Barrel 51 was created because many of us are growing tired of drinking the saccharine sweet lolly-water bourbon and colas that are in the market. We have combined quality Kentucky bourbon with a less sweet dry cola that actually lets you enjoy the bourbon taste, rather than hiding it. Bottom line, Barrel 51 is for people who like the taste of bourbon. Bourbon made by distilling 51% American corn and rye with spring water straight out of the Kentucky Mountains. Teamed up with a dry cola to make it less sweet, more bourbon - a drink that's actually fit for us Kiwi's.
