Belle Meade Bourbon Sherry Cask Finish
Winner of the Special Barrel Finish, the Sherry Cask-finish bourbon was a game changer for me, and it showed how exciting these barrel finish programs can be.
— Fred Minnick, Author and Judge, 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition on Belle MEade Bourbon Sherry Cask winning Double Gold and Best Special Barrel Finished Bourbon
Belle Meade Bourbon Sherry Cask Finish

Belle Meade Bourbon Sherry Cask Finish, our first release in the Special Cask Finish Series, represents the best of both old and new world whiskey making techniques as it's America's native spirit, Bourbon, that we have blended and finished like a fine Scotch.

We sample and select barrels of Bourbon from our Reserve stock and blend only the best in extremely small batches to create a Whiskey of exceptional character. We then finish this extraordinary blend in Oloroso Sherry casks imported from Spain until perfection is achieved.

The final results are, to say the least, remarkable. Rich, intricate, and balanced, this Bourbon is one for the ages. There has never been a Bourbon like it and there will likely never be another.


Winner: Double Gold Medal and Best Special Barrel Finish Bourbon, 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"The Double Gold designation is awarded to the very few entries that receive Gold medal ratings by all members of the judging panel. These are among the finest products in the world."
