Redwood Empire Whiskey has today announced the launch of the Small Lot Series. The brand’s dedication to pushing boundaries in whiskey production means that these bottlings will embody an experimental approach. 

The first bottlings in the series are as follows: 

  • Foggy Burl Single Malt Whiskey: Made from just 27 barrels of 100% malted barley whiskey and using 7 different types of barley. Bottled at 99 proof. Tasting notes include dark chocolate and caramel. Named for the tallest tree ever measured, Foggy Burl, in Redwood National Park. 
  • Devil’s Tower High Rye Bourbon: Made from a mash bill comprising 2% malt, 45% rye, 51% corn, and 2% wheat. Bottled at 99 proof from 25 barrels. A robust and viscous mouthfeel with spicy and sweet notes. Named after a tree in the Redwood National Park, Devil’s Tower, which stands at 340 feet. 
  • Screaming Titan Wheated Bourbon: Made from a mashbill of at least 30% wheat and bottled from hand-selected 5 year old barrels. The wheat content highlights honey and floral nights with a lighter mouthfeel. 

Of the new releases, Master Distiller Jeff Duckhorn said “[t]he Small Lot Series is a testament to our passion for whiskey making and our desire to share unique expressions with discerning drinkers. Each whiskey in this series is a result of meticulous attention to detail, from grain selection and distillation to barrel aging and blending. We are excited to see how whiskey enthusiasts and newcomers alike react to these exceptional spirits.” 

A limited number of Foggy Burl and Devil’s Tower bottles are available on Redwood Empire Whiskey’s website. Screaming Titan is expected to be retailed in March 2024.
