We are humbled, honored and proud to have been selected as the exhibiting cooperage on tour with The Macallan during the release of their latest whiskey expression, Double Cask 12 Year. The tour began with the October 5th North American release at Cedar Lakes Estate in Port Jervis, NY. An outdoor cooperage was set up and manned to answer questions and interactively help guests through various processes of actually constructing a barrel.
Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills was next in line with approximately 275 people once again going through a smaller, scaled back indoor cooperage to understand not only the process but the influence the oak has on spirits.
October 27th found us on The Golden Mile in Chicago's loop at the Chicago Cultural Center, again in an elaborate indoor venue. The tour continues through November 11th, 2016 with stops in Miami and New York City. For more information, go to The Macallan website at www.themacallan.com.
