Here’s to the conservation of seagrass!
Why is the extra letter “L" in Barrell Craft Spirits? Company founder — Joe Beatrice — just ain’t saying. But he will tell you all day long about his passion for the work that they do to preserve unique orphan casks of American Whiskey.
Founded in 2014, Barrell Craft Spirits scoops up extra casks of premium Bourbon and Rye and bottles ‘em up at full strength. Each batch is completely different. Sometimes the coolest casks on the market are Tennessee-style Whiskeys, sometimes they’re Kentucky Bourbon. The good stuff could be straight, or it could be a finished wood. The point is that they find the best odd lots and “left-overs” that would more likely be tossed into a generic blend and sell it to us in all of their glory.
Barrell Seagrass Rye Whiskey is their special collab with The Ocean Foundation that will donate a portion of the proceeds to the conservation of seagrass. This blend of American and Canadian rye Whiskeys is finished in Martinique Rhum, Madeira, and apricot Brandy barrels. Quite a complex dram, right? It brings forward the grassy oceanside notes we all love in a good Rye and the abundance of flavors from the exotic finishing barrels. It already won Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2021 and Platinum at the L.A. Spirits Awards the same year.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Barrell Seagrass Rye Whiskey and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
