Just as aging spirits in barrels create a richer, smoother, and more complex flavor, barrel aging a cocktail offers a powerful flavor upgrade.

Barrel-aged cocktails involve storing your favorite mixed drink in wood barrels in a dark, temperature-controlled space.

Thus, the cocktail grows richer in flavor while also taking on flavors from the specific components in each barrel. Below, you can explore a list of barrel-aged cocktails to try at home.

I have always had a deep interest in the restaurant and bar industry. My restaurant experience began in 1997 at the age of 14 as a bus boy. By the time I turned 17 I was serving tables, and by 19 I was bartending/bar managing 6-7 nights a week.

In 2012, after a decade and a half of learning all facets of the industry, I opened my first restaurant/bar. In 2015, a second location followed, the latter being featured on The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
