The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Company was started to share barrels of rare and delicious whiskey, nearly forgotten in the back of rickhouses, whose stories have become the stuff of legend. Every Orphan Barrel is hand bottled in Tullahoma, Tennessee, to ensure that these rare whiskeys are treated with the care they deserve – because some of them will only be available once. And once they're gone, they're gone forever.3 Recipes
