How Do You Age Fine Spirits in Oak Barrels?
The secret to aging is in the char. Each handcrafted barrel features a medium toast char on the interior. The charring process draws sugar from the oak, which caramelizes on the inner wall as it cools. The sugar mellows the harshness of the spirit and the longer it ages the smoother it gets. Because these oak barrels are sized for home bars (vs. the large 55 gallons used by distilleries) your spirits will ag 8-10 times faster.
Savings up to 70%. Why pay distilleries when you can create your own premium blend spirits yourself? It's the gift that continues to give for years and years. From novices to home brewers alike, anyone can become a master and add amazing oak flavor to their drink of choice.

Important note about wood engraving: The images displayed for this product feature the actual barrel in natural sunlight with an overlay of the exact design file used by the engraver for personalization. White oak is a beautiful wood species; rich in natural grain pattern and density so the appearance of the engraving can vary (lighter or darker) based upon the wood's own character. You may see some contrast differences within an engraved design on your barrel. This is perfectly normal & makes your barrel truly unique. You can be assured that New England Trading Co. will make every effort to ensure the quality of your barrel!
