Renowned craftsman Paul Vogel will bind the book in your choice of red or black Scandinavian calfskin and personalize it in hand-tooled 24-karat gold. The result? A personal fashion history, housed in a custom-made tonal case, sure to be cherished for generations.
Orphan Barrel® Project was started to share long-forgotten barrels of rare whiskey discovered in old rickhouses and distilleries. Each release is handbottled—and once they’re gone, they’re gone forever.

You’ll then receive 24 bottles each of the remaining stocks of eight different Orphan Barrel bourbons—including the variants created by you—along with a bespoke whiskey cabinet crafted in Kentucky to house the collection, barware, and a leather-bound book about your whiskey.
