Foundation Bourbon: A Sip Above

Nestled in the heart of Louisville, Barrell Craft Spirits emerged as the indie rock star of the whiskey world back in 2013, blending cask strength hits that quickly topped the charts. This band of spirited artisans, known for their award-winning, genre-defying tracks, set out with a mission to remix traditional whiskey into something unexpectedly extraordinary. With each small-batch and single-barrel release, they've not only captured the hearts of aficionados but also snagged some shiny hardware along the way. Their philosophy? Bold moves lead to bold flavors. And trust us, they're not playing quietly.

Barrell Foundation Bourbon is that track you can't get out of your head—a harmonious blend of bourbons from the four corners of the bourbon belt, aged between five to nine years, with a rye content that dances through each sip like a well-orchestrated symphony. Think of it as the Bowie of bourbons—versatile, complex, and always ready for an encore. At 100 proof, it's smooth enough for those mellow nights but carries a depth that'll make your Old Fashioneds legendary. Picture golden amber hues, opening notes of honey and dark cherry, a chorus of maple pecans and tiramisu, all ending on a creamy high note of cinnamon and toffee. It's no wonder this blend took home the gold—twice. Welcome to the foundation of your bourbon collection.

Because Every Collection Needs Its Cornerstone.

  • lavender lavender
  • cocoa cocoa

Appearance / Color

Golden amber.

Nose / Aroma / Smell

The nose is welcomed by honey, candied-strawberry, dark cherry, and grilled cantaloupe. Following this are lavender and fennel, balanced with cocoa, brown butter, and cardamom. Grilled peaches and hazelnut make an appearance, ending with lemon and lime zest, and a hint of oily, waxy fruit peel.

Flavor / Taste / Palate

Flavors open with maple pecans, dark chocolate, and cinnamon, leading into tiramisu and cardamom cake. The palate is complemented with fennel, lemongrass, and lemon zest, ensuring a creamy, full-bodied experience.

Finish

The finish is creamy and sweet, focusing on cinnamon, toffee, and vanilla pudding. With a splash of spring water, it becomes even more viscous and creamy, evolving into bananas foster, with elevated notes of citrus zest, lemongrass, and orange sherbet.
