In May 2017, we had our first ever Barrel Beard & Tattoo event. It was a charitable event in honor of Mr. Tom Sweet who had passed away a few short weeks prior leaving behind a wife and children. I did not know Tom well, and I definitely didn’t know much about what I was doing with my business at the time. We had only launched 2 short months prior as a company, and hosting an event at The Atomic Cowboy in St. Louis‘s The Grove neighborhood was a tall task. We had friends in bands like DiBiase and Killverez donate their time and talents and somehow a few hundred people decided to come out and support our event and the cause in memory of Mr. Sweet.
I really had no idea how to run a business, and still not sure I do, but I knew this was a chance for me, as a man, to give back to this world that has taken, but also given me so much. It was an opportunity that I realized and couldn’t have been happier that we were able to help this family during their time of need.
The Barrel Brands April 2018 expression, released on April 18, 2018, is inspired by and in honor of Mr. Tom Sweet. Sweet is an earthy, smoky tobacco based expression unlike any we have offered to date, equally as great as all that have preceded it.
Our Sweet expression combines the Barrel Brands proprietary vitamin E base oil blend with four unique tobaccos including Balkan, Vanilla, Cherry & Cuban along with Black Tea Leaves, a splash of patchouli and a pinch of black pepper, all smoked with cherry wood to finish and barrel aged in a French oak 60-gallon Ruby port wine cask that previously finished Bourbon. The depth of the barrel alone from the French oak casks that aged Ruby port and then finished bourbon adds subtly distinct flavor nuances that enhance the oil without challenging it. This oaky expression is warm, comforting and nostalgic.
