Bordeaux Finish

When the Rye Whiskey is ready, then comes the delicate art of finishing. The goal of wine barrel finishing is to gently enhance the spicy and flavorful character of the whiskey without overpowering it. The barrels used for Coalition Whiskey were originally maturing some of the most-awarded Bordeaux wines for around 18 months, picking up their distinctive flavors and textures. When the barrels are emptied, they have an inner layer enriched with the wine’s flavor components.

Ludwig Vanneron carefully and painstakingly inspects each and every barrel, looking for only the barrels that will impart exactly the flavors and textures which will perfectly match with our 100% Rye Whiskey. With his deep relationships with local wine chateaux and cooperages, he knows exactly where to go looking for only the finest barrels. Examining barrels` prior history records is key. Extensive visual and smell inspections are required to unearth the right Margaux and Pauillac red wine and Sauternes sweet white wine barrels. It takes the inspection of nearly 150 barrels to find the perfect 25 to finish Coalition Whiskey.

When the barrels are filled again, this time with Rye Whiskey, the intriguing transformation process begins. Up to six months later, Coalition Whiskey is born.
