Check out fifteen fun facts you may not know about the amazing barrel-aged cocktails from the bar at Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort:

  1. Barrel-aging cocktails allows each mixture to absorb flavor notes from the wood, smoothes out rough edges, and promotes a more complete component blend.
  2. Each Hacienda Del Sol barrel is brand new, pure American oak, that has been charred, tempered and seasoned by Hacienda Del Sol Mixologists.
  3. Our barrels hold five liters or 170 ounces of liquid (enough for about 65 cocktails at 2.5 ounces each.)
