Why Barn-to-Bottle Is Whiskey's Hottest New Trend

 

The farm-to-table movement in high-end restaurants may be old hat by now, but its corollary in craft spirits is just getting started. 

“Barn-to-bottle” whiskeys well worth sipping are springing up across the country, from New England to the High West. 

The crucial difference between these down-home ingredients and production, which tend to yield bottles with a bit more soul. Vermont’s WhistlePig is one of the very few outfits to do the entire process in one place, from harvesting the rye to distilling, aging and bottling the final product. 

They even make their own whiskey barrels from oak trees felled right on the farm. This lends the elixir and others of its ilk something akin to terroir, that taste of the earth—specifically, the patch it comes from— so highly prized by oenophiles.
