Dive into a world where wood meets wonder. With our Quartersawn American White Oak Barrel, every sip is a journey.

Please note that the unique aging process may result in variations in appearance and texture, adding to the barrel's distinctiveness. Every barrel comes with its own unique serial number, so the one you receive might differ from the one shown in the picture.

The toast and char levels of a barrel have a significant impact on the final flavor profile of a spirit. Here are some general suggestions based on different toasting and charring combinations:

Light Toast, Char 1:

• Gin: A light toast with minimal char is great for gin, which benefits from subtle flavor enhancements that don't overshadow its botanicals.

• White Rum: This combination will add a bit of complexity without making the rum too heavy or oaky.

• Tequila: This would add a subtle depth to silver tequila-style spirits if you're interested in aging it for a short period.

Medium Toast, Char 2:

• Bourbon Whiskey: A medium toast with a #2 char provides a balanced profile, adding a touch of caramel and vanilla flavors.

• Rye Whiskey: This brings out the spicy notes in rye whiskey while balancing it with some sweeter undertones.

• Apple Brandy: This combo complements the fruitiness of the brandy.

Medium-Plus Toast, Char 3:

• Scotch: A deeper toast and more significant char contribute complexity to Scotch-style whiskies.

• Aged Rum: This combo can give the rum more depth and a more balanced profile.

• Mezcal: For those interested in aging Mezcal-style spirits, a medium-plus toast and #3 char can add a lot of intrigue without overwhelming the spirit's natural smokiness.

Heavy Toast, Char 4:

• Dark Rums: A heavy toast with a high char level is excellent for producing a rich, deeply flavored rum.

• Bold Bourbons: For a bourbon with robust flavors, a heavy toast and #4 char can bring out dark chocolate, coffee, and smoky notes.

• Armagnac: This would add substantial body and complexity to a grape-based spirit.

Remember, these are just suggestions, and the actual outcome can vary based on many factors like the original spirit, aging time, and environmental conditions. Feel free to experiment and find what suits your personal taste best!

Arrived in Western Australia in 9 days. No leaks, smells great. Exchange rate stung a little but great product and customer service.

Jonathan Gore

I'm only a few weeks into the process but so far so good. The build quality is outstanding, and the communication is top notch. I asked a question via email around 9pm and got a response within 5 minutes. Incredible customer service!!

I recently purchased a barrel using the holiday promo code, which was extremely helpful due to the additional international shipping charges (to Australia). The barrel was delivered unexpectedly fast to Australia (less than a week and I was expecting a month). As always, the barrel is a quality product and the smell of the toasted and charred oak when opening the box and bag makes me confident that it will create something special. Thanks to Chris and his team for carrying on Ben's vision and helping the hobbyists out there to creating something spectacular. -Kelly (Australia)

This is my second barrel. The first one is still in the rick house (attic). Got it during the last sale and it was a great deal. Looking forward to putting it to work.

John Sturgis

I now own three barrels plus one mallet. Ordering process was smooth. Perhaps a little confusing at first but all went well, quite well. Planning on purchasing more barrels shortly. For a hobbyist, this barrel is fantastic. Perfect size, easy fill, and today, no leaks! Excellent workmanship and appearance. I am very happy.
