A customer left a five-star review and said, "This is my third one. Been making aged Manhattans for a couple years now. I have some recipes off the internet and pour the concoction into the barrel where I keep it for 6 weeks, turning it a quarter turn every other day. At the end, I empty the barrel, strain the fluid through cheap coffee filters to get any particles and chocolate shavings out of it. I then pour it all into the 750ml bottle I used and place it directly in the freezer. GREAT!"
