The Barrell Private Release Series is a project in detailed blending on a scale small enough to allow extreme precision. This is the first time in Barrel Craft Spirits company history that they have offered “micro” blends to the public.
The Private Release Series lets the company exercise their blending expertise while maintaining a single barrel-like scale controlled entirely by hand and by palate. The company's goal is always to maximize the best attributes of each component. Every ounce of every ingredient changes the overall character of these blends, as does the barrel that each one is aged in. For that reason, these barrels take months to polish and perfect. While the company may be able to replicate the recipe for these releases, the unique nature of each ingredient and the barrel they are married in makes every bottling singularly special.
