Recipes & Tips

Which Wood Should I Use?


Apple wood is light and fruity, and is the mildest of the wood shavings we offer. We recommend using apple wood for drinks that have lighter flavors and would be overpowered by a stronger smoke flavor.

Bourbon Barrel

Bourbon Barrel shavings have extra char and some of the bourbon notes mixed in. It is stronger than Cherry but lighter than Hickory. This wood pairs well with bourbon cocktails for obvious reasons but makes a great go-to for any cocktail.


Cherry wood is slightly sweet, slightly fruity, and is great on just about anything. Stronger than Apple, but still subtle, Cherry wood works well in any drink that lends well to a bit of sweetnes, but still can hold up to a stronger smoke flavor.


Hickory is probably the most popular wood for smoking food, and brings that classic smoked spicy flavor to your drinks. It is rich with deep smoke flavor and spice, and is best for cocktails with brown liquors, especially higher proof cocktails, that will hold up to the flavor.
