It’s not the size of the still, it’s the skill of distill. At Barley Creek, we craft small batches of great big spirits, including whiskey, rum and moonshine. Our on-site distillery hosts a 50-gallon, six-column Hillbilly still that was hand-crafted in Western Kentucky and then customized to control temperature variations to within 1/100th of a degree.
Big-time brewing mojo, that’s what. At Barley Creek, we’ve been having a blast brewing craft beers for more than 20 years, and we’re bringing that same passion for innovation, flavor and excellence to our distilled spirits. We start with pristine water from our own 700’ artesian well, and then add only the best ingredients. Barley Creek Whiskey uses three different types of smoked malt for an extremely smooth finish. Our whiskey is then matured in small, custom barrels to maximize contact with the wood surface and enhance flavor. Barley Creek Spiced Rum is made with Blackstrap molasses and pure organic, GMO-free cane sugar. We age our rum in small barrels with orange zest and a secret blend of natural spices. It’s delicious and pirate approved!
Stay tuned as we expect to introduce new Barley Creek spirits in the next year.
We’re not ready to spill all the details yet, but let’s just say it rhymes with Yodka.
