Chambers Bay Straight Bourbon (11/11/17)

land crafted, ocean aged

 

 

 

Our approach to making whiskey combines a healthy respect for traditional methods with the innovative spirit and natural resources of the Pacific Northwest. All of our bourbon whiskies are crafted grain-to-bottle on premise.

As our flagship spirit, Chambers Bay Straight Bourbon is the core expression of our wheated-bourbon. By using wheat as the secondary grain in our mash bill we produce a sweet bourbon—a flavor profile that pairs well with the salty sea air to which it's exposed during the aging process. As the older sibling of our Greenhorn Bourbon, CBD Straight Bourbon is aged 3+ years in a floating boathouse atop Puget Sound—aged longer atop the water than any whiskey in the World.

 

The Ingredients - local

Truly a locally-crafted bourbon, Greenhorn is made using Cascade mountain water,  the highest-quality sweet yellow corn and soft white wheat from Grant County, Wash., and our own proprietary wild-yeast strain harvested from a local apple orchard. You could say we produce our bourbon yeast-to-bottle.

The Aging Process - hydrokinetic

Harnessing the power of the sea, this bourbon is aged in one of our floating boathouses on Puget Sound. The wave and tidal movement created by the hydrokinetic energy expedites the aging process by increasing the interaction of the spirit and the wood inside our charred new american-oak barrels. The sea also enhances our bourbon with a subtle note of sea salt.

The Result - salted caramel

CBD Straight Bourbon has a sweet caramel nose and a sea-salted caramel/toasted oak flavor profile mature beyond its years.

Flavor Profile

Sea-Salted Caramel & Toffee, with hints of Toasted Oak, Fig, Candied Orange Peel, and Dark Chocolate

 

CBD Straight Bourbon is bottled at 95 Proof (47.5% alc./vol.)
