Bushel & Barrel is the result of blending two delicious traditional flavors – bourbon, America’s native spirit, and Berentzen’s world-renowned apple liqueur.

Berentzen Bushel & Barrel takes Kentucky straight Bourbon whiskey distilled and aged to specification, and blends it with Berentzen Apple Liqueur.  Berentzen Apple Liqueur is made from only the highest quality ingredients such as premium harvested apple bushels and the finest grain that has been the Berentzen spirit standard for centuries.

The new expression features the flavor of crisp, ripe apples along with spicy bourbon notes.  The sweet apple and bold bourbon not only complement each other; they balance one another out to create a uniquely smooth spirit that is as versatile as it is distinct.
