Far Cry 5 Whiskey Barrels
Before you start collecting these Whiskey Barrels, you must start the side quest. For this purpose, head to Silver Lake in Henbane River and find the Can of Worms Fishing Store. Head inside the store and find Sherri. Talk with him and he will give you the side quest. Accept the quest and you can now collect the Whiskey Barrels.
Once you have accepted the quest, you can also purchase the locations of these Whiskey Barrels from different shops.
This will give you a general idea of where the Whiskey Barrel is located. We also recommend that you have a boat or Adelaide as a Gun for Hire as she can fly you around for this around.
Some of the Whiskey Barrels are located in places, which can only be reached, by the helicopter or the boat. Also, unlock the Human Fish Perk because you will be spending a lot of time underwater.

Whiskey Barrel #14
Your second last Whiskey Barrel is located back near the starting point of the side quest. Head to the south of the Tanami Residence in Henbane River and arrive between the two islands here. This marker is before the bridge, so do not go too much in the south direction.
