Small The Better

Barrel aged cocktails are one of the latest trends in mixology in which pre-mixed cocktails are placed in barrels to mature. The technique's purpose is to change the cocktail's character and flavor, mellowing any sharper flavors in the same way wines and distilled spirits are aged. This kit was developed to allow for barrel aging on a smaller scale. Rather than filling a whole barrel with a cocktail and waiting months for it to mature, the barrel aged cocktail kit allows cocktail enthusiasts to make a smaller batch, which will mature in about two weeks. Bottle made in Germany. Staves made in Minnesota. Kit developed at a small, family-run distillery in New York.

Exclusive Made in the USA
Ages
21+

Care

Notes
Basic instructions: Prepare your cocktail recipe. Place 1 stave in the bottle, and pour in your cocktail. Bottle holds 12 oz. Check after 1 week and every couple of days thereafter. You will notice the increasing flavor complexity. Remove the stave before the cocktail becomes over-oaked, usually after about 2 weeks.

                    My husband enjoys the art of the perfect cocktail and this kit allows him to add another dimension to his favorite creations. He had a few questions regarding what alcohols work well and what to stay away from. The customer service he received was perfect and he has since aged two cocktails. The smoky flavors have really enhanced the drinks and he is beyond thrilled with his new cocktail tool. Image kit is easy to use, easy to clean, quality and looks great sitting on the bar cart. Thank you for a great gift!

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Delivery was very prompt, the product arrived almost a week before I expected it to. The gift packaging was beautiful and the products were in pristine condition.

                              I was looking for something different to give my guy friend for his 33rd birthday. He has lots of hobbies and enjoys making things. His only complaint about this gift was that it took too long to recieve (my fault) he loved it! It comes with 3 staves and the rum takes about 2 weeks to age. So your gift will get plenty of use.
