Our Gold Bar Whiskey distillery is located on Treasure Island in San Francisco, California. We mature, double cask and bottle all of our whiskies on site.
We currently source our base spirit from high quality craft distillers in the US who have distilled the whiskey to our specifications. Our Master Blender, Montgomery Paulsen, then takes these base whiskies and finishes them in former wine barrels from Napa Valley before marrying them together for resting and consistency before bottling. All of the finishing, blending and bottling occurs on site in our San Francisco Distillery.
Bourbon is a type of whiskey, in the same way that Champagne is a type of wine. So therefore all Bourbon is Whiskey but not all Whiskey is Bourbon. Bourbon can only be produced in the United States (any state, not just Kentucky) and must be distilled from a mash bill (mixture of grains) that is at least 51% corn. It must then be matured in new charred oak barrels and cannot include any additives or colorings. To be called “straight bourbon whiskey”, bourbon has to have been aged in new charred oak barrels for a minimum of two years.
Gold Bar Black and Gold Bar Rickhouse are both Bourbon Whiskies. Gold Bar Original (Gold Bottle) is a blended American Whiskey. All of our whiskies are finished in California Wine barrels.

There are three main ingredients in whiskey: grain, yeast and water. While the ingredients are simple , the type and percentage of grain in the mash bill, as well as various regional distillation and maturation processes give each brand and variety a signature flavor.
