Welcome to the Next Chapter of Bourbon
A contemporary twist on historic blending traditions.
2XO is a new whiskey brand from renowned blender Dixon Dedman. 2XO, meaning Two Times Oak, refers to Dixon’s unique blending process where he re-barrels his hand-selected whiskey into new charred oak barrels to create a unique combination of intense flavors, character, and complexity with each blend.
The 2XO brand will consist of a series of limited-time small batch offerings (Icon Series), a series of single barrel releases (Gem of Kentucky Series), and an everyday blend offering (Oak Series). Each small batch blend in the Icon Series bares a distinctive name and symbol inspired by Dixon’s passion to innovate, collaborate, and create high quality whiskeys with unique characteristics and profiles.
The Innkeeper’s Blend will be followed by the third release in the Icon Series, The Tribute Blend, the first blend in the Oak Series, American Oak, and the first single barrel, limited time release from the Gem of Kentucky Series.
