Since opening in 2018, barrel-aged spirits have been part of an ongoing project at Granddad Jack’s. Our barrels have housed micro-batch gins, whiskeys, and traditional cocktails like the Negroni, Manhattan, and a Martini. We’ve always tried to give new life to a barrel and recycle them for as long as possible to create unique flavours and bring forward the characteristics left behind in the barrel from each fill. This process adds more depth and complexity to a spirit and creates a truly one-off release.
In honour of Granddad Jack’s 103rd birthday and the 48 years he spent as the local barber, we rested our award-winning Barbershop Coffee Liqueur for just over a year in a medium-char, American Oak barrel that previously housed our Bailiff Single Malt Whiskey.
This barrel-aged coffee liqueur represents what happens when two of our favourite worlds collide, fusing the traditional components of single malt whiskey with the elements of coffee liqueur. The characteristics of the whiskey & the properties that oak traditionally contributes to barrel-aged spirits heavily influenced the spirit to create this one-of-a-kind release.
Every purchase includes an incredibly limited, and release exclusive collectors coin; the very first for our new barrel-aged spirits releases, to be cherished long after the bottle is empty.
We hope you enjoy this liqueur as much as we loved making it.
