Product description: 

These specially handcrafted barrels are made from French oak, not varnished not waxed - The real McCoy for spirit ageing. They are ideal barrel for spirit ageing Brandy, Whisky, Calvados, wine, chili sauces and much more.

Specifications:

  • French oak 
  • Medium-light toast 
  • It comes with steel hoops and a wooden stand.

What you might also like:

  • Taps are not included. The stainless steel tap should be ordered separately and we will fit it to the barrel.  

Please note: 

  • We regularly steam our barrels slightly to prevent them from drying out too much. However, once we ship them we have no control over the barrel and cannot guarantee that they will be leak free. As such, our barrels are not guaranteed to be leak-free. The right conditioning will assist you in maintaining a leakfree barrel for many many years. Once filled, NEVER allow your barrel to dry out (especially during dry seasons).
  • Please read this article (especially the "how to care for your barrel") when buying a new barrel to ensure that it is conditioned and to be leak free.

Perfect little infinity cask

Great workmanship, the Blog's by Distillique on mini-cask maturation is both interesting and informative.
The cask itself is perfect for an "infinity Cask" i.e. instead of a bottle for the last shots in a soon to be killed whisky bottle, pour it into a infinity cask and enjoy a blended dram from time to time of all the good ones you have enjoyed.
Will require a bit of work to "run it in", no sweat. Look forward to it.
Great craftmanship on the cask, no leaks detected at all. Would have been better with brass rings, but, those are hard to come by.
Many thanks.

Mini-Maturation Cask

Exactly what I wanted for experimenting with.
No frills cask which will be used to evaluate certain Sherry finishes on certain whisky styles.
Find that a Free Flow Pourer is perfect to avoid any spillages and avoid chunky pieces of wood coming out.
Did a leak test for 5 days, no leaks observed.

Not what i expected

When purchasing this barrel it was not obvious that it did not possess a spigot for ease of decanting. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS
Overall service was fine and delivery quick and painless but at this price point was truly expecting more...
