Wood Type

We've listened to your requests for more opportunities to experiment with different wood types at home. I'm excited to announce that we are now offering maturation sticks in both Maple and Cherry, with additional wood options on the horizon. This is our way of inviting you to explore and play with the unique flavors and characteristics that different woods can bring to your spirits. Stay tuned for more varieties to enhance your aging experience.


  • Pack Size: 4 sticks, each measuring 1 inch by 4 inches (25mm x 100mm).
  • Usage Recommendation: One stick per gallon (or 4 Liters) of spirit.


Custom Toasting & Charring:

  • Suggested Toasting: Develop your desired flavor profile with a recommended toast at 350°F for 30 to 60 minutes.
  • DIY Charring: Customize the char level with a blow torch


DIY Preparation Steps:

  1. Preheat: Your oven or another heat source to the desired temperature, typically between 350°F to 400°F (177°C to 204°C).
  2. Toast: Place the maturation sticks in your preheated oven or on the heating source. Toasting time can vary based on desired flavor profile, with longer lengths offering deeper complexity.  Start at 30 minutes and let your eyes and nose tell you when it's toasted.
  3. Cool Down: After toasting, remove the stick and allow it to cool completely. This cooling period lets the flavors in the wood settle and integrate.
  4. Age Your Spirit: Submerge the cooled sticks in your spirit, ensuring full immersion. Regular tasting is recommended to monitor flavor development.



  1. Experiment with Toasting Levels: Different toasting levels (light, medium, heavy) can impart different flavors.
  2. Safety First: Always be cautious when handling hot equipment and materials.
  3. Note on Flavor Profile: The wood's origin and treatment significantly impact the final flavor profile. Our sticks are chosen for how they're seasoned and their ability to enhance a wide range of spirits.

Bung leak potential .

I’ve came across two bunges that had just a small edge that didn’t allow for a optimal seal but was easily sanded and was fine after that , this is not a complaint just a heads up , great job guys your doing a fantastic job keeping the quality going

Thank you for the heads up on the bung issue. Bungs should seal properly without requiring modification. If you come across any more that are not sealing correctly, please let me know and I'll send replacements right away. Thanks for your support!
