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.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.
