Whiskey and Rum Making Kit

Age scotch whiskey, spiced rum, or a full-bodied Kentucky bourbon to your taste with this handsome 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.

Would buy again.


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.

Great original gift!


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.

Fun and easy to use


Bought as a gift for my boyfriend, but I enjoyed the end result just as much as he did. So fun!



This is super 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.



Father son project


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 would not buy this product again


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.

High hopes for this kit


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.



Great gift for bourbon drinker


This product made a perfect Christmas gift for my bourbon loving husband. Not too big so it can sit on the counter while aging.

Wilmington, NC


Quick to replace lost item


We haven't actually used the product, as it's a Christmas present. I did open the box to make sure nothing was broken however, and it looks wonderful.


I would not recommend this product to anyone


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
