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.

Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
