Barrell Craft Spirits Has A New Private Release Bourbon Series

Barrell Craft Spirits has seen what’s said to be wide success with its Private Release Rum and Whiskery Series, a number of bottlings blended from sourced spirits across its network that are blended and, in some cases, finished in other cask types. They’ve now extended this format into a line of bourbons.

The new Barrell Private Release Bourbon Series, according to those behind it, is a range of 49 unique releases marred in ex-bourbon barrels. For the special release selected bourbons were “sourced from Kentucky, Tennessee andIndiana, spread across four different ages and then blended them into 49 different recipes. Each blend number has its own ratios, printed on the label and is constructed in its own ex-bourbon barrel. With each release, a new set of base bourbons is selected, so every recipe is only made once.”

The Private Release Bourbon project was designed to synthesize a growing demand for exclusive store, group, and state ‘picks’ with our belief that blending can make bourbons that span the greatest spectrum of flavor,” said Company Founder Joe Beatrice in a prepared statement.”Our Private Release program allows an entirely new set of options for those looking for unique and exclusive products.”

In some cases those interested in this series will find bottles of it sold here and there in different markets. It “also offer retailers, bourbon clubs and whiskey aficionados alike something truly unique.” Each offering is produced as a limited release, has a distinct flavor profile and contains between 150-180 total 750ml bottles, with price of around $110.

Barrell has added special section to its website which contains the full list. Suggestions for where to buy will be updated as they become available. You’ll find more official information on each below from Barrell.
