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. Handmade by coopers in Manassas, Virginia.

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.

I'd hoped that this kit would be a fun activity to share with my husband. It comes nicely packaged with clear instructions. Unfortunately my barrel would not cease leaking through the curing process and I am returning it.

I would not recommend this product to anyone

By 

from Cary, NC

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey and Rum Making Kit:

I bought this product for my husband last Christmas. It was about a third of the budget but I thought it'd be great and something he could use over and over. Boy was I wrong - we followed the directions to prep the barrel. I also gifted him a whole bottle of vodka which he then started aging. He turned it as instructed, tasted it a couple of times throughout the process, etc. But when it was time to pour it all out, there was maybe 0.75 mL left...all of it had either been absorbed or evaporated!!! We asked to return it, and it was basically finger pointing that we didn't follow instructions. They eventually sent me a return letter, but it's very frustrating considering how pricey it was

Birthday Gift

By 

from Maryland

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey and Rum Making Kit:

I bought this gift for my impossible to buy for father in law for his birthday. He was so happy with it and started immediately making whiskey. He loves it. I got him two more kits for his birthday this year so he could make more. We checked on the progress he was making and he left the whiskey in too long and now it is a sipping drink, instead of four fingers he only drinks one finger.

Birthday gift

By 

from King of Prussia,PA

Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey and Rum Making Kit:

This was an awesome gift that my wife got me for my birthday. It's really easy to use and the final product is awesome. We made sure to add a little bit of sugar to give it a sweeter note. Our favorite so far is the rum! We just finished using all of the starter kit and will be ordering a refill soon.

Cool idea, a little misleading.

By 

from Colorado

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey and Rum Making Kit:

This item is currently sitting on our counter full of water. It's sealing itself. Pretty cool! It's easy to use and the instructions are great.
On the down side.... You aren't really making alcohol. You have to buy alcohol and then add in one of the small bottles they give you to make bourbon, whiskey, or rum. That was unexpected. Buying alcohol to make alcohol.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was great! It was a day earlier than originally planned. Came well packaged with lots of padding!!
