Bespoken Spirits is a highly awarded relatively new operation that uses an innovative method to create some truly remarkable spirits at a great deal. Unwilling to sacrifice quality for antiquated tradition, bespoken spirits use a “craft maturation” method that uses less than 3% of the wood, 1% of the energy and just a fraction of the water required by traditional barrel aging methods, yielding a line of unique spirits that are both sustainably crafted and full of character. According to Bespoken Spirits; “Rather than putting spirit in a barrel and waiting passively for nature to take its course, we instill the barrel into the spirit, actively controlling the process that enhances aroma, color and taste.” Their 100-proof rye whiskey is brimming with unique flavors while their straight bourbon whiskey drinks like one of your favorite approachable classics.
