Bought for a Christmas gift but opened today to make sure all was okay. After reading reviews about spillages, I convinced myself it wouldn't happen to me; that surely uncommon goods had fixed the problem. I was wrong. One of the bottles had leaked all over everything and would have made a very poor presentation. He gets minus one bottle and sticky paper. This should not happen, easy to put in sealed bag.
Bought as a gift, hope they love it!
I bought by dad the barrel an whiskey/rum kit a couple years ago. It was so good and he loved making it himself. He kept the barrel and this year I remembered to buy him a refill. I can't wait for it to be ready in a few days!
It is a great little kit. We are waiting for the spirit to again at this point. But from the first tasting he did, it was very flavorful.
Still waiting to taste the final result. Would be a nice option if you could reorder specific flavours (your favorite) instead of just the three pack of refills.

Bought as a gift for my boyfriend, but I enjoyed the end result just as much as he did. So fun!
We are enjoying this barrel quite a bit. We're on our second batch now. It's fun to try it each week and see how far along the flavors have come. Would definitely recommend.
The product was very easy to use, this made it easy to make. Was a great time making it with my son who just turned 21 in Feb.

I followed all instructions. Lost 30% of barrel contents. But can't seem to reorder more supplies. They want to sell leaky barrels, not the "essence" bottles apparently.

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.
