Whiskey Mini Barrel
Age your own Belle Grove 1797 Whiskey at home with this charred oak mini barrel! While we prefer using Belle Grove 1797 Spirits made by Copper Fox Distillery in Sperryville, Virginia, but you can age any clear spirits. About three 750 ml bottles fill the barrel and yield about one bottle of aged whiskey in about five months. The barrel may be used again and again and wood chips may be added for different flavors.

Larkin Tea Company has made special loose leaf tea blends just for Belle Grove. Each tea comes in a 2 oz. foil pouch. Please specify which variety you would like in a "note to seller" when you check out.
