While many spirit drinkers look for rare casks, experimental blends, or unique expressions, the one-off bottles can leave some whisky drinkers thirsty. With Bearface Whisky, the nuanced, crafted spirit delivers an expression that deserves to be sipped over and over. The flavor journey that one bottle offers has excited many drinkers.

Believing in the mantra of freedom to innovate, Bearface Whisky looks to its Canadian environment to impart flavor. The idea is called Elemental Aging. As the temperature fluctuate, the wood and whisky interact. As the wood expands and contracts, the golden liquid evolves with its flavors. The oak casts and their charred levels offer different characteristics. As the final product is blended to achieve that nuanced balance, the enjoyment is elevated.

For example, the Bearface Triple Oak blends whisky that has been aged in ex-bourbon American oak barrels, French oak red wine casks, and air-dried Hungarian oak. Although drinkers may not be able to sip each component individually, it is experienced as it is drunk.

As one flavor note evolves into another, it is a journey that invites drinkers to explore time and again. Like the Canadian wilderness that influences the brand, there is a little unexpected but intriguing note that compels drinkers to sip and sip again.

Although this Canadian whisky is delightful drunk neat or over a single ice cube, Bearface whiskey is equally delightful in a cocktail. Borrowing from its location, cocktails that use some Canadian elements can highlight the nuanced flavor that this whisky offers.

One delicious option is the Bearface Old Fearless. The combination of sweetness from the maple syrup and the smoky notes from the cedar transforms drinkers to an old cabin tucked deep in the woods. For that moment when people want to just disconnect, enjoy the moment, and sip on a great cocktail, the Bearface Old Fearless is a must try.

  • Stir all 3 ingredients in a mixing glass with ice, strain into a rocks glass over large ice cubes and garnish with an orange twist.

For a cocktail that brings the spice, the Bearface Buck is a must try. While there are similarities to a Moscow Mule, the addition of the cinnamon stick brings a comforting note. It might be simple, but it lets the complexity of the whisky shine.
