Redwood Empire was established with a commitment to craft distinctive whiskeys inspired by the rugged landscape of our Northern California home. Our proprietary blend of house-distilled rye whiskey includes mature stocks of four, five and eleven-year-old bourbon aged in classic, high char American oak casks. Portions of the rye are aged in used port and wine barrels for unique blending components.
Named after the world’s largest coastal Redwood, Lost Monarch whiskey has a name to live up to. An award winning bourbon-rye blend with an exceptional balance of sweetness and spice. The perfect choice for those who just can’t decide between rye or bourbon, we call it “the best of both worlds.”
