Every batch of Barrell Bourbon is unique. We welcome the distinct nuances of character, flavor, and color in each batch. Much as an expert craftsmans choice of wood makes each piece of fine furniture unique, the decisions made by the master distiller introduce subtle variations into each batch of bourbon. We take pride in being able to select and share these different bourbons with you.
At Barrell Bourbon, we support the time-honored traditions of small batch craft distilling, a patient art designed to give you a better tasting bourbon. At every stage of bourbon making, subtle choices are made that impact the whiskey. Though all bourbons are made from the same basic ingredients, its the choices the master distiller makes that shapes his creation.
The combination, type, and source of grains (the mash bill) and the specific yeast used for fermentation
The amount of char specified for the new oak barrels used to age the bourbon
The location of the rack house and the location of the barrel in the rack house where the bourbon ages. Whether or not the environment is temperature controlled and how much sunlight and humidity the barrel experiences over its lifetime
Needless to say, theres more to bourbon than just the recipe.
Our passion is bringing you craft distilled bourbon at barrel strength. We believe the complexity and concentration of flavor is greatest when the bourbon comes right from the barrel. Nothing added, nothing removed. Never diluted. Experience what bourbon really tastes like.
How you drink your bourbon is up to you. We recommend trying it neat and then add a little water or ice to reveal a whole range of flavors. Everything from the nose, appearance, initial taste on your palette and finish will evolve.
|Many exceptional whiskeys never reach the discerning palates of those who would most appreciate them. Barrells mission is to find and curate the best barrels and batches of whiskey, wherever they may be. Left alone, this product would likely be forgotten or blended with other whiskeys, forfeiting its unique flavor and style. To preserve the singular characteristics of each batch, we bottle straight from the barrel. Nothing added, nothing removed, exactly as we first experienced it. We take pride in our small part of preserving and presenting new and unique whiskeys to the people who enjoy them most.
Unlike traditional distilleries, we are not tied to recreating a single recipe or style. Every barrel and every batch we bring to you will be different. Barrell thrives on and embraces this freedom. Unlike certain bottlers and blenders, we have no illusions as to our place in the industry. The unpredictability of barrel aging is something to celebrate, not stifle. We, in essence, provide the stage on which the whiskey may speak for itself.
