G-FORCE WHISKEY SERIES
Our inhouse produced and blended whiskey. Sweet caramel on the nose and a smooth mouthfeel. Smokey from the onset which quickly rounds out into beautiful notes of sweet corn, vanilla and caramel. Finishes very smooth with little to no burn.
Whiskey Finished in Maple Syrup Barrels
Maple syrup barrels are known to impart deep flavors to any whiskey. G-Force is the spirit we chose for these barrels as its flavor profile is known for its sweet-corn, vanilla and caramel with a super smooth finish. These barrels have imparted notes of an additional rich and creamy sweetness. Maple syrup on the nose and an extra-long maple syrup finish.
Whiskey Finished in Rum Barrels (Anticipated release Spring/Summer 2024)
Barnstormer Distillery previously released a “40 Winks” whiskey finished in rum barrels. It was a huge success and was by far our most popular spirit. We are currently finishing some of our onsite produced and aged whiskey in our onsite used rum barrels and are hoping to recreate that success.
Whiskey Finished in Honey Barrels (Anticipated release Summer 2024)
We are currently finishing some of our onsite produced and aged whiskey in our used honey barrels. The honey previously held in those barrels was produced by 4 hives located on our property. We are hoping that you will be able to taste some of the sweetness of our land in this spirit.
40 WINKS CINNAMON WHISKEY
40 Winks Cinnamon Whiskey
This Cinnamon Flavored Whiskey starts with a blend of bourbon mash aged in new American oak barrels. We use a cold distill method to lock in that fresh cinnamon flavor and then carefully blend only the cinnamon flavor concentrate back into the base Whiskey to create this unique spirit. No sugars, artificial flavors or colorings are added to this spirit before or after distillation. ENJOY!
SMALL BATCH RELEASE WHISKEY
Aged in 40 Winks barrels for more than 3 years makes this corn whiskey a STRAIGHT CORN WHISKEY. Known to be a softer sweeter spirit, freshly harvested corn with a touch of brown-butter and undertones of honey are on the nose. Sweet corn, caramel & vanilla round into lightly toasted toffee notes finishing on the back palate with cream corn & barrel spiced herbaceousness.
Containing more than 20% rye, this spirit is considered a HIGH RYE WHISKEY. Gentle spiciness and sweet nuttiness reminiscence to an almond sugar cookie on the nose. Layers of warm peppery spices paired with tones of maple syrup and caramel. Finishes with hints of orange peel undertones
RFD Vodka is Onsite distilled and named after the Rockford airport (the Former Camp Grant) which the distillery overlooks. The crystal clear product starts with 100% corn which is multiple distilled, using a Column Still and then sent thru our onsite Bain Marie Still to control time on copper for a clean finish. The Vodka is then filtered using coconut shell activated carbon which “softens” the distillate and creates an even cleaner finish. We then “proof” the spirit to 40% alcohol by volume.
RFD CUCUMBER VODKA
This first RFD “From the Farm” Vodka Series highlights the flavors that are found in the Midwest and more specifically on our specialty crop farm. Our Cucumber Flavored Vodka is created onsite by cold distilling under vacuum using fresh cucumbers grown on our farm. This process results in a fresh, clean and crisp spirit with no artificial flavorings or added sugars.
RFD HORSERADISH VODKA
Tim went a bit crazy on this one when he combined our clean and crisp RFD Vodka and fresh Horseradish. This RFD “From the Farm” Horseradish Vodka is created onsite by cold distilling under vacuum using fresh Horseradish grown on our farm. A true surprise on the palate. Earthy and savory with notes of radishes. Finishing slightly spicey and clean.
RFD DILL PICKLE VODKA
Inspired by our friends at Lena Brewery, this RFD “From the Farm” Dill Pickle Vodka is created onsite by cold distilling under vacuum using Dill Pickles, Pickle Juice and Pickling Spice. From the nose to the finish this spirit is a dilly pickle in a bottle. Finishing bright with a bit of brine.
RFD GINGER VODKA (Re-release Date: March 2024)
Tim is at it again combining our clean and crisp RFD Vodka and freshly ground Ginger. This RFD “From the Farm” Ginger Vodka is created onsite by cold distilling under vacuum using fresh Ginger, some grown on our farm. This process results in a fresh, clean and crisp spirit with no artificial flavorings or added sugars.
Flying Circus Amber Rum
This aged Silver Rum is a lighter more delicate version of its counterpart, the Caribbean Rum. Fruit Cake and dried fruit on the nose and a caramelly soft mouth feel. A slight coffee and brown sugar note on the onset with touches of caramel, raisin and herbal notes. Finishing smooth with a supple finish..
Flying Circus coffee Flavored Rum
Recipe No. 2, Batch No. 3 uses a blend of espresso beans along with our Silver Rum (cachaça). Cold brewing created a rich sweet coffee spirit. Notes of vanilla and dark chocolate. A perfect balance of sweet, bitter and acidic notes. This spirit gets its sweetness purely from our silver rum as there is no added sugar.
Dutch 45 Rum
Imported from Venezuela, this rum has sweet layers of caramel and candied fruits with a buttery mouth feel. Vanilla, pineapple and banana followed by citrus and fig & raisin. Finishes with a caramelized brown sugar.
Cootie Killer Moonshine (Retiring Early 2024)
The COVID 19 Pandemic of 2020 effected virtually every person on the face of the world in one way or another. After months of stress and hardships, we decided that people needed 2 things, a change and a good laugh.
So first, Barnstormer Distillery decided to take the experience gained in producing hand sanitizer and use some to think out of the box thinking to create a new limited edition special moonshine different from anything currently on the market. And secondly, give it a fun name to hopefully put a smile on your face.
Available as either Raw or Barrel Aged
