Signature Barrel Program
About the Program
“…every barrel has a story and we are inviting you to write your story along your very own barrel!”
There are many reasons to own a barrel of whiskey, let alone make one! It’s an investment that appreciates over time, it’s a rare learning experience, it’s a great marketing opportunity, it’s a unique gift, and it’s a barrel of whiskey with a great story; whatever the reason Copper Run Distillery is here to ensure that you will have the best quality handcrafted Ozark Mountain Whiskey® in it.
With our barrel program you do more than just point to a barrel of whiskey; you’ll be directly involved in crafting your own whiskey recipe! Do you prefer a Single Malt, Wheat or Corn or Rye or Specialty Grains? We will help you formulate a recipe and invite you to participate in the production of your barrel of Whiskey. The barrel will rest in our warehouse to age and we’ll send you samples every 6 months. When it’s ready to bottle, we’ll put together a private label for your very own Whiskey bottles.

What makes this a one-of-a-kind experience?
It’s not every day that you get the chance to be part of designing a whiskey recipe and hand crafting your own barrel of Whiskey. With Copper Run’s experience and help this can become a reality! Your barrel will be dated and stamped with your name. The end result, your bottles of whiskey, will be sourced directly from your barrel and will carry your signature label – so there’s no other whiskey like yours.
What do you mean by “Design a Whiskey recipe”?
There are many types of whiskies: Bourbon, Corn, Malt, Rye, Wheat, Blended, Light, Spirit whiskey, Specialty Grains etc. We will discuss possible options with you and help you develop a recipe that meets your taste criteria. This recipe will be your own exclusive recipe and we will not share it with anyone else!

Can anyone purchase a barrel of whiskey? Only if you are 21 years of age and older!
We only offer barrels to customers based in the U.S. but because alcohol laws are different for every state, delivery costs, taxes and delivery process may add more cost to the final price. Please bear in mind that whiskey cannot be re-sold without the proper license.
How long does the order/production process take?
All orders will be executed on a First Come First Serve basis. The amount of time required to produce a barrel of whiskey is between 1-2 weeks.
How long do I need to wait for my Whiskey to age?
We offer the option of ageing your whiskey anywhere between 1 – 3 years. Samples and evaluation report/recommendations will be sent to you every 6 months for as long as your whiskey is ageing.
Can I personalize the bottles of whiskey from my barrel?
Yes, but some restrictions apply. The Copper Run Distillery logo has to be present along with other details about the type of spirit, origin etc. The bottle type we offer is the Nordic and the label shape and graphics are pre-designed. If there is a need for a different presentation, a different label or bottle then additional expenses may apply.
