Rolling Out Our 100th Barrel At Rolling Thunder

More from the Guys at Rogue!

It’s a proud day for us at Rolling Thunder Barrel Works. Head Cooper Nate Lindquist just finished Barrel #100, and our distiller Jake filled it with Dead Guy Whiskey to begin aging the spirit.

Nate and Barrel 100 Cooper Nate Lindquist and Rolling Thunder Barrel #100.

Reaching #100 is milestone for us, but it’s also important because it represents lots of hard work. Nate assembles, raises, toasts, hoops, crozes, hoops again, cauterizes, sands and brands each barrel – one at time. Most of the tools he uses are so old they could be museum pieces.

Over 60 events in the packed programme taking place in whisky’s spiritual home from April 28 to May 2 have already sold out, and many more have limited availability.  The events attracts thousands of visitors to Speyside…
