Product details

Graton Distilling Company burst on the Sonoma County distilling scene in 2016 with D. George Benham's Gin, shortly followed by Redwood Empire Whiskey. Inspired by a stretch of redwood trees along the northwest coast of California, each expression from the range is named after a particular redwood tree – the bourbon you've got here was named after Pipe Dream, the 14th tallest tree in the world!

The tree connections don't stop there, because Redwood Empire has partnered with Trees for the Future, so that for every bottle of Redwood Empire sold, a tree is planted. Pipe Dream is made using a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley, so expect a helping of peppery spice peeking out from the layers of vanilla and honey.
