West Virginia Based
We are proudly located in the Greenbrier Valley in wild and wonderful West Virginia. Our plentiful resources and Appalachian know-how allow us to create a top-grade barrel for the international spirit and wine industry. WVGBC will provide upwards of 50 new skilled jobs and generate revenues from outside the State for products and labor generated within the State
Old Craft, New Technology
At the Great Barrel Company, we are creating a new standard of barrel for the distilling industries—combining modern technologies to the craft of cooperage. We produce a new standard for barrel performance, improving the efficiency and quality of distinct distilling operations.
Our Monroe County mill and Greenbrier County cooperage take NO short cuts. We use the best materials, the best equipment, and the best process to create a world-class barrel. We make a "Great Barrel" everytime!
Using and Preserving Resources
Great Barrel Company uses the unique resources of West Virginia and the Appalachian Mountains, while at the same time providing good shepherding of those resources to make sure they exist for generations to come. These mountains are our "home," and we treat them with respect and gratitude.
