These 15 Gallon West Fork Chocolate Rye Bourbon Barrels will be a treat for any homebrewer or small batch producer looking for a less common, but no less enjoyable, flavor profile.

West Fork Whiskey Co. aged a limited run of its Chocolate Malted Rye Bourbon in these barrels for 2 years and 6 months. The high rye bourbon carries familiar spicy notes, but also carries dryer, dark chocolate notes from the chocolate malted rye – which is rye that has been roasted to a level high enough to caramelize its natural sugars.

West Fork Whiskey Co. is based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Their spirits are 100% Indiana from grain to glass.

Important notes: Not all barrels will have a West Fork Whiskey Co. logo on the head as shown in some pictures. Remember, these are used barrels, so expect small imperfections and cracks on the barrel. Each barrel has been inspected to ensure they are liquid tight. All barrels come with a wood bung.
