George Dickel Released a New Single Barrel Offering that Offers Drinkers a One-of-a-Kind Liquid Experience
Available for purchase by the barrel and by the bottle, those who order a barrel, are able to add custom branding and messaging to their bottles and choose from the highest proof options that were stored in the top tiers of the warehouse. Those buying-by-the bottle can expect to see a variety of proofs of the liquid at their retailers.
While no two casks are the same and each will vary in taste, consumers can expect a rich and complex liquid in every bottle. The variability that makes single barrel spirits so special is strongly expressed in these older liquids, with the influence of slight variations in their aging conditions growing over time. Tasting notes range from notes of vanilla, toffee and treacle to rich leather, saddle oil and wood, to a more delicate perfume of fruit or lavender notes. Color will be dark, rich leather brown from the many years spent in new American Oak. ABV also ranges from 40% to 52.3%!
Starting now, George Dickel Single Barrel aged at least 15 years is available for a suggested retail price of $59.99 per 750 ml bottle in CA, DE, FL, GA, TN, TX (Additional markets coming in Jan. 2021)!
