Whether it’s Tennessee or Kentucky, Rye or Wheat, bourbon has been the American Whiskey since the 18th century. In order to earn its title, Bourbon, the spirit must be aged in new charred oak barrels, while Scotch and Irish Whiskey barrels are often used multiple times. After producing a fine bourbon, the barrels are often used by breweries for special “Cask Aged” ales, but again, are traditionally only used once.

Black & Tannin – 25sf/case
Long and dark charred pieces, the interior staves of the barrel. These boards can be left completely black, or lightened up via sanding. The reverse side is clean, smooth bare wood. This allows for the option of a contrasting light and dark appearance. A Bung board is included with every 25sf.
Vintage Reserve – 25sf/case
If flooring were labeled like a whiskey bottle, this would read “RARE”. This finely aged flooring comes from much older barrels and carries with it a much darker patina. Like any rare whiskey, it takes a long time to make and is always in short supply.
Cooperage Select – 25sf/case
The exterior staves of the barrel, its rustic patina is like its own history book and iron stains are left from the metal bands used to hold the barrels together. Though not guaranteed, these boards do occasionally have distillery stamps and markings on them. A Bung board is included with every 25sf.
Distillery Reserve – 12sf/case
Crafted from the heads of the barrels, the coveted Distillery Reserve is what you would consider a “Small Batch” flooring. These boards are shorter in length (8”-20”) and contain a mix of charred, patinaed, and distillery marked boards. Occasionally even hand writing from the distillers themselves. In some cases you can even tell what whiskey your flooring aged, when, and where! *Distillery markings guaranteed on at least 20% of Distillery Reserve boards*
Blended – 30sf/case
40/40/20 mix of Black & Tannin (40%), Cooperage Select (40%), & Distillery Reserve (20%)
