Video - Jack Daniel's - Birth of a Barrel
"Shot inside the storied walls of the Brown Forman Cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky, this short film follows the creation of a whiskey barrel from start to finish. Jack Daniel's is the only major distiller in the world that still makes their own barrels."
Found this great video Jack Daniels released on the creation of one of their barrels and thought it was worth a share.
It shows the process from lumber yard all the way through filing, pretty interesting stuff! Great to see that they make all the barrels themselves here in the US. Very cool set up, and look at all that wood! Would love to get our hands on some of those barrels, full or empty.
Seen some other cool processes like this? Send 'em over to us and we'll share!
