Aged 5 years in new, heavily toasted American oak barrels
Created from the memoirs of John Wayne
Corn, rye & barley
"I never trust a man that doesn't drink"
Inspired by John Wayne's personal collection of spirits and his sealed memoirs from 1979, Duke is a traditional bourbon that has been meticulously crafted by his son Ethan and master blender Chris Radomski. Handcrafted in small batches and aged for 5 years in new, heavily toasted American oak barrels at O.Z Tyler Distillery, it was made from a mash of 75% American bent corn, 13% rye and 12% 6-row malted barley.
"When Ethan Wayne chose to use his father's name, he had three attributes in mind: timeless, authentic and quality. So that's the mentality behind making this bourbon."
From the ground up, with dedication and passion, the brand's founders assembled a team of master distillers and consultants to honour the whisky recipe that John Wayne was working on in the early 1960s.
An American legend
In order to recreate the magic that was unleashed by the Duke, Ethan Wayne enlists the help of Chris Radomski and Jayson Woodbridge, one of the world's most gifted winemakers, to try to replicate a bourbon that John Wayne would have been proud to
Know-how and tradition
Located on the banks of the Ohio River, the O.Z. Tyler distillery was the perfect place to develop the perfect relationship between our 5 year old bourbon and the American oak toast barrels in which wines were previously stored.

Behind the barrel
Each barrel represents a very important element in the evolution of the flavour. The tightly packed grains found in American oak, sourced from centuries-old forests, combined with a perfect level of toast, provide a rarely explored canvas.
