Try a New Whiskey —

International Whiskey Day is the perfect opportunity to try a new whiskey. And boy, do we have a treat for you! Our newest release, 4 Grain & Maple, is the perfect intersection between four grain bourbon and maple syrup. We begin the process with a four grain bourbon made from 55% corn, 18% rye, 22% wheat, 5% malted barley, then aged in charred American White Oak barrels. After aging, we add a twist – an American Oak spire, seasoned, toasted, and infused with maple syrup, imparting sweet, rich flavors, and notes of maple syrup, butterscotch and cinnamon. Purchase your own bottle of 4 Grain & Maple here.

Host a Whiskey Tasting Party —

If you're a whiskey enthusiast, why not host a whiskey tasting party with your friends? You can ask everyone to bring a bottle of their favorite whiskey to share. Set up a tasting station with glasses, water, and snacks to cleanse the palate between tastings. Encourage everyone to share their thoughts and opinions on each whiskey. It's a fun way to learn about different types of whiskey and bond with friends over shared favorites (cough cough, Oak & Eden Whiskey 😉).

Make a Whiskey Cocktail —

Whiskey is a versatile spirit that can be used to make a variety of delicious cocktails. Whether you prefer a classic Old Fashioned or a modern Whiskey Sour, there's a cocktail out there for everyone. Mosey on over to our recipes page and get inspired to make a cocktail at home!

Pair Whiskey with Food —

Whiskey can be a great accompaniment to food. Try pairing your favorite whiskey with different types of food to see which combinations work best. For example, a smoky Rye might pair well with grilled meats, while a smooth Wheated Bourbon might complement a sweet dessert. The world is your oyster, so maybe pair it with our Bourbon & Vine?

Whether you're enjoying a glass of whiskey on your own or celebrating with friends, there are many ways to enjoy this special day. So raise a glass and cheers to International Whiskey Day!
