A Bourbon that’ll get the Wine drinker in your life into Whiskey.

Infuse Spirits is aptly named. Seth Benhaim started infusing Spirits in his garage in 2012 at the age of twenty-five — becoming the youngest brand owner to ever win Best-In-Show and Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. He’s our kind of guy. While Infuse Spirits Vodkas and Bitters are infused with natural spices and fruits, their Whiskies are infused with staves from other barrels of a variety of wood types — from Whiskey and Sherry to Wine, Single Malt, and more. They even use exotic woods like Mizunara and French oak.

Seth is a California native, in love with Kentucky. Naturally, a Straight Bourbon Whiskey that’s finished with 80% Central Coast Cabernet barrel staves and 20% French Oak staves was to be born sooner or later. Broken Barrel California Oak Bourbon Whiskey is distilled in Owensboro, Kentucky, with a mash bill of 70% corn, 21% rye, and 9% malted barley. The charred virgin French oak staves give the Bourbon a distinct character that’s often found in Wine and balance the sweet dark fruit flavors bleeding from the Wine staves. This Gold Medal winner at the 2020 San Fran World Spirits Competition was created to be enjoyed neat or on the rocks.

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.
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 must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
