Explore the grand tradition of distilling whiskey by making and aging three distinct styles of whiskey; Kentucky Bourbon, Tennessee Bourbon and Highland Malt Scotch Whiskey with our Personalized Whiskey Kit. You can use the Barrel by itself to make a spirit more complex or start with a vodka and add the essence of your choice. The variations in each oak tree used to make the staves, and the individuality of the charring process give each of our American oak barrels a distinct flavor profile and look. Whiskey Kit includes a 2L Barrel with black steel bands, wood display stand, bung and spigot, paper funnel, barrel cleaning kit and three 20ml bottles of essence with easy to follow instructions. Please specify personalization. The first line is open for anything you wish to have laser engraved. The second line is the name of your distillery, the third line is the city and state and fourth line is for the established date with a four-digit year. Oak Barrel measures about 7.5”l x 5”w x 5”h and the display stand measures about 6.3”l x 5.5”w x 2.25”h.

HOW IT WORKS
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

• Start by curing your barrel (instructions below)
• Pour most of a 750ml bottle of 40% alc./vol. grain alcohol, neutral vodka or swish alcohol into the barrel
• Add 1 bottle of your desired Essence per liter of alcohol and fill the barrel with the remaining alcohol
• SHAKE WELL to mix thoroughly
• It's best when aged for 2 or more weeks, but if you can't wait... DRINK NOW!
• Clean barrels with cleaning kit (included) after 2-3 uses

CURE YOUR BARREL
• Tightly insert the spigot using a mallet or place a sloth over the spigot and gently hammer it in
• Fill with hot water and insert the bung
• Allow 3 to 5 days for the barrel to completely seal
• Once cured, fill the barrel with your favorite spirit and place the bung in to remove any air
Do not submerge your barrel in water!

AGING SPIRITS
• Due to the higher surface area of the 2L barrel, spirits will age 8x to 10x faster than the standard 52-gallon barrel
• Turn the barrel a quarter turn weekly to redistribute the liquid contact with the charred oak
• Age to taste
• Drink from the barrel or pour into a glass container to stop the aging

STORING BETWEEN USES
• Dissolve storing tablets (included) in a glass of water
• Pour into the barrel and top off with water

Every barrel will develop its own individual flavor profile. This is due to the individuality of each tree, each stave, the amount of charring, climate, season, size of barrel, etc.… No two barrels will be alike. Monitor your barrel’s performance for future batches, but know that each batch will take a bit longer than the previous
