We’ve generated your top matching bottles based on your specific taste profile derived from real tastings you have done in the app. As you continue to add tasting reviews, we’ll get better and better at making recommendations for you.

What are MATCHES?

We analyze your tasting reviews to determine your unique detailed taste profile, and then we compare you to the crowdsourced taste profiles of bottles from the community. Our algorithms calculate how much you and the bottles in our shop match, making shopping for a bottle you are bound to love a breeze! As you do more tastings in the app and your tastes evolve, so will your match scores! Check back often as your tastes evolve.

It’s been a minute since we last reached out to update you all on how the Oak Bottle App beta has been going.

July 7th, 2020 •  2 min read Our Debrief on Hotel Tango Distillery Established in 2013, Hotel Tango Distillery, the first combat-disabled, veteran-owned distillery in the U.S. Hotel Tango focuses on crafting exceptional spirits that reflect our company’s founder Travis’s time in the military. Spirits that are fit to serve – and made to share. The name Hotel Tango reflects the military roots of our company’s founder, Travis Barnes.

Previously, we chatted about some tips to land yourself a stellar infinity bottle. You should have a simple, yet effective, base set up for a tasty infinity bottle, made from an old empty bottle. Glass is great, and common in some varietals of spirits, but for whiskey, a marrying cask is very common. A marrying cask is the process of taking your infinity blend, and giving it anywhere from a day or two, to a couple of months, resting in a new oak vessel. By new, we don’t mean freshly charred – just a different oak vessel. It can be new charred oak (rare),
