The small batch bourbon producer has created a new savory, smoky bourbon inspired by the flavor of food smoked on the open flame
Bib & Tucker Small Batch Bourbon has announced the release of its Double Char Bourbon, inspired by the turn of the century when food was cooked on the open flame.
This latest release is aged twice to create savory smoky notes and smooth finish. It is first aged for six years in the hills of Tennessee in new white American oak, followed by a minimum of five months in a second heavily charred and smoked new barrel. This unique fire-forged double char aging method creates the rich and deep flavor of Bib & Tucker Double Char.
“I can’t wait for consumers to try this delicious expression,” said Tom Steffanci, president of Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits. “Double Char spends just the right amount of time in the second heavily charred barrel, creating a savory, smoky character that adds a whole new dimension to the bourbon.”
As a Tennessee bourbon, Bib & Tucker follows the Lincoln County process unique to the state, meaning all our bourbon is filtered through sugar maple charcoal before going into the barrel for aging.
For Double Char, to pay homage to the Lincoln County process, the second barrel is smoked with sugar maple before being filled with the six-year-aged bourbon. The perfect amount of time in the barrels, the char, and the sugar maple barrel smoking process delivers a bourbon with an inviting savory white smoke flavour.
Bib & Tucker Double Char will be available nationally, in-store and online, beginning August 2023.
