Join us for our third annual Cask Thief event – a celebration of the best and most unique in American Single Malt Whiskey, as we reveal some of Stranahan's rarest barrels, hand selected by Master Distiller Rob Dietrich. Steal a taste directly from six distinctly aged casks - the rare, the misplaced and the forgotten, all pulled from the depths of our rack-house for the first time.
The evening will include: 6 cask strength whiskey tastings, a pig roast on used Stranahan's barrel staves by Blackbelly Catering, Stranahan's Brickle Ice Cream by local shop, Sweet Action, live music, games, and a live demonstration from our barrel coopers at Independent Stave Company
