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.
The Duke’s passion for bourbon and tequila traces back to his son Ethan’s discovery of his lost memoirs, liquor collection and special blends sealed since 1979. It was then when his project was reborn – with the knowledge of world class vintners, master distillers, years of research and the journey to find the finest aged bourbon to match the original flavor profiles and balance in the bottles he left behind, Duke Timeless Spirits came to life.
