We are makers of quality oak bourbon barrels. We began as a family-owned business by C.B. and Imogene Robinson in a small southeastern Kentucky stave mill in 1958, and many Robinson family members still work here.

We secure renewable white oak logs from all over the southeast. We turn them into staves to produce 53-gallon barrels known throughout the industry for their quality. We char the insides of each barrel to provide the distinctive color and taste for some of the best-known bourbons in the world.

We are proud to continue to serve our community, state and world with our quality barrels.

Small private tours only.
