The Spirit
Blend of straight bourbon whiskeys sourced, blended, and bottled by Barrell Craft Spirits in Louisville, Kentucky Limited release from Barrells Cask Finish Series Composed of a selection of 5-, 6-, 7-, and 10-year-old straight bourbon whiskeys distilled and aged in Indiana and Kentucky Derived mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley Partially finished in sustainably sourced Amburana casks Intense baking spice centered around cinnamon fills every nook and cranny of the tasting experience, providing a veil through which one experiences aromas of chocolate, walnut, and toasted sourdough. Driven by this cinnamon spice, the palate displays ginger beer, marmalade, and tarragon with hefeweizen, passionfruit, and honeycomb. Non-chill filtered; bottled at a cask strength of 58.21% ABV

Prized for its concentrated flavors of cinnamon, clove, and vanilla, Amburanaa hardwood tree native to South Americalends its distinct influence to this limited, inaugural release from Barrells Cask Finish Series. Notoriously difficult to work with on account of its intensity, the team at Barrell Craft Spirits demonstrates their blending expertise, tempering potentially overwhelming cinnamon notes from dominating the finished whiskey by layering in unfinished casks to ensure the bourbon shines through first and foremost.


The Distillery
Former marketing & technology entrepreneur and longtime home brewer Joe Beatrice founded Barrell Craft Spirits in 2013 in Louisville, Kentucky, to explore the unique effects of different distillation methods, barrels, and aging environments on cask strength spirits. Inspired by Scotlands long-established independent bottlers and their ability to elevate whisky through barrel-aging, Barrell sources and blends exceptional casks acquired from established spirits producers with which Joe and his team have cultivated close relationships. These connections within the tightly knit spirits community allow Barrell to obtain the best spirits available without compromise. Barrels are sourced from around the world and shipped to Barrells facilities in Kentucky for additional aging, blending, and bottling.

Bottlings of Barrell spirits are limited in nature with new releases hitting the market frequently. With literally dozens of awards under their belt, Barrell Craft Spirits whiskeys and rums have indeed spoken and loudly proclaimed themselves beyond worthy of every bit of hype and excitement surrounding each release.
About Barrell Craft Spirits
The idea behind Barrell Craft Spirits is to "explore the unique effects of different distillation methods, barrels and aging environments, and bottle them at cask strength." This is accomplished through outstanding relationships within the tightly knit spirits community and sourcing the best distillates available without compromise. By definition, the bottlings of Barrell Spirits are limited in nature with new releases hitting the market frequently. Barrels are sourced from around the country (and soon the world), shipped to Barrell's facilities in Georgetown and Frankfurt, Kentucky for additional aging and bottling. Barrell Craft Spirits is dedicated to moving towards complete transparency. However, some of their partners insist upon production non-disclosures.
