Whiskey Webcam FAQs

Below are answers to all the questions you could ever have about putting a webcam in a whiskey barrel.

  • Whiskey Webcam Welcome Package
    We will immediately ship you (or the gift recipient) an awesome welcome package that will include your Whiskey Webcam membership card, a Whiskey Webcam t-shirt and the first sample from your barrel. ​
  • A Bottle of Barrel Proof Bourbon
    Don't forget, at the end it is only a few dollars to receive your very own 750 ml bottle of barrel proof bourbon. After spending 4 to 6 years watching and waiting, this bourbon will no doubt be the most anticipated bottle of bourbon you will ever drink.
  • 24/7 Access to your Barrel Live Stream!
    For up to 6 years you can login from any computer or smartphone and watch your whiskey age. (The camera looking inside the barrel is sealed in glass, so there is no contact with the whiskey.) What a great party trick! We also play some jazz and ragtime music for your whiskey that you can hear in the background. (You may also hear us working in the warehouse at times.)
  • Whiskey Webcam Access Card
    We encourage you to always carry your Whiskey Webcam access card. Scan the QR code to go directly to your barrel and show your friends! Your true friends won't judge you.
  • Monthly Newsletter
    We will also be watching your barrel and will send you insights and highlights each month.
  • One Sample per Year for up to 6 years.
    This is the best part! Imagine the excitement when you receive your first bourbon sample! We will send you one barrel proof sample a year for up to 6 years. The samples are approximately one ounce. Each year your whiskey will get better, and darker as the whiskey ages.​ After the 4th annual sample, you are welcome to bottle your whiskey at any proof you desire.
  • Option to Purchase one 750 ml bottle
    Please be patient as we share some language to keep the lawyers happy. Your Whiskey Webcam purchase does not include a bottle of whiskey. State laws prevent us from including the sale of whiskey in the whiskey webcam experience.  You are under no obligation to buy a bottle, but if you elect to buy a bottle, the State of Ohio requires the bottle to be purchased separately. ​ So, what does that mean? It means we have to charge you separately for the actual whiskey bottle when you decide to purchase one.  But, we have kept the price reasonable at only $10 (plus any applicable taxes and shipping). We have no doubt it will be the best $10 bottle of bourbon you have ever purchased.  ​ You may elect to purchase your bottle anytime after the barrel reaches 4 years old.  Remember, you get to decide the bottling date and the bottling poof!  After 4 years, all monthly newsletters will provide a link to purchase your bottle, or you can also email us anytime at  ​ All Whiskey Webcam barrels will be bottled under the Hayner Distilling brand located in Troy, Ohio.  We have not completed the label design, but hey, we still have four years to come up with a label. We will share label designs and other news throughout our time together.
  • Bottle your own Bourbon
    When you are ready to bottle your bourbon, you are welcome to visit us in Troy, Ohio and assist in the bottling at no charge! It's a circle of life sorta thing. You watched it grow up, so why not bottle it yourself and complete the circle.
