About Patent 5’s Single Barrel Release 1 Whisky

Single Barrel Release 1 is the first wheat whisky from Patent 5. The last whisky produced in Winnipeg in 1880 was a wheat whisky by Winnipeg distillery Radiger & Erb. Single Barrel Release 1 was created to honour this history, with a significant wheat component in it. What makes this release special is that each individual bottle is from only one aged barrel, rather than many barrels, which is why it is labeled a “Single Barrel” release. Single barrel releases are distinct as they are not blended with other barrels to create specific flavor profiles, but rather, each barrel is unique.  The resulting spirit is usually a very small batch and because of its rarity, frequently becomes a collectible whisky.

Join Our Gin Club

Our objective for the Patent 5 Gin Club is to create a community of people who are as passionate as we are about craft spirits and the community they live in. This should generate ideas about new spirits and cocktails, create excitement for new releases, and develop friendships around common interests. The Patent 5 Gin Club will be a forum where members can share experiences and learn from each other, and enhance their appreciation for distilling methods, ingredients, and equipment.

Club members receive three member’s special boxes throughout the year, early access to limited small-batch release products, discounts, two tickets for a distillery tour, and invitations to member-only events.
