The barrel is well made, and really makes an impressive gift. The engraving on it looked great as well.
My Dad has been brewing beer, and recently began making wine. He uses glass growlers to age his wine. This oak barrel will give him a chance to inexpensively experiment with wood aging, as well as an attractive keepsake.
Father uses a his to age liquor aswell as port
I got the larger barrel and am very happy I did. The writing on the front is really nice. This will look great in our entertainment room.

I was surprised at how small the 2-L barrel was, in fact we measured it and calculated the volume, and yes, it is 2-L. Hasn't been given as a gift yet but I think it will be well received. Very pleased.
The design is absolutely beautiful. I love the fact that it is fully functional for wine making. I would love to purchase one for myself in the future. It's a rustic, beautiful, decorative, and functional little wine cask that our wine connoisseur coworker loves! It was a great going away present.

I purchased this as a gift for my parents' 30th anniversary. They make their own wine, and this gift will make that process more stylish.
This looks great and my girlfriend loved it!
My daughter held her wedding reception at a winery and this gift is a perfect remembrance of the day! It's beautifully personalized and will look lovely on their wine rack.

The first barrel arrived in good condition, but the personalization was done with what it seems a wood burning kit and it's very pale. It was an anniversary gift, so I was disappointed about the quality of the customization. I ordered the smaller one for a friend, hoping it would be better. It arrived chipped in two joint areas. The personalization was very nice. It's carved not burned into it. CommonGoods is working to resolve the problem with the small one, but hasn't replied about the subpar customization for the bigger more expensive one.
