American Craft Spirits: Some of the best oak in the world which is used to age Scotch comes right from Missouri – will you being taking advantage of this fact in the future?
Jim: We are so fortunate to be producing whiskey in the heart of the Ozark Mountains. Our white oak trees are world famous for making excellent barrels. We use these barrels to age our corn whiskey and the results are exciting. We are bottling a one year old whiskey now and look forward to offering older spirits in the future.”
