What you'll learn.

The barreling and maturation process is arguably the most impactful part of a spirit’s flavor development; but when you’re making a new product, years can be a long time to wait to see what kind of profile you're going to be left with.

In this free webinar led by Independent Stave Company’s Director of Spirit Research & Innovation, Andrew Wiehebrink, attendees will get the chance to take the guesswork and worry out of the equation.

  • Gain critical insights into what happens to your spirit inside of a barrel,
  • Explore what flavors can develop from each char level,
  • Understand how the length of time you plan to age spirits should impact char level selection,
  • Determine which char level is right for your mash bill and the desired flavor profile.
