A bold Bourbon blend from Kentucky finished in California Chardonnay casks.
Trinchero Family Estates was founded more than seventy years ago by Italian immigrants when Mario Trinchero and his brother John moved to Napa Valley, California, from New York to purchase the Sutter Home Winery. The family business has expanded rapidly since then through solid management, organic growth, acquisition, and innovation — including inventing the White Zinfandel Wine category in 1971. Today they encompass brands of Wine and six brands of distilled Spirits — including Ménage à Trois, Sutter Home, Napa Cellars, Amardor Whiskey Co., Tres Agaves Tequila, and dozens more.
Amador Whiskey Co. partners with some of the top Whiskey distilleries in Kentucky to create limited edition, luxury Whiskies. Amador Double Barrel Bourbon is a blend of prime Bourbon aged for three and a half years in new oak. Those casks are shipped to the Trinchero facility in Napa where the Spirit is finished in French oak barrels that were used to rest Napa Cellars Chardonnay for another six months — equally four full years in wood. The resulting Spirit is bottled at 43.4% ABV.
Amador Whiskey Co. should not be confused with Amador Distillery. Both are located in California but are unrelated.
