After selling out with their initial release of “First Run” in May 2019, the dynamic duo, James Bond (Undefeated) and Jon Buscemi (Buscemi, Truff, Oliver Peoples) are back with their second limited, online-only, whiskey release titled “Winter Run.”
Wolves Whiskey produced 1,338 bottles of “Winter Run.” They will be available for purchase on a first-come first-served basis at WolvesWhiskeyCA.com with free shipping. An allocation of bottles will also be available at Flaviar.com. (MSRP $185).
Winter Run contains whiskey distilled from craft stout beer, aged in French oak for 8 years; whiskey distilled from craft pilsner beer, aged in new American oak for 5 years; a rye selected for its spice; and a single malt whiskey aged for 9 years in used French oak. With the exception of the Rye, the whiskeys in the blend were distilled by 13th generation Master Distiller Marko Karakasevic in northern California using a rare copper Alambic pot still imported from Cognac, France in 1983.
Marko lives by the same code and compass that James and Jon abide, with quality and authenticity as their north star. Each small, bespoke batch of distillate is created by Marko over a near-sleepless 10-day period to ensure the heads and tails are cut out properly, and that only the hearts remain for barrel aging. It’s a lonely and exhausting process, but the result is better whiskey.
“Our group comes from apparel and music background, our concept to do multiple drops like you would a fashion or shoe brand or new music was to always keep it fresh and exciting. Continue to add to the catalog, and in theory when you collect all the drops you get a piece of our story,” says James Bond.
