Adopt a barrel

Adopt a barrel

You love our whiskey and now you want the ultimate collectible keepsake… the barrel!

We’re cranking up our whiskey production and you can help.  Become the proud adoptive parent of a rye or bourbon barrel. (your choice). Barrel adoption is great for home brewers and whiskey enthusiasts.  Adopt your barrel today for $400.

Here is how it works:

  1. We will fill your barrel with whiskey and put it in the barrel room for a year to age.
  2. Once it’s done, we’ll contact you and invite you to come help us bottle the whiskey from that barrel.
  3. Once bottled, you get 6 bottles of our whiskey (retail $228) and you get to keep the empty barrel (retail $200).
  4. You’ll get a commemorative certificate marking your barrel adoption if you’d like to give it as a gift.

If you have a special date you need the barrel by, let us know and we can work with you to make arrangements. Please note, we are unable to ship bottles or barrels. So to participate, you need to be able to pick your barrel up when it is ready.
