These 15 Gallon Bear Wallow Rye Whiskey Barrels aged a low-rye whiskey that favors smoothness over rye spice – though there are still peppery notes.

At 15 gallons, these freshly emptied, once used straight rye whiskey barrels from Bear Wallow are the next step for homebrewers who want to take their barrel-aging to the next level – or for small producers who don’t need to craft large quantities.

The low-rye mash bill of the spirit these barrels aged means there’s a little less spice level in the oak, but still a nice peppery burn that will transfer over to your aged beer, cider, mead, wine or other beverage.

Mash Bill
- 55% rye
- 35% corn
- 10% malted barley
