Man & Oak .... Not just for Men

The name 'Man & Oak' refers to my personal journey with whiskey!

 

THE 'MAN': 

I developed a passion for whiskey while bartending in the Caribbean in the early 2000's, and since then, the endless quest to educate myself about this spirt has been a life altering journey.

THE 'OAK':

Oak is a crucial part of Whiskey, and a vital part in most aged spirits, Brandy, Rum, Amaros, Cordials, to Tequilla, they all depend on Oak.  Beyond distilled spirits, Oak even plays a key factor in Wine, Vinegar, and Beers.  This fascinating species of wood that affects so much change, this is what hooked me!    

 

While the name is a reflection of my journey; Man & Oak welcomes everyone to become a member, and explore all distilled spirits, not just whiskey!
