Breaking Bourbon Award Winning Single Barrel Club picks are selected by Breaking Bourbon, and whenever possible with the help of Patreon supporters. The bottles are made available to Patreon supporters first by pledge tier. If any bottles remain after all supporters have had an opportunity to purchase, they are made available to the public on a first come, first served basis. Each barrel is sponsored by a retailer partner, who sells the bottles directly to end purchasers.

Earlier this year we made an epic visit to Old Elk Distillery with the Bourbon Community Roundtable - Jordan and Nick, Kenny and Ryan from Bourbon Pursuit, and Blake from Seelbach’s, which we documented here.
This was a unique experience with essentially unlimited access to Old Elk's barrel supply and master distiller Greg Metze tasting and answering questions as we went. The process took the better part of one day, and then the morning of the next. While they were distilled at MGP, they were distilled by Greg Metze at MGP, for Old Elk...a somewhat unique MGP selection by that measure.
