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 vodka, whiskey, spiced 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 our specifications.
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. In addition to our flagship whiskey, spiced rum and vodka, we craft a line of flavored moonshines, such as Lemonade Moonshine, Coffee Moonshine and Maple Moonshine. And, because we know you can’t take your bartender with you everywhere, we’ve also rolled out a line of canned ready-to-drink cocktails, like our Moscow Mule, Barley Palmer, and 11:01 Vodka Cranberry. They’re perfect to take with you on your next outing.
Barley Creek Whiskey uses two-row pale malt, cherry smoked malt, and rye for an extremely smooth finish. We double-distill our whiskey and age it at 120 proof in small, custom American oak barrels to maximize contact with the wood and enhance flavor. Bottled at 80 proof, our whiskey is woody, creamy, and slightly sweet, with notes of vanilla and pear.
Barley Creek Spiced Rum is made with Blackstrap molasses and pure organic, GMO-free cane sugar. We distill the rum twice, then age it in American oak barrels for a minimum of six months, with orange zest and a secret blend of natural spices. Our rum is warm and sweet, with notes of caramel and cinnamon. It’s delicious and pirate-approved!
Our 11:01 Vodka is corn-based and distilled to 191 proof. We use our own artesian well-water and extensive carbon filtering to craft a clean, neutral vodka with just a hint of sweetness. We also make Orange, Raspberry and Vanilla flavored vodkas.
This aint’ your great-grandfather’s moonshine. Our white whiskey moonshines are smooth and infused with flavor. Our flagship flavors include:
Coffee Moonshine – made with organic, decaf cold-brewed Colombian Coffee.
Maple Moonshine – made with pure PA maple syrup
Lemonade Moonshine – made with freshly-squeezed citrus juice from lemons, limes and oranges, plus pure cane sugar.
This is officially the best thing since beer in a can. Check out our line-up of amazing, ready-to-drink canned cocktails, including Moscow Mule, 11:01 Vodka Cranberry, and Barley Palmer.
