Asbury Park Double Barrel Bourbon is aged in new oak and in ex-Gin casks, adding light herbal notes to the classic Bourbon profile.
 
Asbury Park Distilling opened on Memorial Day weekend in 2017. It’s the brainchild and passion of six co-owners lead by Zack Ohebshalom. Master Distiller Bill Tambussi has a masters degree in distilling from the internationally-respected Heriot-Watt University in Scotland, and did his apprenticeship work in Philadelphia before coming to Ashbury Park. As you would expect, their first offerings were Vodka and Gin. But not that there is a bit of time on their side, they have released a Barrel Finished Gin and a Double Barrel Bourbon. The distillery and tasting room are right downtown and they use a custom-made combination still — half pot still, half column still — that lets them do all their work in one.
 
Asbury Park Double Barrel Bourbon follows a traditional Bourbon format, but they age it in new oak and then in the casks used to make their Barrel Finished Gin. The combination takes both familiar and distant with light herbal notes lingering over the heavier apple, spice, and vanilla in the Bourbon. And Esquire magazine called it the Best Bourbon in New Jersey.

“Greetings from Asbury Park N.J.” was the debut album from Bruce Springsteen one of New Jersey’s favorite sons. It was released in 1973 and rocketed “The Boss” to stardom.

Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
