SINGLE BARREL SELECTIONS

All Kentucky’s Original Black Bourbon Enthusiasts (KOBBE), single barrels are hand selected by our sub-committee of members. The committee and education were led by John Wadell, single barrel manager of Peerless Distillery. In order to be a part of KOBBE’s exceptional single barrel selection sub-committee, each person on the committee must go through classes taught by Master Distillers, Master Blenders, and bourbon experts specifically geared to fine-tune their palate to the highest standards possible. These classes go well beyond your average distillery tour and tasting. We make sure they put in the hard work so that everyone in KOBBE can reap the rewards with every sip.
