Truly unique California Whiskey.
 
Wolves is a new venture from Jon Buscemi and James Bond, known footwear and lifestyle entrepreneurs based in Los Angeles. Jon and James, along with their partners at Wolves, set out to create a blend that is crafted along the lines of their existing brands and lifestyles. With that in mind they went on a hunt for a Master Distiller and came across Marko Karakasevic (of Charbay fame) at his place in Northern California
 
There, they made a blend with Whiskey distilled from Stout beer, aged in French oak barrels for 8 years, 5 year old Pilsner Whiskey aged in Char 3 New American oak barrels, and some Rye. Marko takes things a step further by using a rare copper alambic Charentais pot still - it's a rarely used machine, as there are only 5 of this particular still in use. When the juice is complete it is then bottled in heavy French-cut glass. Each bottle is wrapped in Italian sheepskin leather, and then hand numbered. Each detail hand crafted and curated for your enjoyment. The still isn’t as efficient as column stills and this run is limited to 898 bottles.

Carly
Carly,
Definitely taste the hops—super interesting! Love it with a couple drops of water. And the sheepskin leather label smells so awesome, you know it’s protecting something damn good.

Jeremy,
The smell of the leather label is worth the price of admission alone. The juice is damn good too. Very different.
