Broken Barrel Bourbon features a unique blend of corn, rye, and barley that makes it perfectly balanced to infuse. We partnered with an incredible world-class Kentucky Bourbon distillery to select the finest bourbon base for our products. The bourbon is aged a minimum of two years to be called a Kentucky Straight Bourbon, which also ensures a specific quality we're looking for before incorporate our Oak Bill™.
WHAT IS THE OAK BILL?
After a minimum of two years in new charred oak barrels, the bourbon is dumped to steel tanks, where each batch of Broken Barrel is hit with new French oak staves, ex-bourbon barrel staves, and a blend of ex-sherry cask staves.
40% French Oak Staves
40% Ex-Bourbon Cask Staves
20% Sherry Cask Staves
A note about Staves - there is a tremendous amount of surface area when using staves to age and flavor a whiskey - much more than merely using the inside of a barrel. There are several more surfaces making contact with the liquid, each adding its own character and flavor.
