For us, the American Whiskey category is all about creativity. Fewer rules and regulations than bourbon means a wider variety of options. This allows us to be more experimental when it comes to sourcing, blending, and creating batches of whiskey that are truly greater than the sum of their parts. Our goal is simple, but audacious: Become the most creative, forward-thinking, and progressive whiskey blenders in the nation.


That doesn’t mean we’re compromising our principles. We’re still meticulous in sourcing the best whiskeys and finishing casks from our favorite producers around the world. A global mindset and years of experience in the industry mean we can get our hands on rare and unusual whiskeys that no other company can.


When blending every limited-edition batch, our goal is always to create whiskeys that are unique and expressive of their ingredients. That philosophy is reflected in our transparent labeling, which gives you as much information as possible about exactly what’s in the bottle. Think of it as a road map to a brand-new whiskey experience.

American Whiskey Distilled in Indiana, Tennessee, and Kentucky

Crafted and bottled in Kentucky

118.4 proof cask strength bottling


Aged in American white oak barrels; finished in Bourbon, American brandy, and Amaro barrels, and Cognac casks

Mash bill: corn, rye (high and low), malted barley


Barrell Whiskey Batch 005 is a spice driven blend of 9-year-old whiskeys finished in Amaro barrels, American Brandy barrels, Bourbon barrels, and Cognac casks. We finished each whiskey separately and assembled a final blend that also includes Straight Bourbon. This finish then blend technique allows us to focus on the key flavors of each component first, and then on harmony and precision while blending. We believe that this batch is far greater than the sum of its parts. 


A balance of honey and spice, this whiskey conjures memories of old candy shops and autumn drams. Enjoy a dark, brooding sweetness balanced with wood and a hint of fire. The 118.4 proof unravels into long folds of complexity and contrast.


Appearance: A core of worn copper tapering out to golden straw edges.

Nose: Sweet and captivating, with inviting aromas of apple pie drizzled with spring blossom honey, caramel corn and honeysuckle. It’s punctuated with robust notes of resinous herbs (rosemary, bay leaf) and enriched by soft, savory tones (velouté, crushed almond).

Palate: It opens sweet and herbaceous, with notes of molasses, maple sugar, Mary Jane candies, and licorice root.

Finish: Mouthwatering, with a spicy signature of clove oil, red chili oil, and Rainier cherries.

With a few drops of spring water

The whiskey gets juicier, bringing out nose and palate notes of violet, purple plum, blackberry, candied walnut, and shiso. The palate sees greater development still, growing earthier and more complex (autumn leaves, peat moss, and pu-erh tea).

Barrell Whiskey 004 was distilled in Indiana and Tennessee and aged for 11 years in used American oak barrels, then finished in rum casks and rye barrels and bottled in Kentucky at 120.6 proof. We selected barrels of a Tennessee bourbon and an Indiana whiskey for this batch. Separately, the two whiskeys were finished in either rum casks left over from Barrell Rum Batch 001 production, or rye barrels to add structure and spice. We made four combinations: Tennessee whiskey finished in rum casks, Tennessee whiskey finished in rye barrels, Indiana whiskey finished in rum casks, and Indiana whiskey finished in rye barrels. We then selected and blended a number of barrels of both whiskeys with both finishes to create something really special.

Caramelized pineapple, rich warm coconut milk and nutmeg give way to steaming spice stone fruit compote and raw cacao.  The 120.6 proof beguiles with faint whiffs of Caribbean forest and complex aromatics like cardamom, clove, and kaffir lime.  Vanilla paste mingles with puffs of cinnamon swirled sweet butter atop crunchy sourdough toast. 


Appearance: Sun dried golden hay at the edges meets deep, viscous butterscotch legs that meld into the burnished copper core.  Spins of the wrist flick light through and across yielding bursts of gold.

Nose: Sweet tropical fruits mixed with deeply saturated wood and banana leaves.  Lingering vanilla and freshly crushed sugar cane melts into corn fritters and citrus oil.

Palate: Creamy milk sugar and caramelized plantains abound amidst smoky homemade butterscotch pudding.  Richly textured, each sip leads to a drying finish that surprises and delights.

Finish: Cascading smoke and fat coat the inside of the mouth.  Roasted grapefruit and sweet and tangy lemon curd follow providing a sumptuous end that you will want to repeat.

With a few drops of spring water

This whiskey takes on a softer texture, teeming with dark chocolate and cast iron cornbread.  Further sips evoke fruit and sea salt as the liquid coats the tongue and mouth, culminating in a mesmerizing finish.

Luxuriant Sherry-soaked graham cracker crust peach cobbler leaps onto the tongue and immediately leads to mustardy slices of crusty rye bread.  It continues with flavors of caramelized brown butter and warm vanilla custard accompanied by broiled grapefruit. The 123.8 Proof is unmistakable yet rich, soothing, and understated.

Blended from 7 and 8 year-old whiskeys aged in oak, this American Whiskey is unlike any other. Imagine a brioche French toast dripping with fresh-churned butter and dark maple syrup. With each bite, a spiciness reminiscent of fine, stone ground chocolate lingers in the back of the mouth. Soft to the palate throughout, the next sip is always welcome. The mash is a mix of corn, rye, and malted barley. Akin to a “Vatted Malt,” no neutral grain spirit is added. We do not chill filter, a common practice that removes natural, flavor rich oils. Only a coarse particulate filter strains the small bits of charred oak surrendered by the barrel. Like many great whiskeys, this spirit has aged gently in ex-bourbon barrels. As much as we love the intense flavor of a bourbons, the abundant wood sugars in the new barrels required for their production mask many subtler, complex flavors. This spirit’s patient aging in used cooperage yields a drier dram open to revealing these subtle essences of taste.

Crusty, egg battered brioche – French toast dripping in butter and dark maple syrup. Brooding alcohol explodes right up front, no mistaking the 122.5 Proof stuffing of each slurp. Thin rivulets of bruleed corn pudding. Rich swirls of darkly scented, spicy Mexican chocolate become soft eruptions at the finish, leaving you with visions of the next sip.


Appearance: Brilliant and golden, deeply shimmering and clear at the edges.

Nose: Sweet tobacco, bittersweet chocolate nibs, crushed persimmon.

Palate: Anson Mills-Stone Ground Grits with long cooked stone fruits.

Finish: Great curves, irresistible, sensory, leading to a lightly toasted hazelnut brittle.

With a few drops of spring water

Appearance: Deeply golden in color, ever-present natural haze from mouth coating fats.

Nose: Cut herbs enfolded in sweet cream- evolving into drying acidity.

Palate: Creamy and elegant – minced pipe tobacco and aged fruitcake.

Finish: Crushed schist dripping in raw honey simple syrup.
