MAKER'S NOTES Bourbon is known the world over as the quintessential American spirit. Our Sierra Bourbon is a nod to the intrepid settlers that brought our country westward, embodying the spirit of the trailblazers before us. The intensity and bold nature of our forefathers is perfectly encapsulated in our double barreled Sierra Bourbon.
STYLE Sierra Bourbon is a full bodied, intense, and bold expression. Bourbon is made from corn, rye, and barley, aged in brand new American White Oak. We age our bourbon here in Truckee, California, at 5,982 feet of elevation. We then finish our bourbon by transferring it to a second new American Oak barrel, intensifying the oak and deepening the flavor 6-8 months prior to bottling.
ROOTED IN THE PAST We stand on the shoulders of others Old Trestle began as a group of friends in Truckee, California who believed that the world's best whiskey had yet to be created. We take lessons from those that have come before us and look forward to create new traditions. Rooted in whiskey but today offering our Gins and Vodka, with more expressions to come as we grow.
As Truckee's first distillery in over 100 years, we are bringing the science and art of distilling back to the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Aroma: The sweetness from the corn comes through with hints of honey, caramel, and vanilla. The oak backbone shines through to balance the sweetness.
Flavor: Sweet notes (cereal, corn, brown sugar), balanced by the rye spice (black peppercorn, coffee), and intense barrel character (tannin, vanilla, dark fruit/cherry, pecan).
Finish: Smooth and finishes a bit on the dry side.
