These barrels are made of Brand-Spanking-New Fresh American White Oak and have a medium toast level.
Please bear in mind when filling the barrel that fresh oak is incredibly powerful and absolutely packed full of flavour and aroma.
Given the fact that no other spirit has ever been stored in the barrel, the effect of the oak on the spirit you fill into it will be very forceful. If you’re after creating your own whisky from new-make spirit, or indeed transforming a vodka into something oak-rich and powerful, this is good news. If you’re after adding a subtle barrel-aged note to a light and delicate cocktail or gin, then it’s probably not a good thing – you’d be well advised to store some vodka or ‘something else’ in it for a couple of weeks first.
On receiving the cask the metal hoops may feel a tad loose, don’t worry – this is normal - they will tighten up as the wood expands after the cask is filled.

Received my miniature barrel (5 litres) today after ordering barely two days ago, very pleased. It was well packaged, looks great and as I am typing this, sitting next to me full of water to seal it before I fill it some lovely spirit. There were one or two leaks initially but they are already settling down and the smell coming from it is amazing just with the water in it. Overall I am very pleased with this item. Thanks folks!

Very quick delivery even with the Christmas rush.I filled it with water for 2 days and so that the wood could soak it up and that stopped it leaking.Now time to experiment mixing whiskys.Overall very pleased with product, thank you.
