Since its beginning, bourbon's been aged in charred white oak barrels - any other wood, and the end product wouldn't taste quite right. Which is why, back in the old days, the white oak was called the "whiskey tree" by farmers, who spent slow winter months cutting them down.
It’s hard to fathom all of the dedication, hard work and craftsmanship that’s gone into every detail of this project. We couldn’t be more grateful for the effort of those helping to bring this dream to fruition
Kelvin Cooperage was founded in 1963 serving distilleries in Scotland and Ireland from the banks of the Kelvin river in Glasgow. In ‘91, the Cooperage relocated to the heart of Bourbon country in Louisville, KY. Today, the operation is run by the founder’s two sons, Kevin and Paul.
This rich history and half a century of experience are the reasons we’re working with Kelvin Cooperage as our barrel maker.
While we’re serving up craft spirits and cocktails, you’ll be able to grab a bite from local food trucks. We’re stoked to see these utility ports installed and we look forward to hosting the area’s best mobile grub.
What’s your favorite food truck?
