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 wheat whiskey for at least 2 years before being drained on December 3rd, 2018.  These impart a deep whisky/wheat-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. 17.5" long, 13.5" tall, 17.5" tall when on optional stand. Very limited supply. Note, appearance may vary, barrels are either imprinted with the variety or it is handwritten.

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 barrel
This is a heavy barrel with tight bands.  Very heavy whisky smell when bung removed.  Remember, always re-hydrate barrel from the outside by soaking entire barrel in warm water.  This preserves the whiskey flavor....tightens up the seam...and ensures your aged beer turns our fantastic.  In 8 months ask me how my aged beer turned out.  I am expecting excellence.
