climate makes it a perfect place to produce sublime whiskey. Aging barrels here allows for a slow and even extraction of flavor, producing a whiskey of exceptional balance and complexity.”
Lets dive right in to this Redwood Empire Whiskey Review and discuss their three main offerings, as well as a single barrel finished whiskey in their portfolio.
