The charred American Oak barrel is a cornerstone of American whiskey. Rich flavors of vanilla and caramel are common descriptors. This barrel is ideal for the production of fruit notes through esterification, dark color and mellowing from the char layer.


We often create custom toast profiles and char combinations when a distillery is looking for a unique barrel to showcase a special mash bill or aging regime.
