"Named One Of the Best Whiskeys Of 2021" - Paste Magazine
We strive to deliver exceptional whiskeys that can be enjoyed at any occasion. Our innovative approach to maturation gives us the ability to bring you a different whiskey experience with every release. We're proud to have received Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition for our Single Barrel Rye and our Barrel Strength Rye, and Double Gold for our Toasted Barrel Rye. We truly hope you enjoy the Buzzard's Roost experience, and invite you to sit back, relax, and roost a while.
SINGLE BARREL RYE
A unique and award-winning bottling from one of our favorite barrels in the warehouse. This release took home Gold from the 2020 San Francisco Spirits Competition and received a 91 point rating from Whisky Advocate.
BARREL STRENGTH RYE
Our most prized barrels are offered to you uncut, unfiltered, straight out of the barrel. Only a select few barrels will meet the criteria to be offered at Barrel Strength. It's no wonder this four-year-old whiskey won a Gold Medal at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
CHAR #1 RYE
Tastefully and carefully blended from only a few barrels in our stock, each batch is always different, always delicious.
TOASTED BARREL RYE
A Double Gold award-winning whiskey, our Toasted Barrel is a thoughtfully blended three-year-old rye that’s finished in one-of-a-kind toasted barrels which lend a vanilla character.
Aged in American Oak barrels that were cold-smoked with aged cigar tobacco leaves from Kentucky, Cigar Rye holds notes of cigar tobacco, citrus and candy sweetness.
PEATED BARREL RYE
Aged in lightly charred oak barrels smoked with the finest peat logs imported from Scotland. Like many of our other ryes, Peated Barrel has a proof of 105, and is aged for four years to ensure exceptional flavor that will leave a lasting impression.
BARREL STRENGTH BOURBON
Created from a blend of 4 to 6 year old whiskeys and then aged in our one-of- a- kind, proprietary oak barrels, Buzzard's Roost Barrel Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey is packed with flavor that is perfect for sipping on its own or enjoying in the finest of cocktails.
TOASTED FRENCH OAK BOURBON
Created from 5-year-old whiskey aged in French oak barrels from the Limousin region of France, this bourbon is packed with a complex mix of sweet and oaky flavors.
TOASTED AMERICAN OAK BOURBON
Created from a blend of 4 & 5 year old double-barreled bourbons, Buzzard's Roost Toasted American Oak Bourbon is a unique blend of confectionary and baking spice goodness.
CHAR #1 BOURBON
Created from 4-year-old whiskey, and aged in our proprietary barrels, Char #1 Bourbon carries notes of cherry and dark fruit that stand out in any bourbon cocktail and is perfect for sipping and roosting.
We start by sourcing the best aged whiskey we can find, but the real magic is in our barrels. We use only brand new, 53-gallon white oak barrels that are carefully toasted and very lightly charred. Each one is designed from the ground up to deliver a specific flavor profile.
We work closely with our cooperage to tweak every parameter of the barrel - from the seasoning to the charring to the development of our custom toast profiles. All of our barrels are unique and proprietary to our company, giving Buzzard’s Roost a truly one-of-a kind flavor. After resting only a few weeks in our new barrels, the whiskey is purposefully transformed and ready for bottling.
The story of Buzzard’s Roost started nearly two decades ago with one man’s goal to educate people about whiskey. From the opening of the first bourbon-focused bar - Bourbon’s Bistro to pioneering the idea of barrel selection for restaurants, Company Founder and Master Blender Jason Brauner has always been at the forefront of whiskey.
After taking part in more than a 100 barrel selections over his career, Jason is embarking on his most exciting challenge yet - Buzzard’s Roost Sipping Whiskey, a Rye he designed with the bourbon drinker in mind. His goal with Buzzard’s Roost is still the same as it was 19 years ago, to educate and share his love of whiskey.
