Bourbon + Sandalwood Soy Candle- 9oz Amber Jar


When we were house hunting in 2016, we found the number of basement bars in Milwaukee staggering in both number and individualization. Drinking culture in Wisconsin is well established, and the phenomena of crafting your own bar at home is something we are fascinated by.

We both agree that drinking in Wisconsin has a certain smell. We're not talking "bar at 2am smell", but rather the aromas of good liquor muddled with the smell of the woods- whether from nature or from the inevitable wood paneling and handcrafted wood tables and bars you find in basement bars, supper clubs, and local watering holes.

This Yeti, Bourbon + Sandalwood is the first in our Boozy Wisconsin collection. It's a complex blend of the warmth of bourbon- charred oak and smoke, a hint of cherry and a little pit of leather and pipe tobacco. It's tempered with the woodsy and earthy notes of sandalwood. Not to toot our own horn too much, but it's pretty fantastic. Even for the non bourbon drinker.

This candle is hand poured and contains 100% soy wax, a cotton wick, and premium quality fragrance and essential oils. Yes- this is the same fragrance as in the past. Just a new label.

Soy burns remarkably clean and long- expect this guy to burn for 40-50 hours. And when it’s gone, simply wash out the jar with hot soapy water and use it to hold little treasures.

Its dimensions are:
Height: 3.7 inches
Diameter: 2.75 inches

Candles will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail.


We accept major credit cards and Etsy gift cards.

Shipping from United States

Candles will be shipped domestically via USPS Priority Mail.

Candles are heavy. We err on the side of initially charging too much for shipping, but will refund any shipping overages over $2.00.

For all international shipping (We are US based), any customs, VAT or duty fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer.

International packages will ship by USPS First Class International Package Service. This is generally the lowest cost shipping option but it does mean your package can take anywhere from 2- 4 weeks to arrive.

Returns and exchange details

Candles...especially soy candles.... have been known to melt before you want them to. If we're shipping to an especially hot part of the country- we'll send the buyer a note before shipping to see if a faster shipping method may be a better option.

But we can't predict a hot delivery truck, or sitting in the sun on a runway. If your candles arrive in less than perfect condition, let us know. We'll do our best to make it right- either with a replacement or a refund.

Our candles are completely handmade- variations in the texture and look of the wax will vary from candle to candle and do not affect the performance of the candle. This is entirely normal, expected and not considered defects.

We take refunds or exchanges on a case-by-case basis. We do require the product to be returned to our studio before a refund will be issued. Contact us and we'll do our best to ensure you are a happy camper.


All Big White Yeti products are made in our non-smoking but pet friendly studio. Our furry co-workers Alex and Boris are kept away supplies and finished products as much as possible.
