Personalized Whiskey Barrel

Peak flavor, aged to perfection—your favorite whiskey brand gets a personalized spin.

$85.00 - 200.00

Oak It In

More than just a handsome homage to a whiskey-loving couple, this miniature oak barrel ages spirits to peak flavor, just like its full-sized siblings found in professional distilleries. Its petite proportions accelerate the aging process, meaning that the recipient's choice of liquor will hit its prime up to ten times faster. Oak is beloved of distillers because it imparts flavor to spirits through three main compounds: Lignin, which adds vanillin for vanilla and marzipan-like flavors, lactones, which give rise to buttery, coconut notes, and tannins, which add astringent, spicy flavors. Before first use, make sure to cure the barrel for 3-5 days, as mentioned in the included instructions. Turn the barrel and taste the contents weekly, and when they reach their ideal oakiness, enjoy a glass straight from the tap. Handmade by coopers in Manassas, Virginia. Ages 21+.

This unique, customized whiskey barrel was purchased as a gift for a friend/co-worker, who is an avid whiskey connoisseur. The barrel arrived in a timely manner, was beautiful in design, exactly as ordered. Instructions for use and care were easy to follow. It is a functional whiskey barrel that has added a beautiful aged quality to his whiskey. Sure to become a family heirloom. The only negative to the product is the unfinished base that is provided. Not a big deal, they will simply sand it smooth and add a quick coating of varnish to seal. I'm not sure if all the bases come this unfinished, but this one did. Definitely not an issue when you consider the beauty of the barrel for the affordable cost. Looking forward to ordering others for all my whiskey lovers in my life! Great gift idea to commentate a special event.

I purchased it as a gift. After reading product description and reviews ( most of them were very positive) I was so excited to present this barrel to a very good friend of mine. However, to my disappointment and embarrassment, the barrel looks cheap quality, as if it just came off fast assembly line rather then custom-made piece of handcrafting. One of the rings around the barrel has a very visible dent, threads of wood around the holes... I'm not sure if the person I gave this gift is happy with it and going to keep it or use it.

Second marriage for both, planning our wedding that is not traditional and more fun... less stressful!
Fun loving couple that meet at a fundraiser both ordering a "Jack n Coke"

Hubby has our basement set up as the ultimate man cave with a sports bar theme and small brewery. He pretty much has it all...so he thought!! This whiskey barrel was the perfect gift and is one of the highlights to his ultimate man cave. I did order the 5L with the rum and whiskey kit and am so glad I did. It was the perfect size for the bar counter. The personalization was also gorgeous...thank you for creating such an amazing product!!

      With an ongoing family joke, being able to personalize this barrel really gives the gift a special meaning. The barrel is well made and the burned in personalization looks great.

      I bought this as a Christmas present for my father-in-law. I ordered extra early this year due do personalizations and the sight giving fair warning that it could take some extra time for them. Imagine my surprise when I get a shipping notice the next week. It arrived 3 weeks earlier than the promised shipping window and it is beautiful. My father-in-law will love it I'm sure.
