Mark Twain once said, too much of anything is bad... but too much good whiskey is barely enough.
Turns out the folks over at Manifest Distilling agree with old Mark because soon be you'll be able to bottle your own delicious whiskey straight from the barrel.
It's all part of their new bottle-your-own-whiskey-program which launches on Friday.
The program is simple but genius. Manifest selected a mature 30-gallon barrel of their rye whiskey and transferred it into a custom barrel, complete with a vintage tap so customers can come in and pour their own bottle.
President of Manifest Distilling, David Cohen, says that Manifest is excited about the new program and the craft spirit movement as a whole.
"Being a craft distillery we have the ability to do these really small batches and create unique experiences out of our tasting room," he says. "We haven't even released a barrel strength whiskey out of our distillery yet."
The whiskey available for the program is just that. Barrel strength, delicious and unique.
"It looks like our normal packaging but it's a single barrel label, clocking in at a little over 120 proof...," Cohen says.
Located at 960 E Forsyth St., Manifest is Jacksonville's only full-scale organic distillery located in the heart of the Sports District.
