Your Experience

We want to share the nuances of making the most sought after spirits in the world. Whether we guide you through the distillery, carefully select and mail samples for your convenience, or we call on the master distiller to choose the best of our reserve stock, we want your experience to be unparalleled. Here are a few highlights that ensure we are providing you with something unforgettable.

Select Your Brand

Selecting your own barrel is a one-of-a-kind experience that begins with choosing a brand from our exclusive portfolio. Each brand has its own unique flavor and comes from one of our historic distilleries: Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky; Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky; or A. Smith Bowman, located in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Visit the Distillery

After your brand selection, you’ll visit the distillery where your barrel awaits, aging to perfection. Upon your arrival, you’ll be taken on an extensive, behind-the-scenes tour where you will learn about the rich history of distilling.

Make your Selection

Following your personal tour, you will sample directly from several barrels chosen especially for you by our experts. First, you’ll taste the distinctive flavors straight from the barrel completely uncut. Then, at bottling proof, the natural aromas will shine through. Once you find the barrel that best reflects your discerning taste, we’ll send the barrel off to begin its journey to your front door.

Call on the Master Distiller

If you’re unable to visit one of our distilleries, we can mail you single barrel samples to taste and choose from, or our Master Distiller will skillfully select a barrel for you that you will undoubtedly appreciate as much as if you had hand-selected it yourself.
