Immerse yourself in the innovative spirit of Arkansas's rice industry with our exclusive 25-gallon barrels from Rock Town Distillery. These barrels, originally used to age a unique bourbon blend, reflect founder Phil Brandon's creative venture into using locally-grown rice. The bourbon's mashbill, comprising 54% corn, 36% Arkansas rice, and 10% malted barley, was matured for two years, resulting in a distinctive flavor profile.

The bourbon that once aged in these barrels presents a warm, well-balanced nose with delightful notes of toasted bread, Rice Krispies treats, marshmallow, honey, and a caramel hint. On the palate, it reveals an intriguing mix of linseed oil, chili powder, and lemon zest, offering a spicy and tart start. This initial sharpness gently gives way to subtle flavors of anise, caramel, and vanilla. The finish is medium-length, maintaining a perfect harmony of tartness with lingering touches of anise and caramel.

Now, these barrels stand ready to impart their unique character to your next aging project. Whether you're aging beer, cider, wine, or spirits, these barrels will infuse your brew with the innovative essence of Rock Town Distillery's rice bourbon. The barrels' rich history and distinctive flavor profile make them an excellent choice for crafters and enthusiasts seeking to experiment with unique, complex flavors in their creations.
