That's Some Whiskey Business!

One part business, one part hobby, and one part community brought Barrel Raised to the world.

Ben had been an engraver for years, working with clients across a number of industries, finding it difficult to say no to new projects. One regular source of projects came from clientele that had passions for craft beverages. Having no working knowledge of that field, it pushed him to wonder what the fuss was all about. After all, if you're going to work closely with a group of people, you should probably understand what they are all about.

Craft Beverage 101 started with a little dip in to beer and cocktails, but it was whiskey that gave a real shove down the rabbit hole. The venture that started out as a way to help clients ended up becoming a hobby, and that hobby morphed into an obsession. For the next year, Ben immersed himself in online forums, books, social media groups, local tastings, and the building of a formidable whiskey library. He learned that there was a booming subculture of craft spirit fanatics - a community of people from all walks of life that came together to share in the enjoyment of premium spirits and camaraderie.

That community had requests for engraved glassware - something he had been doing for years already, so "sure, easy, no problem". WRONG. They wanted Glencairn glasses, and Glencairn didn't work with just anyone - at the time, it took digging, and when the digging ended, it took experimenting to get the finished product to turn out perfectly. Once dialed in, being part of community as someone passionate about the craft and being able to bring something to the table, the doors opened up.

Time passed, and it solidified that this wasn't just some fleeting thing, it was the start of a lifetime of learning. Working with enthusiasts, distilleries, bar owners, ambassadors and social media 'influencers', Ben found that he loved every moment of helping wherever he could, all while absorbing the knowledge imparted from that world.

The mission now is to help others enjoy craft spirits as much as he does. Whether it be delivering products and personalization that helps to elevate the drinking experience, or just chatting about all things craft, Barrel Raised is here to help!

Cheers!

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

Most items in the shop are available at wholesale rates. If you would like to purchase items in bulk or have items engraved for your own private label, feel free to send us a message.

As we are engravers first and foremost, the customization/personalization options are extensive, so we have worked with a number of clients on a variety of projects. Situations have called for things as simple as a custom logo on an existing product we already carry, all the way up to the sourcing and creation of new products to meet specific needs.

Just let us know what you have in mind and we will help to the best of our abilities!

Custom and personalized orders

Most everything in our shop is available to be personalized. If you would like something custom to be engraved on your item, please reach out and we will see how to help!

With custom engraving, there are limitations that are unique to the process. Unlike printing, which uses inks or dyes to add a design on to an object, engraving involves the removal of material from an object to create the design. This means that color is typically not an option and certain artwork formats are required to create the engrave-able image (for example, very fine details and greyscale/shading isn't feasible).

Gift wrapping and packaging

We prioritize the safe arrival of your order, so the use of bubblewrap and foam gives the glassware the best possible likelihood of arriving in beautiful condition.

Because of the nature of shipping the glassware in dense packaging, gift wrapping is not feasible at this time.
