StyleBainbridge Battle Point Organic Wheat Whiskey
AboutA single-grain whiskey, fermented on estate-grown soft white wheat utilizing a unique combination of yeasts usually employed to make Irish and Scottish whiskies, double distilled and aged for 2 years in new, No.3 charred, ten gallon American white oak barrels.
“Brilliant delivery, full of quick-tempered spicy attitude. The oils are sublime and sugars mostly of the muscovado bent. Some vanilla and butterscotch show light oaky intent while the sugars remove the spices completely. Soft and satisfying, The spices demanded from wheat whiskey hit all the right spots. Very well made and impressive.” Jim Murray’s The Whiskey Bible
Tasting Notesflavors are rich and complex, with notes of vanilla, eucalyptus and sherry, and a nose redolent of fresh barrel char, and a lingering finish with a bit of salt-air brine.

StyleBainbridge Organic Vanilla Vodka
AboutWe take 3 or 4 of the highest quality hand-harvested USDA certified organic Madagascar vanilla pods and place them in each bottle by hand. The vodka and vanilla beans spend at least 4 months ”getting to know each other“ in the bottle. As the vodka slowly seeps into the pod it liberates its lush vanilla essence.
Tasting NotesCombines the lush and sensuous flavor of genuine organic Madagascar vanilla with our award winning four-times-distilled Bainbridge Legacy Vodka. Unlike artificially flavored vanilla vodkas, or vodkas flavored with processed vanilla extracts, this vanilla vodka’s flavors are rich, full and complex, with a taste and aroma like no vanilla vodka you've ever tasted.
