The Sprouting Project Barrel Room

Enhancing flavors over time

Aged to perfection

One aspect of The Sprouting Project is the unique and diverse barrel room. The barrel room structure is constructed with solid poured cinder block and topped with a reclaimed pallet board roof. Outside the structure, natural earth covers the cinder block and pallet board roof, mimicking the “basement cool” similar to northern areas. Contents of our thirty-six barrels change often, but we always have a variety of fermented hot sauces (made with chili peppers from our hot pepper patch) and infused balsamic vinegars (comprised of wine and the season’s best vegetation – i.e. Georgia peaches) on hand. The middle section is comprised of our barrel aged cocktail program. Chef Daven has an affinity for gin, so he has made a special “Chef’s Negroni Cocktail”. Other barrels consist of an “Apple-Maple-Rum Old Fashion”, dandelion wine and Omni Amelia Island’s most popular cocktail, “Palmetto Honey Bourbon”. Everything produced from the barrels is used at all restaurants throughout the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort.

The barrel room is showcased during our monthly Sprouting Project dinners and can be booked for private events as well.
