We’re excited to announce our “Taste, Choose & Bottle Your Own” Cask Strength Bourbon and Cask Strength Rye release event!

Signup for your 15-minute time slot to come into the distillery and taste directly from 3 different barrels we have selected from our warehouses. Choose your barrel(s) and then fill your own bottles directly from spigots which will be drilled into each barrel. Decide whether you want to filter out the barrel char as you fill your bottle, or leave it for a true “straight from the barrel” experience. You will write the barrel number and whiskey proof directly on your bottle, cork it and seal it!

The Cask Strength Bourbon Release will be September 9th and 10th, and the Cask Strength Rye Release will be September 16th and 17th. Each time slot has 4 spots available. Price will be $69.95 per bottle with all taxes included and the limit is 2 bottles per person for each release. We expect each barrel to be between 121 and 123 proof. There are limited time slots available so be sure to click the links below and signup now!
