Replay: The Influence of Wood
In this panel, UPROXX Drinks Editor Zach Johnston, will lead a discussion on the influence of wood used in spirit production and aging. Expert panelists, Amanda Beckwith, Lead Blender and Education Manager at Virginia Distillery Company, and William Hornaday, VP of Kelvin Cooperage, join Zach to discuss how things like different tree species, the treatment of the wood before and after making the casks, and used barrels can impact the final spirit. Kelvin Cooperage is a full-service cooperage, coopering new barrels as well as selling a wide range of used barrels, offering numerous aging and finishing options. Hornaday will walk us through how Kelvin Cooperage prepares the casks based on distillery needs, while Beckwith will give insight into how Virginia Distillery Company innovates through their wood program and use of Sherry, Bourbon, & Cuvée Casks.
