Make your own American Rye Whiskey with a Swish Barrel Bootleg Kit™.

American style rye whiskey has a higher rye content resulting in a spicier taste. The flavor expands and great oak notes are imparted when aged in the small or mini oak barrel. Made in the USA.

Alcohol NOT included...

How does it work?

To start, cure your barrel per instructions. Pour grain alcohol or neutral (unflavored) vodka into the barrel along with the Swish Barrel Essence (included). Give it a good shake to incorporate the ingredients then let it rest or mature. In just two weeks time, begin tasting your one-of-a-kind blend and when aged to perfection, simply serve straight from the tap or move to one of our personalized bottles to stop the aging process.

Kits available in 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, and 20 liter sizes.
