Wigle Whiskey co-owner Meredith Grelli gifted many a signature cocktail for close friends tying the knot. It dawned on her that the family business’s customer base would be interested, too! Enter Wigle Whiskey Bridal Barrels. “We discovered that there is this sort of trend to serve beer, wine, and a signature cocktail — not necessarily providing a full bar,” says Grelli. “A lot of our customers are getting married and asking how to incorporate local spirits. Weddings have become so personalized and so creative, and the bar is a natural extension of that.” The program is structured à la cake tasting. The couple tastes a flight of straight spirits as Grelli and her team work with the bride and groom to decipher a match of personalities and flavors. “We ask about the engagement, where they met, and we come up with options,” she says. Wigle Whiskey offers mixes, pre-batching, and delivery, and can also recommend preferred beer and wine vendors. There’s nothing more spirited than a custom celebration!
