Barrel Aged Cocktail Kit

In two weeks time, you can mature your own small-batch, oak-aged cocktails.

$30.00 - 35.00

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

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.

Kit comes with 3 staves. Replacement Staves are a set of 5.

My brother is notoriously hard to shop for. However when I found this gift I knew it would be perfect for him. If you are completely at a loss for a present that doesn't break the bank--look no further.

The barrel sticks last for a long while, so even though it is unfortunate that you are only given three of them, the longevity is worth the price. The only reason why this product is four stars and not five is because to buy new barrel sticks is $30 for 5 sticks-- A bit steep for replacements.

This product came with a minimal explanation of its uses. I had to navigate away to different pages just to educate myself on what the product actually did. Had I known the replacement parts were so small, I never would have purchased them. The bottle size for the entire kit say 12 oz. That's comparable to a can of soda. But there are no specifications on the staves themselves. If they are going to sell the pieces separately then there should be equal descriptions. The impression I was under was these staves would be suitable for an average size bottle of spirits, and these clearly are not. You would need to purchase the bottles with the kit if you don't have small bottles lying around, which we do not. I'm unsure about whether or not more than one stave can be used at the same time.

Great for a gift that must be able to travel

Comments about UncommonGoods Barrel Aged Cocktail Kit:

For my wedding, I have two Maids of Honor and one Made of Honor which is my male best friend. As he has to travel across the country for this event, his gift had to be one that had great value but could safely survive airplane travel. For someone who love scotch, this is perfect!

                    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!

                              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.
