barrell craft spirits


Barrell Craft Spirits, based in Louisville, Kentucky, is an independent blender and bottler of unique, aged, cask strength sourced whiskey and rum, recognized for its blending expertise. We design, produce, and launch Spirits with a focus on what people want now and not what has been successful in the past. This affords us access to some of the most interesting and delicious spirits in the world.


Our goal is to select and blend products that explore different distillation methods, barrels and aging environments, and bottle them at cask strength. Every batch is produced as a limited release and has an intentionally distinct flavor profile.

Barrell Craft Spirits was awarded Best Bourbon twice at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) - in 2017 and again in 2020. Other SFWSC awards include Best Small Batch Bourbon and Best Overproof Rum, as well as 21 Double Gold medals and 15 Gold medals. We’ve received high honors at the NY International Spirits Competition, LA Spirits Competition, and Ultimate Spirits Challenge (USC), including Chairman’s Trophy for Barrell Dovetail. Barrell Craft Spirits is highly rated by Whisky Advocate and was named Best American Whiskey of 2018 in Forbes. Our award-winning line of products is currently sold in 48 states throughout the U.S.
