Small Caliber Series
Ranger Creek Small Caliber Series
Small Barrels, Small Bottles, Big Flavor
Ranger Creek’s Small Caliber Series is an award-winning line of creative, limited edition whiskeys aged in small barrels. We put these whiskeys in small bottles to represent the small barrels in which they have been matured. The small barrels accelerate the maturation process by increasing the wood to liquid ratio in the barrel. This imparts unique, interesting flavors and allows us to experiment with new products. In the spirit of being truly craft, we will use local ingredients and innovative ideas to release a new Small Caliber Series product each year. Each bottle will be hand labeled with the batch number, bottle number, season, and maturation time.
