Our 10 and 30 gallon barrels are made from Minnesota White Oak. Four our bourbon, we use a #3 Char barrel that provides the most vanillins. Caramel and toffee flavors are also present and provide a beautiful amber color. We use a #4 Char barrel for our rye which adds smoke, coffee, and chocolate flavors and a darker color.
Our barrels are aged on oak racks in an open air rack house located in the hills of Appalachia, where they experience the full temperature changes of the four seasons. This gives our bourbon and rye a smooth, distinct flavor.
