Widow Jane: the Vaults is a limited release of our rarest & oldest bourbons. Hand selected from our rickhouse, we’re quite excited to release our most hedonistic bourbon to date.
Our 2021 release combines 15-17 year old bourbons that have been carefully selected from our stocks housed in Red Hook by our very own Lisa Wicker. The whiskey was finished in unique Adirondack Oak casks coopered with 42 month air-seasoned wood (50% longer than the standard 1-2 years). The extended outdoor maturation of the staves softens tannins and greenness in the wood yielding a one-of-a-kind flavor profile influenced by each season. The result is an intense whiskey with hints of cream, smoke, and spice.
“Blending these older barrels for the Vaults is a privilege. They are old and beautiful on their own but are elevated when combined. Influencing them with extraordinary oak creates a one of a kind combination. Pour slow and let it open up.” – Lisa Wicker, President & Head Distiller
