The oak barrel I received was absolutely incredible! So patient and helpful with the custom design I asked for, and replied very quickly to help get it all sorted. There was a genuine sense of care here, it was as if he was doing it for himself and wanted it to look as perfect as possible. Very helpful even after I received the product too. Would rate higher if I could!
Quality – Authentic – Handcrafted
Quality Hand Crafted Oak barrels & Beer Mugs – Each barrel, is individually hand crafted from American white Oak using traditional methods. Our craftsmen take great care to retain the Authenticity and Characteristics of a handcrafted Oakwood barrel. As a result no two barrels are the same. Select from one of 3 band options, the “Black Rustic Steel” option provides an authentic rustic patina with light grains of rust and aged markings. The “Galvanized Steel” option is an authentic steel colour with rustic characteristics and mild patina, and the ‘Brass” band option provides a more ornamental & decorative look but still retains that rustic look and handcrafted imperfections
Customise your barrel with one of our designs, or send us your custom design. Fastidious attention and care is paid with each barrel engraving using our state of the art in house laser engraving technology, however every piece of Oak is unique therefore the darkness of the engraving is authentically uncontrollable.
Aroma – Flavour – Colour
Ageing a wine or spirit in our barrels has the effect of transmitting the taste of charred white oak into your beverage. Each barrel is medium charred on the inside to impart flavours, aromas & colouring into your wine or spirit. For best results, store in a humid place where it is not exposed to sunlight or heat. The time required to age your beverage depends on your personal taste. This can be anywhere from a few months to three years.

Not all Oak barrels are made equal. Our barrels are hand crafted using traditional methods, and will seal naturally by filling the barrel with water, water-logging each wooden stave and expanding them into the metal rings until all wooden joints are closed. Char staining and Patina will occur which is an unavoidable and authentic characteristic produced as a result of the sealing process. Our Barrels do not contain bladders, wax, paint or glue on the inside.
