Bourbonr Pro Memberships

Welcome to open enrollment for the Bourbonr Pro membership. Almost three years ago, I launched Bourbonr Pro as a way to provide additional benefits and support the Bourbonr site. The main focus of the Bourbonr Pro memberships is the Bourbonr barrel picks. Don't worry. If you choose not to become a "pro" member nothing changes for you. All of the advantages of the Bourbonr Pro membership are in addition to what is already provided on Bourbonr.

As a part of the Bourbonr Pro memberships, 10% of the membership cost is donated to The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation. Cholangiocarcinoma is a rare form of cancer that affected my family in 2015. The Cholangio Carcinoma Foundation works to fund research as well as support families affected by cholangio carcinoma.

2018 Private Barrels:

Richland Rum Private barrel. Richland is the only single estate rum in the US. The grow their own sugarcane. Process the cane syrup. Distill and age their rum all in-house. We have a 5-year old cask strength rum that is truly incredible.

- A 1985 vintage L'Encantada Armagnac selection from Domaine del Cassou. I know the first two aren't bourbon but they're both special picks that you won't want to miss out on.

- Buffalo Trace private pick. This barrel was selected with the help of the Bourbon Roundtable. It was my first choice and selected specifically for Bourbonr Pro members. It's an 8.5 year Buffalo Trace from warehouse K

- Barrell Bourbon pick - Details TBD

- Finger Lake Distilling McKenzie Bourbon - Details TBD

- Wyoming Whiskey 6.5-year-old cask strength bourbon. It's like a Maker's Mark Cask Strength made in the frigid winters of Wyoming.

- Manifest Distilling 2-year and 4-month Cask Strength Rye Whiskey. This has a 60/40 rye/wheat mash bill. It's a great rye whiskey for the age. This is the only single barrel and cask strength rye whiskey released by the distillery. 

This next year of Bourbonr Pro will be filled with excellent barrel picks. Some of the picks may come from places you've never heard of. That's the point! While we'll continue to select from the usual suspects (Buffalo Trace and others) I plan to branch out to other distilleries. Distilleries that are making a great product but may not have the same mainstream attention. There are some great artisan distilleries producing incredible products. My goal is to find those hidden gem barrels and bring them to Bourbonr Pro members.

On top of the Bourbonr barrel picks, members are also eligible for the following:
