TAMPA BARREL SELECTORS: 6-YEAR OLD WILD BUCK WHISKEY
Hello NJoy Spirits Distillery Friends and Fans,
An added special treat today. Kevin is emptying and bottling an entire barrel of 6-year-old Wild Buck Whiskey. What makes it special is that this is a 6-year-old barrel versus the normal 3-1/2 year barrel we use for our Wild Buck Whiskey. We do hold a few barrels for a longer period of aging from time to time.
This 6-year old barrel full of Wild Buck Whiskey has aged beautifully according to Kevin. It has been purchased by the Tampa Barrel Selectors club in Tampa Florida. From this barrel, we will get ~100 bottles of special 6-year old Wild Buck Whiskey. Each bottle will be numbered for the club.
Their contact information and a bit about them is below.
TAMPA BARREL SELECTOR CLUB
902 N FLORIDA AVE
“We (Tampa Barrel Selectors) are a new club designed for people who appreciate whiskeys. Our concept is very unique, in that we will have our own private stock of whiskey.”
“We (Tampa Barrel Selectors) are a whiskey club that not only specializes in whisky tasting and knowledge but also in the selection and procuring of private selection single barrel whiskeys.”
NJoy Spirits Distillery was founded in 2012 by Natalie and Kevin Goff. They bought 80 acres inside the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area on which they formed Goff Ranch, home of NJoy Spirits Distillery.
NJoy Spirit’s Distillery is a family-operated Florida whiskey distiller in the heart of the nature coast. When we started making our Wild Buck American Rye Whiskey (we didn’t want to make any rye), we wanted to make America’s finest 100% Rye Whiskey! We are confident we have achieved that and have no doubt you’ll agree with just one sip!
Wild Buck Whiskey is smooth, bold, handmade, and bottled at 100 proof. We start by fermenting a mash of 100% farm-fresh rye grain. We grind and cook it daily, one batch at a time. We add no artificial flavorings or color and use only purified ultraviolet filtered rainwater. At NJoy Spirits, our whiskey is never rushed. Our whiskey is aged in custom-made new charred American Oak barrels and developed in the Florida climate. The American Oak barrels give our final product a deep rich flavor with a hint of spice that only develops with time using a smaller barrel – the way whiskey used to be aged.
Kevin Goff and Natalie Goff started the Wild Buck Whiskey-making in 2010, and it became available to RNDC in April 2012.
We decided to start Mermaid Rum in 2016 since we had the property to grow sugarcane. Cane is like grass/bamboo, which grows in most soils.
We started the Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine in 2017. As you know, moonshine is the same thing as whiskey – just unaged and higher proof, and people asked for it, so that is why we decided to bottle that product.
We wanted to make products that used crops we could grow here on our farm. The type of corn we tried to make Bourbon with wasn’t possible to grow here, so we chose the 401 black rye, which grows quickly here instead. Our soil is very sandy and not rich. We have had to supplement the soil with many tons of compost for years.
We are very proud that our Wild Buck Rye Whiskey, Mermaid Rum, and Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine have become a reality through many years of trial and error! We realize patrons are the key to our success. If the liquor store you frequently visit does not carry them, kindly ask them to call our distributor (See Shop > Where to Buy).
“Tour & Tastings” of all three of our Florida-grown and made “Wild Buck Whiskey,” “Mermaid Rum,” and “Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine” is $8/Adult, but the fee is 100% credited towards our whiskey, our rum, or our moonshine bottle purchase.
Walk around and see where we grow our 100% Rye for our 100-Proof Whiskey, 150-Proof “Shine,” and the Sugar Cane for our 100-Proof Rum.
Children are welcome but by law are not allowed in the Tour, Tasting, or Bar areas.
