Whiskey and Rum Making Kit

Age scotch whiskey, spiced rum, or a full-bodied Kentucky bourbon to your taste with this personalized cask.

$25.00 - 75.00

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

      Barrel was very little, I expected for price it would be big

      Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey and Rum Making Kit:

      I think for the price it was too little, barrel was too little for price I paid. If barrel was bigger, would make for a better gift.

      this came in a short time ago, we followed the instructions and now have started our first batch.
      it's too early to report in the results, but we are having fun with it.

      Not exactly impressed.

      By 

      from Lykens, Pa

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey and Rum Making Kit:

      Even though the description says it will make a 1/5, it was still MUCH smaller than i'd hoped for. And the quality of the wood left alot to be desired. I expected a larger, better made product for the money i spent. I am not likely to reccomend this product to anyone. I was almost ashamed when my dad opened it on fathers day.

      Service and delivery comments:

      My order did arrive on time and it was well packaged. A very large box on the outside, with a smaller box on the inside, and an even smaller box inside of that.

      Got for fiance on Fathers Day

      Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey and Rum Making Kit:

      Its just like the picture. Very adorable. It's made from real oak and pretty hefty for a little barrel. My fiance loved it. I read the inserts and brochure that goes along with it. There were cleaning supplies, 3 flavors for distilling and a brochure of other flavors and where to buy. Overall, I thought this gift was pretty boss and he was so impressed.

      Quality did not meet expectations

      By 

      from New Paltz, NY

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey and Rum Making Kit:

      I bought this as a birthday present for my boyfriend. Being the whiskey enthusiast that he is he was super excited to try it out. The first batch that he made he lost about a quarter to a third of the alcohol, which seemed like a lot to lose due to "angel's share". We noticed that the face of barrel seemed like it was coming apart while in use but we weren't sure if that was the issue. Well, my boyfriend just tried to prepare the barrel for a second batch and it is completely unusable at this point. Liquid just pours out of the face of the barrel. After multiple tries to get it to stop leaking he's given up. To only be used once this is definitely not worth the price and had I known this I would have spent my money on something else. We're both very disappointed that the quality standards aren't there because this otherwise would have been an excellent gift.
