Though it is often debated, the team at Broken Barrel firmly hold true that barrels account for roughly 80% of the final flavour of a whiskey.
The flavours imparted from contact with oak are what create the whiskeys we all love and enjoy. Rather than put their whiskey into barrels, they instead explored what happens if they did the reverse. Instead of finishing their whiskey in barrels, they finish the whiskey with broken barrel staves. Broken Barrel chose to put wood into whiskey – and the results were unbelievable.
Taste their methods. Share their madness.
