Our Founders Barrel Club is a small group of club members who gather together quarterly, taste from a barrel, learn about the unique selected barrel, then hand bottle straight from the barrel expression.  It’s a community of bourbon and whiskey enthusiasts built around community, great whiskey, engaging conversations and fantastic food. We are currently full, but please contact us to inquire about joining the waitlist.
