Redwood Empire Grizzly Beast Bottled in Bond Bourbon
SINGLE SEASON, SINGLE DISTILLERY This rare whiskey was bottled under the strict tenents of the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. Aged in the temperate climate of the Northern California coast, the original distillate was altered only by the addition of pure water from the Russian River Valley aquifer. This is the purest expression of Redwood Empire’s craft.
The Redwood Empire stretches from San Francisco to Humboldt Bay and on to the Oregon border. The region is home to majestic coastal redwoods, some more than 2,000 years old. The name Grizzly Beast is a combination of two trees: The Grizzly Giant, a giant Sequoia located in Yosemite National Park that has over two billion leaves, and the Mattole Beast, a massive 375-foot coastal redwood located in Humboldt Redwoods State Park.
