DFW-based Oak & Eden has announced the re-release of their summer seasonal whiskey, Rye & Rumba.
Rye & Rumba begins with Oak & Eden’s rye whiskey, finished with a Caribbean rum-soaked American oak spiral.
Oak & Eden originally launched Rye & Rumba in the summer of 2019. This is the product’s first encore into the market since launch.
Oak & Eden Whiskey uses a process called “In-Bottle Finishing,” where they place a 5″ long spiral-cut piece of wood, called the Spire, into their fully-aged bottle of whiskey, imparting new flavors and characteristics to the whiskey, the company says.
In the creation of Rye & Rumba, Oak & Eden steeped an American oak spire into a Caribbean rum for two weeks before placing it into a bottle of rye whiskey.
“Rye & Rumba is among our most balanced and flavorful whiskeys,” says Joe Giildenzopf, cofounder and CEO of Oak & Eden. “There is a delicate complexity of flavors that exist when you introduce Caribbean rum into rye whiskey. Putting the two together creates a rich, aromatic whiskey that is full of flavor and a clear fan favorite.”
The technique of In-Bottle Finishing has led Oak & Eden to produce and launch 10 whiskeys into their portfolio, such as Bourbon & Vine (cabernet-infused bourbon), Bourbon & Brew (cold brew coffee-infused bourbon), the Ale Series (beer-infused whiskeys), among others.
Rye & Rumba has a suggested retail price of $59.99 per 750-ml. bottle. It’s available across most of the 22 states that Oak & Eden distributes within, and is also available for sale online at oakandeden.com/shop-whiskey.
