We have heard our customers cries for some high quality sustainable reusable barrels with a story to tell so please read on...
These barrels were coopered by Australia's own South Australia Cooperage just outside Adelaide before being sent to an independent Australian winery where they held Apera PX (Pedro Ximenez) Fortified Wine (Sherry) for over a decade.
These barrels have since been charred and held Starward Whisky for a several years. Recently disgorged, these barrels smell devine and are still wet with the remnants of the finest well rested Starward Whisky. Upon pulling the bung your senses are enveloped with rich plum, fig, high fruit and whisky esters.
These barrels are now looking for their 3rd home. Our Search is Your Satisfaction! Can you look after these barrels and store your own precious clean or sour beer or spirit?
