Our solar-aged, straight bourbon whiskey finished in cognac casks starts with well-aged Laws’ flagship Four Grain bourbon. We migrate this aged whiskey to various-sized cognac casks, adding flavors and complexity from the French oak. These casks are then married in a 50-year-old, 60 hectoliter (1,600 gallons) cognac foeder for secondary solar-style aging. Every year we harvest just a portion of the mellowing whiskey, immediately topping up the vessel with new cognac finished four grain. This solar cycle creates a complex spirit with bright upfront bourbon flavor followed by nuanced cognac and a luxurious, rich finish.
