Custom 5 or 10 Gallon Whiskey Barrel

Your very own 5 or 10 gallon whiskey barrel and your very own whiskey.

First the Barrel:

Why Small barrels? Smaller Barrels speed up the aging process. The Smaller Barrel Size also makes it more affordable to buy the entire barrel. The science is that the higher surface area in small barrels means more contact with the spirit. 5-10 Gallon Barrels produce aged Whiskey in as little as 18 Months. You choose the name that will be displayed on the barrel head. Whether it’s our logo, your name, your company name/logo, or your cat’s name – it’s up to you!

Second the Whiskey:

You choose from one of our standard mash bills. We will distill, fill, and age the whiskey. Current Available Mash bills:

  • 70% Corn, 25% Rye, 5% Barley (Whiskey/Bourbon)
  • 60% Corn, 35% Rye, 5% Barley (Whiskey/Bourbon)
  • 70% Corn, 25% Wheat, 5% Barley (Whiskey/Bourbon)
  • 60% Corn, 35% Wheat, 5% Barley (Whiskey/Bourbon)
  • 100% Corn (Whiskey)

If you want a Mashbill outside or normal production, it will be considered “Experimental” and may be subject to additional fees for both distillation and bottling.

Now the Fun

These adopted barrels will be available for you to visit and judge the progress at 12 months after barreling and every 6 months thereafter till harvesting. You can even come and help us proof and bottle it! Depending on Angel Share and final Proof desired, a 10 gallon barrel MAY yield 30-45 Bottles. Custom labels are available as an add-on at time of bottling.

*The Barnstormer Barrel Guarantee: We never want or customers to be disappointed. We recognize that due to differences in every barrel, we can never be sure of the characteristics of the final spirit from any one barrel at harvest time. If the final Spirit at harvest time is below acceptable flavor characteristics, if desired, your reward bottles may be swapped with other bottles in the current Whiskey Inventory. The Barrel is still yours to enjoy.
