Smoke & Barrel

Established in 2018, “Smoke & Barrel” event takes place on the lawn of the Calcasieu Parish Courthouse beneath a canopy of majestic live oaks and has quickly established itself as the premiere spirits tasting event in Southwest Louisiana. Smell the savory aroma of oak and hickory. Taste BBQ from leading pitmasters that’s been expertly paired with bourbon, scotch, and whiskey. Hear the foot-stomping sounds of top regional bands. See works from local artisans and craftsmen. Feel the unique culture and hospitality of Southwest Louisiana.

Follow the smoke! Smoke & Barrel will entice the tastebuds of locals and travelers alike. We invite you to join us as we transform historic downtown Lake Charles into a celebration of the senses.

Smoke & Barrel Jefferson’s Single Barrel Whiskey

Smoke & Barrel is so excited to present you with an amazing Single Barrel of Jefferson’s Ocean Voyage 27. This delightful bourbon traveled all over the world and stopped at ports all across the globe. From Jefferson’s Bourbon, “The constant motion of the sea churns the whiskey, increasing its interaction with the wood of the barrel. Extreme weather ranging from the coldest of coldest to the warmest of temperatures hyper-ages the liquid in ways no rickhouse could. Jefferson’s Ocean Aged at Sea® Bourbon is Aged At The Mercy of The Sea. Experience a voyage yourself.”

You can see the voyage that our special single barrel took from Savannah, Georgia, around Australia, up the east Asian coast and back here.
