When you distill a spirit, it invariably comes out clear as water. Put the clear spirit in contact with charred American oak, and it turns amber and mellow with toasted wood vanilla-like richness. Want to speed up the aging process? These new American Oak Barrels are charred on the inside (Char Level 3) for Whiskey, Bourbon, and Tequila aging. The small surface area compared with commercial 53 gallon barrels means these will age spirits much quicker than larger barrels. Handmade in Mexico following centuries old cooperage methods; the valve is wood and sealed with leather, and the top plug is wood and sealed with a wrap of leather. No plastic, rubber, or glue are used in construction.

Compared with a commercial 53 gallon oak barrel, this Twenty Liter (5 gallon) Barrel will age spirits the equivalent of one year in just 25 weeks. Twenty liters is the equivalent of 26 750ml bottles.  16.5” tall with bung and 17" long.

The included pine stand requires assembly, see thumbnail above.

BARRELS ARE IMPERFECT AND REQUIRE MAINTENANCE - These are wood barrels, and will initially leak unless first filled with water for 14 days so the staves can swell and seal. This may cause minor staining on the barrels and the included wood stands. They must be filled with water within 20 days of receiving or they will dry out and become unsealable, and cannot be left dry for long periods.
