KENTUCKY DISTILLERY-DIRECT BARREL PROGRAM

For the past decade, K&L has been working directly with almost all of Kentucky's top whiskey producers to select single barrels exclusively for our stores. Whether it's Heaven Hill, Four Roses, Buffalo Trace, Wild Turkey, Brown-Foreman, or Jim Beam, we've worked with every one of them—visiting with the distillery managers at each location and tasting whiskey directly from the cask.

With the increased demand for top-quality Bourbon over the past few years and the scarcity of supply, our direct relationships are more important than ever. Getting access to single barrels is become a game of who you know, rather than what you can afford. Needless to say, our trips to Kentucky are becoming more and more frequent as we continue to send our buyers directly to the source in search of new and interesting selections.
