There is nothing quite like selecting your very own barrel of whiskey. That's why we try to do it as often as we can. About 12 times per year if possible. Single barrels offer a rare opportunity to try something that no one else has had the chance to. These are barrels of whiskey that display unique characteristics and flavors that are not typically found in their mass-produced counterparts.
Thanks to our retail partners, like Liquor 'n' Wine in St. Charles, IL, we have been given the chance to expand our Single Barrel portfolio and partner on some truly special single barrels that we are excited to share with you.
