Frequently Asked Questions

What does small batch mean whiskey?

Small batch whiskey is like the VIP section of the whiskey world. It’s where distilleries take their select few barrels, each one pampered like a celebrity’s poodle, and blend them to create a limited-edition masterpiece. Think less factory, more artisan workshop. The term ‘small batch’ isn’t strictly defined (because who likes rules anyway?), but it generally means fewer barrels are used in the blend, ensuring each sip is like getting a personalized handshake from the master distiller.

Why is small batch better?

Small batch whiskey is better like a tailor-made suit is better than off-the-rack. It’s all about attention to detail. These whiskeys get the VIP treatment – more love, more care, and a lot more personality. Small batches allow for a nuanced flavor profile that big batch whiskeys can only dream of while they’re sitting in their giant warehouses.

How long is small batch whiskey aged?

The aging of small batch whiskey is like a mysterious love affair; it varies and is shrouded in secrecy. There’s no set time. Some might age for just a few years, playing the field, while others might settle down in their barrels for a decade or more, developing a deep, complex character. It’s less about the time and more about when the whiskey tells the distiller, “I’m ready.”

What is the difference between bourbon and whiskey?

Bourbon and whiskey are like cousins at a family reunion. All bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon. The difference? Bourbon has to be made in the U.S., have at least 51% corn in the mashbill, and age in new, charred oak barrels. Whiskey, meanwhile, is the free spirit of the family, with fewer rules and more room to experiment.

How much whiskey is in a small batch?

The amount of whiskey in a small batch is like asking how much love is in your grandma’s cooking; it’s hard to quantify. Technically, there’s no set amount. It could be a couple hundred bottles or a few thousand, depending on the distillery’s mood and capacity. It’s less about the numbers and more about the ‘small’ in small batch, meaning ‘not a whole lot.’

What are the advantages and disadvantages of small batch production?

Small batch production is a double-edged sword. On one hand, you get exceptional quality, unique flavors, and the bragging rights of sipping something exclusive. It’s like being part of an elite whiskey club. On the flip side, it can be harder to find, more expensive, and lack consistency between batches. It’s the whiskey equivalent of dating a high-maintenance superstar—sensational, but with a few challenges.
