Famed Napa winemaker Dave Phinney is the founder of Orin Swift Cellars and creator of The Prisoner Wine Company. In 2016, Dave started his own state-of-the-art distillery, Savage & Cooke, located on historic Mare Island in California. It is here that he applies all that he has learned over the years in winemaking and where he notably finishes his spirits in wine barrels for additional aging to add flavor, texture, and character. Savage & Cooke offers a variety of core Whiskeys: Bourbon, American, and Rye—in addition to limited-release spirits, bottled cocktails, and unique collaboration spirits.
In a special collaboration with Savage & Cooke distillery, Cory brought Nagao or Never to fruition. This unique Bourbon blend was crafted to represent the renowned 450-acre resort of Hōkūala and the enclave that is Timbers Kauaʻi Ocean Club & Residences.
