Riverside’s Single Barrel Program
Our Single Barrel selections are unprecedented, and unlike any other. Each year we hand select barrels from the best whiskey stocks to privately bottle for your enjoyment. These are our current offerings.
1792 Full Proof
Bottled at the entry proof of 125, and forgoing traditional chill filtration methods help create this whiskey’s bold flavor and rich profile. With notes of dense oak, Madagascar vanilla, milk caramel, and baking spices, this whiskey is complex and wonderfully unique.
Whistle Pig Rye
Bottled in Barn in the woodlands of Vermont, the Rye lovers at Whistle Pig Farm have created truly wonderful Rye Whiskey. With the help of Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, this 150 year old dairy farm is now a fully operational distillery. Aged 10 years and bottled at cask strength 115.9 proof, this dram boasts notes of candied orange, dried ginger and a warming oaky finish.
This brand carries the name of reverend Elijah Craig, whom discovered the method of making Kentucky Bourbon when he stored his stock in barrels that had been charred in a barn fire. Our pick, an exclusive 8yr barrel from private stocks stored at Heaven Hill and bottled at 94 proof for a smooth and delicate pour. Nutty and semisweet notes of candied fruits cruise the palate leading to a soft, smooth finish.
Distilled in Hye, Texas, Garrison Brothers is the first and oldest whiskey distillery in the state. This whiskey is not for the faint of heart. It is big and smoky. Enjoy it in moderation, straight-up, or with just a touch of ice. Deep caramel notes and baker’s chocolate dominate the palate, followed by dry dark fruits and intense oak spice.
Nelson’s Greenbrier Tennessee Whiskey has been revitalized by Charlie and Andy Nelson and is distilled in Nashville, Tn. With carefully selected stocks from MGP, the two brothers have brought life back to the family business. We selected a very robust and expressive barrel from their wares and had it privately bottled, Barrel number 3729, aged just shy of 11 years, and bottled at 116.6 proof. It’s a one of a kind special selection only available here at Riverside.
Unlike any other distiller, Four Roses has 10 uniquely crafted recipes, two of which we hand select each year. Each recipe offers its own special characteristics. We are currently offering OBSF and OBSQ single barrels. Distinctively different, the OBSF is floral and fruity, while the OBSQ is bold and spicy.
The Dynamo of Dixie! Bottled by hand in Chattanooga, we proudly offer all the products made by our local friends in the Distillery. We are fortunate enough to pick some barrels from their stock to have bottled just for us! Each barrel tells a different tale, and each one just as enjoyable as the next.
Produced by Brown-Foreman, Old Forester is the longest running bourbon on the market today at approximately 145 years old as of 2016. The warehouses that hold these barrels are climate controlled and separated by concrete floors to allow precise temperatures to ensure quality. Our barrel is from the 6th floor of warehouse B and bottled at 90 proof. A pure delight!
Barreled on January 10th 2007 and bottled early 2017, our Knob Creek barrel hits the decade mark. Stored in Warehouse D, Floor 7, Rick 6, Tier 2. It’s unblended, unfiltered, in its truest form. This whiskey left the barrel at 133 proof. It is a whiskey not to be taken lightly, with serious depth and roasted nutty notes. Even at the high proof – it is an enjoyable smooth drink.
The original Single Barrel Bourbon created by Albert Bacon Blanton. Originally, privately selected barrels were bottled exclusively for royalty, dignitaries, and friends and family of Colonel Blanton. He believed barrels from the “center-cut” of Warehouse H, the only metal cladded warehouse at Buffalo Trace, were the best for his bourbon. Blanton’s was introduced to the market in 1984 by Elmer T. Lee, on year before his retirement to honor the Colonel. We are fortunate to offer our own privately selected barrel of Blanton’s as availability permits in 375ml or 750ml sizes.
