Woodford Reserve rolls out 'barrel' to UK on-trade

Published:  07 February, 2019

Woodford Reserve has unveiled a new barrel that will allow the UK on-trade to serve up a speedy Old Fashioned cocktail.

It says the “innovative” two litre barrel has been designed to allow for "pre-batching of the traditionally complex cocktail” using a blend of the newly launched Woodford Reserve Old Fashioned Cocktail Syrup and Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select.

The barrel, which took six months to design and perfect, has a steel interior with a wooden exterior. The tap is connected to the barrel via a bayonet fitting ensuring zero waste and easy cleaning. Each barrel comes with dispenser and care Instructions.

The idea is that the barrel allows on trade accounts to offer a quality cocktail offering even if they lack the time and expertise required to do so.

“Woodford Reserve holds the Old Fashioned in the highest esteem and believes it is a classic that should be easily available across menus throughout the UK,” said Emily Richardson, head of super premium brands at Brown Forman.

“Through our barrel programme we want to make it simple for the UK trade to offer and serve the perfect Old Fashioned without the complex and time-consuming processes associated with it”.
