How do we build on our iconic, award-winning Chateau de Laubade collaboration? By curating a custom bourbon blend and thoughtful aging process. Our first collaborative release with Chateau de Laubade gained legendary status, winning “best in class” for finished bourbons at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. For the second iteration, a custom bourbon blend accentuates the nuanced flavors from each barrel. Bold Kentucky bourbon balances oak that is bursting with fiery Armagnac. The Tennessee bourbon provides a hint of citrus to complement Laubade’s unique floral notes. Half of the Laubade barrels were aged two years on a lower floor, while the second half rested 16 months on the top floor, bringing a beautiful contrast of wood extraction. Complexity, balance, and thoughtful innovation make this release one for the ages.
