In-bottle finishing from Oak & Eden

This Indie Producer Invented a New Way to Finish Whiskey


October 3, 2018 Briefings By

There are several ways whiskey makers go about bottling spirits, but few are as thorough and innovative as “in-bottle finishing” — a method that takes a wooden spire and places it within the bottle of whiskey to continue finishing it outside the barrel. It is a novel, patent-pending approach that Oak & Eden has all but perfected.

The whiskey maker uses seasoned and toasted spirals of wood cut from the same species of casks and places them inside the bottle. Not only is the resulting whiskey different to nearly everything else you’ll find on the liquor store shelf, but every bottle of Oak & Eden whiskey carries a unique, hand-finished touch.
