Barrell Bourbon and Barrell Whiskey are setting the new standard for sourced whiskey bottlers, especially in terms of transparency and overall experience. The whiskies are bottled at cask strength without the use of chill-filtration, allowing connoisseurs to try them in their pure undiluted state. And the best part is they’ll actually tell you where they’re coming from, who’s making them and what the mashbill is. No more smoke in mirrors, or tales of ancient relatives who might have made whiskey, or misleading claims about old or proprietary recipes that don’t exist. The combination of integrity and exceptional quality make these must try.
