Trail’s End Kentucky Straight Bourbon (45% ABV) is initially aged in new charred American white Oak barrels for eight years, before being transported to Oregon, where they are steeped with Oregon Oak over a period of a few months, in a process which is said to help impart a bolder oak profile on the finished bourbon.

Trail’s End Kentucky Straight Bourbon, which has been produced in a collaboration with Clear Creek Distillery, was initially launched in limited numbers last year and received rave reviews from bartenders and consumers alike. It also recently won a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Commenting on the news, Keri Eliason, Marketing Brand Manager at Hood River Distillers, Said: “Straight whiskeys and craft bourbons have been enjoying a resurgence in recent years, due in part to increasing interest in authentic, heritage-based products. While the category is dominated by Tennessee and Kentucky bourbons, a new set of bourbons are emerging from outside of the region and consumers are responding. In creating Trail’s End, we’ve taken the best that Kentucky has to offer, added a bit of Oregon, and the result is pure gold!”
Trail’s End Kentucky Straight Bourbon, will be available across the US from selected specialist retailers for a RRP of $44.95.
