New Whiskey Expressions Join Mancini Beverage

By October 22, 2021Rhode Island, Top News

Mancini Beverage – Rhode Island Distributing division welcomed several new, unique bourbon and whiskey expressions. The first from Kentucky-based Barrell Bourbon, each showcasing the team’s art of blending: Barrell Bourbon Batch 029 Cask Strength, a blend of straight bourbon whiskeys distilled and aged in Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana in a selection of 6, 7, 9, 10, 14 and 16-year-old barrels, aged in American white oak barrels and bottled in Kentucky; Barrell Armida, an award-winning ripe, floral and spiced whiskey blend of three Straight Bourbon Whiskeys, finished separately in pear brandy, Jamaican rum and Sicilian Amaro casks; Dovetail, a blending of flavors of woody bourbon, terroir-driven Dunn Cabernet, toasted French oak, late-bottled vintage port pipes and black strap molasses casks — all working in tandem to create a buttery and deep whiskey and Seagrass, a blend of American and Canadian rye whiskeys, with each ingredient meticulously sourced and finished separately in Martinique Rhum Agricole casks, apricot brandy casks and Madeira barrels. Also from Barrell Craft Spirits, comes the Stellum Spirits line, devoted to bringing American whiskey into the modern age with simple, elegant blends. Stellum Bourbon and Stellum Rye, each an award-winning spirit, are its new market releases.

Barrell Bourbon Batch 029, Barrell Bourbon Armida, Barrell Bourbon Dovetail and Barrell Bourbon Seagrass. Barrell Craft Spirits, based in Louisville, Kentucky, is an independent blender and bottler of unique, aged, cask strength sourced whiskey and rum, recognized for its blending expertise.

Stellum Bourbon finds its flavor in the tension of three Indiana Bourbon mash bills: two high-rye and the third almost exclusively corn; older barrels from Kentucky and Tennessee are folded in slowly for depth and complexity. Stellum Rye, a true 95% Rye Indiana mash bill, is incorporated with small amounts of more barley-forward rye and choice barrels from both Kentucky and Tennessee.
