Our music barrel experiment has taken off!

September 19, 2017

You may, or may not, have heard but here at Spirit Works we’ve had a pretty cool experiment going for a while now. We invite you into the tasting room to try your tasted buds on it! Back in the day we decided to start playing music (via large headphones and repeating Ipod’s) to our whiskey barrels. Our theory was that if whiskey needs interaction with the wood to mature…maybe we could amplify (get it;) that process with music vibrations. Our barrels have been patiently waiting for over three years now listening to everything from Bluegrass to the Heavy Metal. Each of our staff picked a different genre/style/musician for an individual barrel and that’s all the barrel has heard since. Until last month when we released our first two experiments – the Bluegrass barrel and the Nutcracker barrel. Come into the tasting room and we can do a blind tasting for you of the music barrels along side control barrels. Come in for yourself and let us know what you think! We were also lucky to get some amazing press surrounding this experiment all of which you can check out below. So come visit us in the tasting room (open Wed – Sun 11 – 5) and will look forward to seeing you soon!
