Whiskey Thief

It’s true that many of us may fit the bill of a “whiskey thief”, but in the distilling world it’s actually the name of a very useful tool. A whiskey thief is a long cylinder used to extract small portions of spirits from aging barrels for sampling and quality control. Many of our first batches have been aging since Fall of 2014, so we decided to check steal a sample to ensure the liquid was on it’s way to becoming a delicious spirit.
