About Bespoken Spirits Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Based in Silicon Valley, co-founders Stu Aaron and Martin Janousek seek perfection in spirits through technology. They have launched their own brand of spirits, as well as offering their proprietary maturation process as a service to distillers. Time is an essential component of whiskey creation. Is the technology finally there to streamline the painstakingly slow maturation process? That is the question that the team of scientists and entrepreneurs at Bespoken Spirits have been asking themselves since before the company's inception in 2018.
Their answer is the proprietary ACTivation technology, where ACT stands for "aroma, color, and taste." It enables them to extract the three components from barrels with "precision, control, and speed," then mature the spirit in days instead of years. The natural and sustainable process allows for the profile of a spirit to be precisely tailored with many other benefits: "97% less wood consumption, 20% more spirit yield (no angels share), and most importantly, award winning tastes." Their own portfolio indeed consists of several award-winning expressions of whiskey as well as a dark rum.
All of the Bespoken whiskeys are sourced from MGP and bottled at the Treasure Island Distillery. The Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a newer expression that's crafted with a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malt. It comes from MGP, just like the other expressions ― but it matures in Indiana for at least 2 years before it gets Bespoken Spirits' ACTivation treatment. Bottled non-chill filtered at 94 proof, the complex bourbon has won the coveted Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2021.
