Duke Timeless Spirits is inspired by legendary American icon, craftsman and actor John Wayne, or “The Duke”.
His devotion to his craft, friends, family and country brought him respect and admiration across the globe – earning him a congressional gold medal, an airport named after him, a feature on two postage stamps and an induction into the California Hall of Fame in 2007.
John Wayne, also known as “The Duke” to his family and friends, was a legendary craftsman who loved and perfected his craft as an actor.
He dedicated his life to his love for being a father, an adventurer and an unabashed American patriot. He was a loyal friend to many and was passionate about sharing a good drink with loved ones.
"Honestly, I thought this whiskey wouldn’t taste as good as it did because it felt like a cliche but this is a bottle I would want to have in my house for guest. The craftsmanship of the whiskey is on point and the passion for it can be felt in every glass."
"But I must say, the bourbon surprised me and surpassed expectations. First: Its very sweet on the nose and palate, with an easy swallow…no burn—just a tad of spice… All of it lingers: the spice, the cherry notes, the faint citrus.”
"John was known for saying that, if he had to drink, “it had to be a good one,” and Chris divulged that Duke Spirits was determined to deliver something of that standard."
