Stellum Spirits is a new national brand from the independent blender and bottler Barrell Craft Spirits.
Stellum Spirits launches with flagship offerings that include bourbon (blue label), rye (green label) and single barrels — all bottled at cask strength. The brand is designed to be clean, straightforward and polished, the company says: This is whiskey factored down to its most defining essentials, blended and packaged with an eye towards clean lines and definition.
“We wanted to create a brand that brings American Whiskey into the modern age with simple elegant blends, and single barrels selected with care and intention,” says Barrell Founder Joe Beatrice. “Our whiskeys are created through a rigorous process of study, observation and experimentation. We are driven by progress, polish and — above all — attention to detail. We will always think critically about how to make our whiskey better.”
At Barrell, Beatrice chooses and creates spirits alongside Chief Whiskey Scientist Tripp Stimson, Chief Product Innovation Officer Will Schragis and Assistant Blender Nic Christiansen.
Stellum Bourbon is bottled at 114.98 proof (57.49% ABV) while Stellum Rye is bottled at 116.24 proof (58.12% ABV). Both are available for a suggested retail price of $54.99 per 750-ml. bottle, at retailers in 45 U.S. markets, and online via the Stellum website.
This follows the recent release from the company of Barrell Bourbon Batch 028.
