Single Barrel Selection Exerience

Boone County Distilling offers a unique Single Barrel Program where you will get to personally select your own private barrel. Because each barrel matures at it’s own pace, all selections are bottled at barrel proof, allowing you to choose the flavors and characteristics that you enjoy.

Our distilling team will carefully select four barrels of our Small Batch Straight Bourbon Whiskey for you to taste. If you can’t make the trip to Boone County, we will be happy to choose an exceptional barrel for you. If you are coming to visit and personally select your barrel, our Single Barrel representative will give you a personally guided tour through our distillery and rick house. At the end of the tour, you will be escorted to our one-of-a-kind barrel room where your selection will begin.

We’ll guide you through the tasting process and discuss various tasting techniques while you select your favorite barrel. Interested in Learning More? Check out the answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
