Happy April 1.... Today we wanted to give you an inside look at growing our spirits on our farm..One of the things that makes Barnstormer Distillery unique is that we are a working specialty crop farm. We made a quick video to document the process of growing Whiskey on the farm..April Fools, that’s not really how we make our Whiskey (everybody knows that an oak barrel is involved). .Thanks again to all our present and future supporters on Kickstarter. Spread the word, every $1 helps..https://www.kickstarter.com/.../barnstormer-distillery/.#aprilfools #crowdfunding #tourism #rockfordproud #project #supoortlocal #distillery #thankyou #grateful #events #tour #tasting #reward #spirits #alcohol #40winkswhiskey #rfdvodka #dutch45rum #bourbon #rum #vodka #cocktails #cocktail #mixology #create #bartender #foodie #custommade #checkitout #chicago #foodie .@barnstormerdistillery @kickstarter @kicktraq @lamonicabeverages @burkebev @gmdistributorsinc @815foodie @nwquarterlymag @312foodhttps://www.facebook.com/barnstormerdistillery/videos/362622711652555/
