Bootleg Up!

You don't need to work in a distillery to age and season your favorite spirits like a pro. Fashioned in timeless style, this handsome barrel is more than just an eye-catching centerpiece: like its big siblings found in professional distilleries, it can actually age your spirits to peak flavor. Take mixology into your own hands and create your own signature Highland malt scotch whiskey, spiced rum, or full-bodied Kentucky bourbon.

To start, cure your barrel then pour grain alcohol or neutral flavored vodka into the vessel along with one bottle of your choice of Swish Barrel Essence--you can choose from spiced rum, Kentucky bourbon whiskey, and Highland malt whiskey. Give it a good shake to incorporate the ingredients then sit tight because in just two weeks time your one-of-a-kind blend will be aged to perfection and ready to serve straight from the tap. Made in the USA.

Kit Comes With:
1L American White Oak Barrel w/stand, bung and spigot
3 Essences - Highland malt scotch whiskey, spiced rum, Kentucky bourbon
Paper Funnel
Barrel Cleaning Kit
Complete Instructions for use

      He loved this gift! He makes his own beer regularly and thought this would be a fun thing to try. He was a little confused about the bottles of essence as he thought they might be a cheat. He's also thinking of other uses for the barrel and loved that it was seasoned.

        I gave this to my husband for his birthday and he loved it. It did leak a little when he poured the hot water in but it was fine once the whiskey was in it. It is a great display item as well when it isn't being used. We look forward to tasting our homade whiskey!

          Comments about WHISKEY AND RUM MAKING KIT:

          Haven't had a chance to do more than prepare this for it's first use yet, but so far it seems like it will be fun. The barrel is much smaller than I imagined, not sure how an entire liter will fit in it. The barrel seems to be made of high quality parts, and hopefully the whiskey tastes good. The limited instructions is a bit concerning though, it seems there are plenty of Q&As but not much as far as what to do.
