Stellum rolls into the market as a consistently-batched product that will incorporate distillate from Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee. These ingredients will be no surprise to fans of Barrell Bourbon, but the $54.99 SRP might be a new form of sticker shock.
As mentioned above, Stellum is a new brand extension from the folks at Barrell Craft Spirits, and their blending has been proven with expressions that have really impressed (see review for Seagrass). Knowing what the palates and minds at Barrell are coming up with, I was eager to check out this brand as they launch both a bourbon and a rye.
Below you’ll find our episode of Weekly Whiskey where we taste Stellum live with Barrell Craft Spirits’ Chief Product Innovation Officer, Will Schragis.
Below is a brief quote, but you can read more about Stellum from the Press Release:
“We wanted to create a brand that brings American Whiskey into the modern age with simple elegant blends and single barrels selected with care and intention”
Joe Beatrice, Barrell Craft Spirits
I’m excited to check out the first release from Stellum, which is their bourbon (rye soon to follow), and see what the debut of this new brand holds.
