BOURBON BARREL AGED GIN
375ml / 45% / $40.00
When a gin and bourbon love each other very much you end up with Wayward's - Char #3. This unlikely union between our honey-based Unruly Gin and the inside of a charred bourbon barrel captures the best from both worlds.
Six months in the barrel balances earthy citrus against aromatic toasted vanilla and finishes up this spirit with some long, lingering spice. This is an unexpected gin for the unrepentant bourbon lover!
Pair this Distiller's Favourite with your favourite sipping glass and just enjoy or, for added depth in your cocktails, mix it up in a classic Negroni, Corpse Reviver #2 or a pleasantly spicy Old Fashioned.
Only 552 bottles. All orders will be available for local pickup starting December the 2nd and will start shipping Tuesday the 5th.
DRUNKEN HIVE RUM BARREL 4
375ml / 42.5% / $50.00
Drunken Hive Rum is back!
Traditionally, Rum is made from sugarcane byproduct, usually molasses. Never one for tradition, Wayward's Drunken Hive is crafted from molasses made from caramelized BC honey instead.
After meticulous fermentation and distillation, we aged Drunken Hive in a single full sized Makers Mark bourbon cask for a full year. Just before bottling we add a little Comox Glacier water and a touch of our Caramelized honey before bottling at 42.5%
The result is absolutely amazing. Dark Fruit and Pecan on the nose, a rich Caramel Brulee body and a wonderfully complex Smoky Honeycomb finish.
Coming in at 666 bottles, this fourth Barrel Release is very limited. All orders will be available for local pickup starting December the 2nd and will start shipping Tuesday the 5th.
RUM BARREL AGED
375ml / 33% ABV / $35.00 /
We aged our dark and dry Depth Charge 6 full months in our very first Drunken Hive Rum Barrel. This very special barrel started off life aging premium Heaven Hills bourbon, found new life maturing our wildly popular Drunken Hive Rum (twice!) and has found a new calling - smashing all that amazing history into our delightfully dry and natural Depth Charge.
Darker and richer with hints of honey rum and bourbon, this aged Depth Charge is complex and very very satisfying. We can't stop sipping it neat at room temp. But don't let us stop you from experimenting.
Only 258 bottles in this very limited release. All orders will be available for local pickup starting December the 2nd and will start shipping Tuesday the 5th.
