Our site began in 2013 with the simple idea of helping others learn about whiskey. What started with a few reviews and some news articles quickly grew to a small online community with members in over 120 different countries all sharing a passion for fine spirits.

Today our site continues to be a go-to site for bourbon lovers everywhere. We recently launched our official app for iOS and Android devices to help you keep up with us on the go. We also launched our official magazine, The Oak Guide, which takes our love of exploring and southern culture to a new level.

As always, we thank you for your support and we will continue to strive to make Bourbon & Oak the best it can be. There is no site more grateful to have you as our friend than Bourbon & Oak. We really enjoy each and every one of our followers and the great support and conversation we have.
