By law, bourbon must be aged in a new, charred oak barrel. But once that barrel is used for bourbon, its life is far from over. It goes on to age and flavor not only other whiskeys, but beers, wines, other spirits, syrups, soy sauces, and so much more!
One direction it takes is to be disassembled, have additional staves (the individual strips of wood that make up the barrel) added, and become a new, bigger barrel known as a hogshead.
And that’s how we got to The Oaken Hogg. From the over 150 whiskeys and bourbon barrel-aged wines and beers we serve, to how we use those very barrels to decorate our bar and flavor our cocktails, we celebrate everything these prized barrels mother. Stop in and see what we mean!
