The epitome of a grain-to-glass craft distillery, Sutherland Distilling Company (From Livermore, CA) produced award-winning, locally sourced spirits from 2013 until its’ closing in February 2023. This California Bourbon (100% corn mash bill) represents, in our humble opinion, the finest whiskey they ever produced. Sweet and rich, with just a touch of spice, this 6-year straight bourbon is every bit as bold and complex as its’ home state. Sadly, the liquid in this bottle comes from one of just two remaining barrels of Sutherland bourbon. Enjoy this ultra-rare bourbon while you can. Cheers!
Tasting Notes: Heavy notes of toffee popcorn, creamy vanilla, and roasted peanuts rounded out by waves of lingering oak and barrel char.
Sadly, Sutherland Distilling Company announced that it would be closing permanently in February 2023. While we wish that this could have been a long-term partnership, we couldn’t be happier to offer you this 100% corn bourbon - one of the final barrels of Sutherland whiskey that will ever be released. Brash and unapologetically high-proof, this straight bourbon delivers palate-coating waves of toffee popcorn, vanilla custard, and roasted peanuts – all tied together perfectly with lingering notes of oak and barrel char.
As rare as it gets, these bottles won’t last long.

Sutherland Distilling Company was founded in 2013 by brothers Ryan and Barry Sutherland, along with friend Eric Larimer, in Livermore, CA. Inspired by their passion for craft spirits, and a shared commitment to sustainability and local agriculture, the trio quickly established a reputation for producing exceptional, handcrafted spirits distilled entirely from locally sourced ingredients.
Our partnership with Sutherland began in October of 2022 during a week-long tour of northern California craft distilleries. Despite a short notice, Mason Clemens (Distiller) and Ryan Sutherland (Owner, Distiller) took time to sit down with us and share samples of nearly all of the award-winning spirits, including two barrels of 100% corn bourbon that had been resting for over 5 years. Milled, fermented, distilled, and aged on-site, they were exactly what we were looking for in a Two Souls Spirits whiskey.
Sadly, Sutherland Distilling Company announced that it would be closing permanently in February 2023. While we wish that this could have been a long-term partnership, we couldn’t be happier to offer you some of the last Sutherland bourbon that will ever be released. We are proud to continue the Sutherland tradition of “No Shortcuts. No Exceptions.” through Two Souls Spirits.
