If you don't know Barrell, you should. They're a tiny company—with just 9 employees—that's become a cult hit with spirits connoisseurs. They source spirits from 60+ distilleries to make their proprietary blends. Collectors chase these one of a kind, limited-run, numbered bottlings down. They're often sold out within days or weeks of their release.They also get all kinds of awards. Perhaps the biggest accolade came recently when Barrell beat William LaRue Weller to win Forbes' Best American Whiskey, judged by the renowned Fred Minnick. This was a totally unprecedented upset.
