Trinchero Family Estates releases its newest spirit, Amador Whiskey Co Double Barrel Bourbon

Posted on July 07, 2015

Trinchero Family Estates is pleased to announce the nationwide release of its newest spirit, Amador Whiskey Co. Double Barrel Bourbon. Named after the two barrel-aging techniques employed in California and Kentucky, the first bottling of this bourbon will debut nationwide this summer.

The national release of the Amador Double Barrel Bourbon compliments Amador Whiskey Company’s Ten Barrels, a limited-edition luxury whiskey with only 10 Barrels, or 686 6-packs, produced every year. “The cocktail culture and demand for quality spirits continues to grow. There was such a high demand for the Amador Whiskey Co. Ten Barrels when it first launched in June, 2014. We listened to feedback from our buyers, and took a classic product that’s consumed around the world and created a distinctive blend that is on-trend, small-batch and uniquely-crafted. The timing was right and we are very proud of the quality in the bottle.” said Dave Derby, senior vice president of marketing for Trinchero Family Estates.

“To make the new Double Barrel Bourbon, we acquired 280 barrels of exceptional Kentucky Bourbon, aged from three-to-ten years in charred New American Oak and transported it to California. We then finished the Double Barrel Bourbon with Trinchero family’s Napa Valley estate wine barrels and bottled at 86.8 proof,” added Derby. “This Kentucky-born, California-raised Bourbon is well-balanced with complex flavors of vanilla, oak, brown sugar and spice. This is the perfect spirit for special occasions.”

The new Amador Whiskey Company Double Barrel has a suggested retail price of $40 for 750mL, and will be available in select on-premise locations and retailers nationwide starting in July, 2015. Signature Cocktails include: Shot Gun, Gold Rush, Manhattan, and the classic Old-Fashioned.
