Description 

Have you ever wanted to make a true bourbon barrel stout, or an oak aged barleywine? We now have 5 gallon American Oak bourbon barrels from Reservoir Distilling in Virginia. These are once used barrels which have stored Reservoir's premium craft bourbon for at least 2 years before being drained on December 3rd, 2018. These impart a deep whisky/bourbon-oak flavor and are perfect for aging your strong ales, and also ideal for sour ales. Barrels are crafted in the USA from oak grown in Virginia. A wood stand is optional. 13.5" wide, 17.5" long, 17.5" tall with optional stand. Very limited supply.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Note that wood barrels are imperfect, and may leak when initially filled, particularly if they are not filled within two weeks of receiving. They all have stains on them from seepage, which is normal for all oak spirit barrels.  We do not guarantee against leakage, but leaking barrels can be repaired by rehydration or wood plugs, check YouTube for instructional videos. Always fill a barrel with water and leave for 24 hours before use to check for leaks.

NOTE: This weighs 28 pounds and is an actual shipping item. Shipping will be charged at checkout based on your delivery zip code.

Good barrels, watch the Char level
These barrel have a burnt char level of 5 in them. That is much darker than your standard bourbon barrel char of 3-4. Should list the char level on the description.

What is the proper stopper size for the Reservior barrels?
They come with wooden bungs, but a #9 Stopper fits them perfectly.
