Urban Bar Oak Barrel 1L

If you fancy the idea ageing some spirits yourself and want to give it a go, Urban Bar has got something for you - it's a small oak barrel, which can hold one litre of gin, rum, malt spirit, cocktails, or really any type of spirit you want to put in there. It's made from American white oak, and it has a medium char.

When you get your barrel, you might notice the hoops around it are a bit loose. Curing the barrel will rectify this. Fill it with hot water and let it sit for up to a week. This will cause the wood to swell, plugging any gaps and keeping it all together. If you haven't used the barrel in a while, you'll want to do this again.

Before you age your spirit, you should consider how much oak influence you want imparted to it. If you're looking for a more delicate helping of oak, you might choose to fill the barrel with vodka for a few weeks prior to placing your spirit inside it.

It's also worth noting the rate of evaporation is quiet high with these small barrels, since the surface area to volume ratio of the barrel is very high, and it's probably unlikely that you'll be placing it somewhere with as low a temperature as a warehouse in Scotland. You'll want to keep an eye on it, and turn it regularly to keep all parts of the barrel wet.
