The perfect occasion to gift an oak barrel

We all have that one person in our lives who has everything… But a personalised whiskey barrel is a left-of-centre gift that will get a lot of use and last for decades to come. Constructed from American White Oak with either black steel or galvanised steel bands, the receiver will be impressed with the incredible sturdiness and quality of their new whiskey barrel.

We’ve got whiskey barrels for sale to suit almost any occasion!

  • Weddings — If you’re preparing for your upcoming nuptials, you’re probably also planning the traditional Couples Gift Exchange. It’s an old tradition for the loved-up couple to exchange gifts the night before the wedding or even after the ceremony is complete — a personalised whiskey barrel is a fun way to commemorate the wedding and even create an heirloom to pass down through the generations.
  • Bucks parties — Named a Best Man? Thank them for all their hard work organising the bucks night with a commemorative oak barrel with their initials and “Best Man” engraved into the wood. Make sure to fill ‘er up before the bucks party, so you and your Best Man can share an oaky beverage on a night to remember.

With their name, initials and either “Aged to Perfection” or “Aged to Distinction” engraved into the wood, the receiver can look back on fond memories of their milestone birthday (and the person who gifted their excellent barrel).
  • A retirement — It’s always sad to see a beloved coworker go… but you can give them something to remember you by with a great retirement gift! We have a huge range of plain and customisable barrels available so you can add their name and initials, or a touching message to send them off.

Customise a whiskey barrel online and get it shipped directly to your door… or the receiver’s door! We offer free standard shipping Australia-wide.

How to keep an oak barrel sealed

Oak barrels are designed to hold liquid — the oakwood expands when filled with water, creating a watertight seal. However, if you want to take extra precautions to ensure your barrel doesn’t leak or crack, we have a few tips to help maintain your barrel.

  • We recommend sealing your barrel immediately to prevent unnecessary leakages. We provide sealing instructions with your purchase, so follow our instructions to a tee.
  • Once sealed, your barrel should be stored in a cool damp environment to keep the exterior from drying out and to minimise evaporation.
  • Some permanent dark patina and light surface rust may appear on the oakwood and rings during the sealing process — these are authentic characteristics of genuine oak barrels. Patina is created during the sealing process but wiping the barrel dry and keeping it elevated above drip water and moisture during the sealing process.
  • If your barrel contains Port, hold the bung in place and shake your barrel every two weeks. Then, remove the bung for a few seconds to release fermented gas.
  • Check the content level monthly to replace any evaporation (otherwise known as Angel’s Share). The contents of your barrel should never fall below 50% as this can cause cracking. If you have allowed your barrel to dry out, please contact us for sealing and waxing advice.

If you ever have any questions about how to seal and care for your barrel, feel free to get in touch via sales@giftfactory.com.au or contact us online! Our team would be more than happy to provide tips and advice to help you get the most out of your barrel.

FAQs about our range of Personalised Oak Barrels & Kegs for sale

It’s easy! Just choose a design from our range of oak barrels for sale and choose the hoop colour, the barrel size and the tap option, then upload your custom design to the product page. Here, you can see your design on the barrel before making a purchase.

After submitting your order, we will create your design and email it to you within one business day so you can review the design and request changes. We never engrave until we receive your final approval!

– 2L (180 x 140 x 140mm)

Our American White Oak Barrels are perfect for aging or serving wine, tequila, brandy, whiskey, scotch, bourbon, cognac, port or even vinegar! The choice is yours.

Our barrels are designed to hold wine and add delicious aromas. All you need to do is make sure your barrel is properly sealed from day one. We have both large and small wine barrels for sale online — browse through the range and start serving wine like a pro!

There’s no “one-size-fits-all” formula for aging spirits — it all comes down to personal preference. However, we do recommend tasting your spirits at least once a month. Smaller barrels will age the spirit faster than larger barrels (approximately five to 10 times faster). To stop the aging process and eliminate the risk of unnecessary evaporation, simply empty your barrel into a decanter and start your next batch.

It depends on the environment that the barrel is kept in, but we recommend checking the level of your barrel once a month and replace the Angel’s Share. Your barrel should never be under 50% empty as this can cause cracking.

If your barrel seems to be leaking, please contact our team for sealing and waxing instructions. We know our way around an oak barrel, so we are here to help.

Each barrel is made to order and the processing time is approximately two business days from design approval. Shipping can take between one and 14 business days depending on your location.
