Flavour GuideLooking to try barrel aging rum, whiskey and tequila? This guide will take you through the steps involved for your barrel journey.
Rum, Whisky & Tequila
Prep and cure our oak barrel
Flavor Your Barrel
Kick of your first batch with a white or dark rum. After 3 or 4 weeks you’ve flavoured your barrel with beautiful sugar cane or molasses notes that will come through in your next batch.
A Silky, Smooth, Second Batch
Once, you’ve completed your first rum batch you can move onto whiskey. But we prefer to make a second rum batch. This makes our rum silky smooth and leaves lots of flavour in your barrel to impart into your whiskey batch. We do this second batch for 60 days.
Flavour Memory for Whiskey
The rum batches have created a flavor memory in your barrel. It’s stained with rum notes and a sugarcane finish that is going to come through in the next batch. Now we’re moving onto aging whiskey. Age it according to taste. We start tasting after three weeks and every week afterwards until we’ve developed our desired taste.
From here you can do a second or third batch of whiskey. Or, you can move on to Tequila! Start tasting your tequila after 6 weeks and every week thereafter until you get to your desired flavor.
