From Bark to Barrel to Bourbon

B-F Cooperage Est. 1945 Louisville - KY U.S.A.

COOPERS' CRAFT WAS CREATED TO HONOR THE BROWN-FORMAN BARREL MAKERS.

Since 1945, we have remained the only major distiller to own a new barrel cooperage and raise our own barrels, allowing us complete control of the bourbon-making process from start to finish. Our master coopers rely on a proprietary toasting and barrel-making process to deliver unique and award-winning bourbons ranging from light and gentle to bold and complex.

Coopering is a highly skilled tradecraft, passed down from one generation of master coopers to the next. Because the barrel contributes over 50% of our bourbon’s flavor and 100% of its color, making quality barrels—what coopers call “raising”—is essential to crafting quality bourbon.

50% of the flavor, 100% of the color

WE MAKE BOURBON, SO WE NEED PROOF.
