Chinato Barrel Finished Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Bull Run Distilling Co

Our first barrel finishing release was inspired by a Manhattan cocktail using Chinato D’Erbetti, an Italian style sweet vermouth, made by our friends at Cana’s Feast Winery in Carlton, Oregon.

It didn’t take too many more of those Manhattans to convince us that we had to try finishing our Bourbon in their barrels.

The result has been a happy collaboration with us exchanging barrels back and forth each year.

Our Bourbon is finished for up to a year in the Chinato barrels which lends an extra level of dryness and an added herbal complexity.

With a nose of prune, oak and spice, the flavor starts with spice, vanilla and raisin. The finish is long and lingering with notes of raisin, vanilla, spice and oak… and then more raisin.
A match made in heaven for Manhattan cocktails and perfectly pleasurable served alone neat or on the rocks.
Black currant, orange, vanilla and cedar wood.
Better restaurants, bars and retails throughout Massachusetts, Oregon and Washington.
