Born in Northern California, raised in Southern California, our founder Seth has California running through his blood. Enamored with Kentucky, and loyal to home, he combined his two favorite states into one award-winning bottle of whiskey. Distilled in Owensboro Kentucky - this Straight Bourbon whiskey is finished with 80% Central Coast Cabernet barrel staves, and 20% French Oak staves. The charred virgin French oak gives a common character found in the wine, while also rounding the sweet dark fruit flavors bleeding from the freshly dumped wine barrels. The marshmallow forward, cherry center, and oak-heavy finish lingers, while remaining balanced and approachable. As our Founder says:
"California Oak was created as a bourbon that could seamlessly bring the wine drinker into the world of whiskey. This is a step into our world and a every day sipping whiskey made to be drank neat, and often."

This story all began in a garage. In 2012, young and creative founder Seth Benhaim decided the world was in desperate need of a spirit that offered a natural and simple process that anyone could understand. After experiencing the magic of infused spirits while on vacation, he realized the market lacked such product. So naturally, he decided to be the one to create it...and he did. One year and a few hundred samples of vodka infused with only natural, real ingredients later, Seth launched Infuse Spirits. Just three months later, Seth (who was then 25 years old) became the youngest brand owner to ever win Best-in-Show and Double-Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Since then, Infuse has continued to work tirelessly and passionately to ensure every bottle of Infuse Spirits, whether its vodka, whiskey, or bitters, is balanced, smooth, and bursting with character and flavor.
