Private Single Barrel and Small Batch Whiskey Programs

Want to buy a whole barrel of whiskey? Read about how to do it, and consult this guide. Bear in mind: Due to high demand, some barrel purchase programs have been placed on hold, or have long waiting lists. Begin by setting up a selection session with a participating retailer. Unsure if your favorite whisky retailer participates? Look for “private selection” picks in their bourbon aisle or contact the distilleries below to assist with finding a retailer in your area. Updated 3/30/2020
