Penrock Distillery Posted February 26, 2018 Share Posted February 26, 2018 Hello All I have a bit of a problem that I'm hoping you guys can give me some thoughts on. I moved back home to South West England from Nashville TN to set up my small (and I do mean SMALL) distillery. We are a month or so away from starting production if all goes well. Of course we will start with the usual "white" spirit to get cash flowing but once we are off and running we intend to make American style whiskey (Bourbon by another name), rums and apple brandy. As I want to reproduce a "Bourbon" as closely as possible here in the UK, I will need to find a good way to age my product. Small 15-30 gallon barrels would be the obvious way to go in the first few years, but the shipping to the UK on already expensive small new barrels will be somewhat cost prohibitive but I am guaranteed a good product. Alternatively I could try oak additions but would have to source used small (15-30 gal) barrels to add additions to, but I'm not sure of the outcome for the finished spirit. And then there is tank aging with oak additions......... Has anyone experimented with any of these options or do you have any ideas or suggestions? Any and all help very gratefully received.
