Additional Product Info

Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Port Barrels

Aging bourbon in barrels is an art, not a science. Finishing bourbon demands even more talent because you’re imparting additional flavor and character on what is essentially a completed product. We started with an incredibly smooth and rich 6 Year Old Straight Bourbon Whiskey, hand selected by our Master Distiller, Dave Scheurich and then coaxed even more flavor and nuance out of it by aging it a little longer in used port barrels. Throughout the process, Dave routinely pulled samples to ensure the extra aging didn’t overpower the bourbon, but complimented it, adding to the complexity and character.

Why the name Boondocks?

Distilleries need plenty of room to operate and good, abundant water sources. Close proximity to grain supplies and to farmers who were willing to feed the spent mash to their livestock were also a must. Therefore, historically, it was prudent and practical to build distilleries in rural areas…or “the boondocks”. Boondocks sources its whiskeys from distilleries that are, for the most part, outside the city limits or in the boondocks.

Meet Dave

Boondocks Whiskey is brought to you by Whisky Advocate Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Dave Scheurich. And while you may have never heard his name, Dave has helped create some of America’s most recognized whiskeys over the last 40 years.

But all this talk would make Dave blush.

The real audience Dave cares about has enjoyed the drinks he created and has never given a second thought to the artist behind the scenes. And that’s just fine with Dave.

His love, passion and expertise are legendary – and can be found in every bottle of Boondocks, what may well be his crowning achievement.
