Welcome to the very first episode of The Prime Barrel Academy - "The Autopsy of the Barrel."
We've got the awesome Randall Bird leading the way in this one. He's not just an old hand in the whiskey biz; he's a pro with brands like Copper & Cask, Wheel Horse, and Northcross under his belt. In this episode, we'll dive deep into the heart of every whiskey - the barrel. We're talking about how they're crafted, the kinds of oak that go into making them, and what's up with all that fire when they char the barrels. And the best part? You'll get the scoop on how these barrels turn the clear spirit into the amber nectar we all love. Randall will break it all down, from the tree to the workshop, all the way to the distillery.
