Founded in 2015 by Ben Loseke, a grape and wine expert, we focus on setting our beverage producers up for success by standing behind our product - every time. While Ben would hate to know we’re bragging up his credentials - we think it’s kinda important here. Dr. Loseke holds a Ph.D in viticulture (grape growing) and takes the science seriously. What does that mean for you? Our wine barrels are properly treated (steamed, ozoned and gassed) and our bourbon and whiskey barrels are FRESH and leak-free.
He knows the science behind what makes a good barrel turn out a great beverage - everything from micro-oxidation to the nasty little bugs that might derail your project. And for the stuff that he isn’t an expert in? He hires the right people. That’s why we have in-house brewers on our team ready to answer your questions and help you craft some great beverages.
