It was a natural evolution for us to take what we’d learned in the cider industry and apply it to the meticulous world of distilled spirits. At Swilled Dog, we believe in using hyper-local production, sustainable practices and mutually beneficial partnerships with West Virginia farmers and businesses to deliver some of the best sipping whiskeys and bourbons to pour out of Appalachia. We’re proud to source non-GMO corn from the fields right next door to our distillery for the barrels we're currently laying down. And we use only the finest white oak barrels painstakingly crafted by the WV Great Barrel Company.

While our own stock is painstakingly aging in our facility, we source bourbons and whiskies using our trusted network selecting only the liquid that truly meets our high standards to put in your glass. In addition, our Barrel Finished Bourbon Series combines the great liquid we source with barrels made of West Virginia white oak coopered by WVGBC by re-casking and delivering something truly unique. You’ll know these craft spirits are special with every sip. Cheers!

Double Oaked

Double Oaked Rye Whiskey

This Rye Whiskey is the second expression in our new Double Oaked series, and a very special release. We took the first Rye Whiskey we ever released to the next level by re-casking it in a combination of 18- and 12-month staves of West Virginia white oak and letting it age at our distillery for an additional year and a half. We selected the two best barrels to blend together for an extremely unique bourbon. Only 482 bottles were released.

Double Oaked


This rare release of Double Oaked Bourbon is the first batch in a new distillery series of barrel-finished bourbons. We took our award-winning Barrel Strength to the next level by re-casking it in 18-month staves of West Virginia white oak and letting it age at our distillery for an additional year. We then pulled it at the perfect time for the liquid to evolve into a complex, smooth, and truly one-of-a-kind expression. Only 245 bottles were released.

90 Proof


Swilled Dog Straight Bourbon Whiskey is aged for a minimum of 4 years in American white oak barrels.The bold profile is balanced by its sweeter and more subtle characteristics derived from the 75% corn mash bill. This bourbon delivers a hint of spice from the rye and ripe cherry flavors to create the perfect sipper.

Barrel Strength


Our San Francisco Double Gold winning barrel strength bourbon has a full flavor profile that all excellent bourbons exhibit. This is a complex whiskey that reveals a potpourri of baking spices – cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice – all wrapped around dark fruits of fig, date, and plum. The finish is dominated by spice and charred oak, finishing quite clean.

Sherry Cask Finished


Swilled Dog Sherry Cask Finished Bourbon is aged for 4 years in American white oak barrels and bottled at barrel strength to show off the whiskey’s full flavor profile. The raisin, floral, and fruit qualities derived from the sherry casks are balanced with the bourbon’s complex earthy and ripe cherry undertones.
