Rolling Out Our 100th Barrel At Rolling Thunder

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.

It took us 11 months to reach barrel #100. One of the big barrel factories out East can churn out that many barrels in just a few hours. But we didn’t start Rolling Thunder Barrel Works to be fast and efficient. We dedicated ourselves to reviving the slow traditions of artisan coopering, to craft our barrels by hand, using Oregon White Oak sourced from the Oregon Coast…

That’s the spirit

Midleton Rared

The Spirit Of Speyside whisky festival is awesome. I spent a week there last year and had the time of my life, and it seems many others did too, as this year’s ticket sales are booming. Here’s the deets:

Ticket sales for the 2016 Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival have set new records, with over 2,700 tickets valued at almost £75,000 being bought within the first hour of their launch this week.

Just 10 minutes after the website went live on Tuesday (February 2) transactions reached the same level that took an hour to achieve in 2015, while the same amount of sales in an hour took 24 hours on last year’s opening day.

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…

Douglas Laing distribute Glenturret

OCDWHISKY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 2nd February 2016

Douglas Laing to distribute Glenturret’s core range of single malts across Europe
Glenturret Distillery is delighted to announce that Douglas Laing is its European distributor for Glenturret Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

The Edrington-owned brand announced the launch of a new core range in November 2015: The Glenturret Sherry Edition, The Glenturret Triple Wood Edition and The Glenturret Peated Edition. It is this new portfolio that whisky blender and purveyor Douglas Laing will distribute across Europe.

Until last November’s launch, only a very small proportion of the single malt produced at Scotland’s oldest distillery was bottled as such, with the majority destined for blending in The Famous Grouse, Scotland’s best-selling whisky.

Last year saw Glenturret Distillery celebrate its 240th year with the relaunch of these core malts, as well as the launch of two limited edition malts. The Crieff distillery is famous for its traditional…
