When the opportunity for great adventure comes along, we don’t shy away from it.
Trapper’s Oath is the result of one such chosen journey in which we worked with a
Canadian rye whiskey that was aged extensively. Bringing the barrels to our Sierra Nevada mountain perch, we finished the whiskey in stout beer casks
that originally aged our Hinterhaus bourbon whiskey. Its exceptionally long aging time
creates a complex whiskey that exhibits classic rye spice upfront which develops into
a creamy and slightly bitter middle before giving way to a lingering chocolate-covered-espresso-bean conclusion. As always, we present this whiskey naturally (non-chill
filtered and no color added) to keep the integrity of this extraordinary rye whiskey.

Hinterhaus is named in honor of the hinterland at our doorstep - the vast Sierra Nevada wilderness that has long beckoned explorers and adventurers to this breathtaking mountain range. Our spirits are born beneath the long shadows and rustling needles of tall trees using fresh mountain water that flows just beyond our doors before bottling at our 4000 ft perch. We are proudly family operated, and we collaborate with our neighbors to source local ingredients and casks. Every spirit we produce reflects the pristine region we call home. Enjoy a taste of the Sierra with us, and we raise a dram to those who carve their own path.
