About Stellum Single Barrel Bourbon Lyra T8 (Caskers Staff Pick)
Joe Beatrice was a longtime home brewer before founding Barrel Craft Spirits in 2013 in Kentucky to share his passion for unique, high-quality spirits with the world. Famous for blending and sourcing all their premium spirits, BCS rum, whiskey, rye, and bourbon have all garnered international critical acclaim. BCS supports the time-honored traditions of distilling, choosing exceptional spirits from all over the world, and blending them in high-quality casks to bring out every single ingredient. No coloring, flavoring, or water is added. With their unique approach to spirit-making, they succeeded in creating blends that are greater than the sum of their parts. Their cask-strength, small batch, and single barrel expressions have won the most prestigious awards. Their blended bourbon carved the path for the rise of the blended whiskey when it was awarded Double Gold at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition
The Stellum brand under the BCS umbrella is another proof of their wizardry. The range includes a barrel-proof bourbon, a barrel-proof rye, and a single barrel program. "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," said Founder Joe Beatrice.
Their finest whiskeys are chosen for their single barrel program. These are the Stellum bourbon and rye expressions that work particularly well on their own, instead of in a blend, and are bottled at cask strength. This barrel of Lyra T8 is a Caskers Staff Pick. After being distilled in Indiana from a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley, it spent 5 years in a new charred American oak cask. The cask-strength expression was then bottled at 118.32 proof in 2021.
