Personalized Whiskey Barrel

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

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 this on 11/14 and when I recieved it I only took a peak at it, then wrapped it up for Christmas for my fiancé. Today's Christmas morning and he opened it. 3 of the rings just fell right off. I'll attach pictures. There's also a chunk of broken wood within the barrel. You can hear it if you shake it. I'm very upset that I spent all that money on something that turns out to be broken. And it clearly states it can't be returned. Alls I can say now is I'll never buy another thing from this company, unless they solve this problem, I may reconsider. I was just so excited about this as a gift , and it just turned out so horrible. Basically just threw away money in the garbage. The Spicket also looks like it was really cheaply made. And no it was not somewhere that was extremely hot/ cold.

Cute gift for Whiskey Lovers who are hard to shop for!

Comments about UncommonGoods Personalized Whiskey Barrel:

The product itself is nice, beware the small size is exactly that - SMALL! I doubt the gift recipient will actually use it to age whiskey, but it certainly looks nice displayed. The first barrel I ordered had a typo and fortunately I caught that before Christmas. I contacted Customer Service and they were kind enough to replace the first item and expedite shipping.

Comments about UncommonGoods Personalized Whiskey Barrel:

My bf stops to show everyone this gift as he shows people his new house. I thought it was great as a housewarming as the city and year he bought his house is part of the customization. He's only in the curing process, but he's already geeked about looking forward to following the order to enjoy particular alcohol as advised in the booklet that comes from the maker.
