a blend of five-year-old Kentucky and four-year-old Indiana corn whiskeys married with rare Mizunara Oak from Japan;
Broken Barrel Mizunara is a true tale of East meets West. This artisanal whiskey blends American corn with Japanese mizunara oak staves. Both are matured together for a rare yet balanced combination.
Mizunara, literally translates to “water oak.” This oak has become increasingly popular with the global growth of whiskey, and the majority of this oak is now sourced from Mongolia. It has a high moisture content and is much more porous than other commonly used oaks for barrel making. Making barrels out of Mizunara is quite challenging according to many coopers, as the porous properties of the casks are prone to leaking.
Our whiskey, as a result of using this most interesting oak for our Oak Bill™ resulted in a rich, harmonious blend that is both quintessentially American in sweetness and character, while still notably Japanese-styled in its mellow smooth finish. Broken Barrel Mizunara Whiskey is exceptionally flavorful and unforgettably clean tasting - a whiskey meant to be sipped, savored, and most importantly - shared.
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.
