BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (Feb. 7, 2023) – Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Breckenridge Distillery–the world’s highest, and one of the most-awarded craft distilleries in the U.S., today announced the third edition of Sexy Motor Oil, a limited release beer-barreled whiskey. Following last year’s release, this year’s rendition of Sexy Motor Oil was aged in barrels from Breckenridge Brewery to bring unique flavors of tropical banana and apple emanating over a layer of floral dark chocolate, caramel, and honey.

By aging Sexy Motor Oil in beer barrels used by Breckenridge Brewery for 10-13 months, the whiskey is able to pick up and mingle with flavors from the beer that had previously been in the barrels. The whiskey is then brought to the ideal proof by the team at the distillery, which for this edition comes to a 109.5 proof. The limited-edition Sexy Motor Oil will be available for purchase at Breckenridge Distillery and the Breckenridge Distillery Tasting Room on Main Street in Breckenridge, Colorado, starting February 10, 2023.

“We’re thrilled to continue our tradition of exchanging barrels with Breckenridge Brewery to release another fabulous whiskey,” said Bryan Nolt, Founder and CEO of Breckenridge Distillery. “Playing with the barrels from the brewery allows us to create new flavors, particularly the sweet flavors our customers love like fruits, chocolate, caramel and honey.”

Breckenridge Distillery and Breckenridge Brewery are no strangers to barrel exchange programs. In October of last year, the two iconic Breckenridge businesses released the second Buddy Pass barrel exchange program–an Imperial Stout Cask Finished Whiskey and Whiskey-Barrel Aged Oatmeal Stout Beer–that is now available nationwide.
