FRANKFORT, Ky. — Whisky Magazine named Old Charter Oak the 2021 Brand Innovator of the Year.
The Old Charter Oak collection explores, honors, and celebrates the role of oak in making great whiskey by exploring the different taste profiles of barrels obtained from trees grown in different countries, climates, and soil.
The oak trees used for this brand vary by country of origin, or species, or U.S. state. Some barrels are even made from century-old trees that grew for 100, 200, and 300 years.
Four expressions of Old Charter Oak have been released to date, including Chinkapin Oak, Mongolian Oak, French Oak, and Canadian Oak. Subsequent releases are planned a few times each year, indefinitely.
