Heritage Meets Modernity
A contemporary twist on historic blending traditions.
2XO, Two Times Oak, is a whiskey brand from renowned blender Dixon Dedman. 2XO, is a blending process Dixon pioneered, where he re-barrels his hand-selected aged whiskey into new charred oak barrels to create a unique combination of intense flavors, character, and complexity with each blend.
Dixon’s vision is to revolutionize the category, a shift away from the overplayed nostalgic American whiskey storyline, and create an innovative Brand backed by the incredible liquid in the bottle.
The 2XO Brand consists 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).
