The Barrel Mill expands barrel line and triples production capabilities
“An overwhelming demand for barrels over the past few years put us in the unfortunate situation of having to turn down business because we were at capacity,” states Richard Hobbs, Sales and Marketing Manager for The Barrel Mill. “We are happy to announce that period is behind us and we are accepting orders from both current and new customers. The addition of new equipment and people allowed us to build a sizable inventory of barrels, ready to ship.”
“I was shopping for a barrel supplier, and happened to go to a whiskey awards dinner. Out of 26 winners, 25 had been aged in Barrel Mill barrels. We aged Whiskey Advocate’s Craft Whiskey of the Year in Barrel Mill Barrels.”
– Paul Hletko,
"The spirits industry is a highly competitive worldwide market, known for its product educated consumer base and brand loyalty. Bringing a new product into this kind of market is tough. But anyone that tastes Defiant Single Malt Whisky, comes back for more. The Infusion Spirals from The Barrel Mill have been a key component in this journey and in our spirit aging process. Without the use of these spirals, we would not have a product on the shelves yet, much less winning awards left and right, including "The Best New Whisky of the Year." Thanks for all you have helped us achieve....”.

“Crisp Demerara sugar; sumptuous texture, aided by melt-in-the-mouth natural caramels; an excellent outpouring of citrus-tinged vanilla; for a year-old bourbon the sugars have accumulated charmingly (89=excellent).”
