Bourbon Chips

What are they? Well they are oak chips taken from barrels that have been used to age bourbon for a minimum of 4-8 years. They can greatly enhance the flavour of your bourbon and are simple and easy to use, just leave them to soak in your spirit, drain and taste the difference!

We have 3 different kinds of bourbon chips derived from well known bourbon brands:

  • Kentucky Bourbon Chips come from Jim Beam barrels
  • Gobbler's Bourbon Chips come from Wild Turkey barrels
  • Tennessee Bourbon Chips come from Jack Daniels barrels

Soak 1/2 packet of bourbon chips in 2 litres of filtered spirit stirring daily for a minimum of 10 days. Drain carefully and then add your favourite bourbon essence. Half a bottle for the Top Shelf essences or 1 packet of Classic essence per 2 litres of spirit.

Try experimenting with different chips and essences or even blend them all together - you may be surprised at the results!
