A “Short Barrel” is a barrel that, upon bottling, has lost over 50% of its contents to angel’s share. Due to higher contact with air and oak, the whiskey inside aged differently, developing in a unique and powerful way. The select few bottles that come from it tell a story of withstanding aging, evaporation, and Kentucky seasons - the perfect pour that battled the elements and survived. Only a select few get a taste before it’s gone forever. What started as a small group in 2016, the Shortbarrel name has become a staple on home bars - assigned only to the barrels that meet our group’s high standards. We welcome you to our club and hope you appreciate as much as we do that no two barrels will be the same.
