Our Story


Our Story


sharing stories
one drink at a time

Axe and the Oak started off as five friends with a true passion for good whiskey, good music, and the great outdoors. While sipping a glass of bourbon around a campfire, the question of whether they could create a whiskey worth sharing became a challenge worth accepting – and the rest is history.

We believe whiskey is meant to be shared - with friends, with family, with the community. That’s been our goal since day one. We love seeing people having a good time, sharing stories, laughing and enjoying each other – and what better way to do that than over a good drink. We taste every single batch to make sure it’s perfect.
