Brindiamo Group President and CFO Jeff Steinberg announced a major development in the company’s strategy for logistics and facilities with the addition of a new, proprietary rickhouse that will provide traditional company-owned storage for barrels. The rick house is located on the grounds of Log Still Distillery, which is situated on the 300-acre campus of Dant Crossing, a unique entertainment complex located in Gethsemane, KY.

“We are extremely excited to announce the completion of the first Brindiamo rickhouse to better serve our clients with their barrel storage requirements,” Steinberg said in a news release. “With a capacity of approximately 30,000 barrels, the rickhouse is a joint effort between Brindiamo and Log Still Distillery. It represents a milestone for our company that will dramatically expand our capabilities to directly service our clients’ needs.”

The genesis of this initial rick house came during conversations between Brindiamo’s Chairman and CEO, Jeff Hopmayer, and Wally Dant, President of Log Still Distillery and founder of Dant Crossing.

“Wally and I saw a unique opportunity to build a strong partnership between Brindiamo and Log Still,” Hopmayer said. “This modern rick house provides dedicated storage for our clients. Barrels will be managed and operated by experienced teams on the grounds of Log Still Distillery.”

Dant added, “Working with Brindiamo on solutions for us and our collective clients makes complete sense and we are happy to have them as a strategic partner.”

“The procurement of our own rickhouse is a real game-changer for Brindiamo and our clients,” Chris Ecken, Brindiamo’s Vice President of Strategy & Analytics, said. “It will house barrels that Brindiamo owns, as well as Log Still barrels and some third-party barrels. This signifies a major expansion of our core strategy of barrel sourcing and it is the first of many rick houses that are in our plans for the future.”

Established in 2012, the Brindiamo Group is a preeminent consulting firm for the beverage alcohol industry and one of the largest bulk bourbon and whiskey suppliers in the world. Log Still is re-built on old family distillery land and reimagined to create a unique bourbon destination.
