    There was a small problem in that all the order did not get shipped. I called and talked to Matt who got it straightened out quickly. Thank you very much. When the rest of the order came in there were some extra goodies and a very nice handwritten note from Aimee apologizing for the mistake. It has been my experience that people who don’t make mistakes occasionally aren’t doing much. Tell her not to worry. Thank you all. I am looking forward to receiving the 26 gal unit I ordered. Spring is near.

    Thanks again, Mac

    Nice barrel

  10. Rated 5 out of 5


    Barrel was drop shipped very quickly. It is well built, attractive, and ready to go with instructions, two sterilizing tablets, and a little bit of literature. The price on this site is the same as or better than other sites and you can get it with all of your other distilling supplies saving you extra shipping costs! While aging on oak chips in glass will give many of the same effects, it doesn’t allow the product to breath which an oak barrel does. If you are a hobbyist, I strongly suggest this 5L barrel.

    I was excited to add your 5 Liter Oak Barrel to my collection of Oak aging barrels. It arrived 8 days from ordering it, not bad for shipping times…
    However it would not hold water after 24 hours of being submerged in water. I called and spoke to a gentleman about this and he recommended I wait for 4-5 days. I did… After the 5th day it would still not hold water. Mike let me Know he would get me a replacement barrel sent out promptly. It came in today, and I will fill it with water soon. Here is hoping it holds water. Thank You for the fast response to this issue. I look forward to many more purchases from you. GP

    True to the tradition this barrel was made old school. Should work for aging well and imagine that it’ll be around for years to come.

    Our 5 L Barrel arrived quickly and in good condition. We filled it up with water after attaching the spigot and bung, as the directions stated, and now we’re just waiting to fill it with some delicious spirits for aging. The barrel is beautiful – a gift for my boyfriend that he is very eager to start using!

    Rodney MACKENZIE

    Once again, a well made and presented barrel, only let down was the lack of “black hoops” as per description. Only an aesthetic issue, I know, but not as depicted. Would have given it 4.5 stars if that was an option.

    I love the barrel!
    I have had white, 125 proof, primarily rye whiskey in it for a week and it already tastes amazing!!! (I read some where that you should taste it once a week and note changes in flavor)
    I went the extra mile and used “distilled” boiled water to prime my barrel. It never leaked from the get-go!
    I would recommend getting your barrel from these folks!

    Feedback Thudpucker

    Looked good at the pig roast, people enjoyed dispensing their own whiskey. Spigot worked well. 5 liters is roughly equivalent to 1 Gallon, so it’s not a terribly large barrel but it is well made and comes with everything you need except a funnel. (or whiskey)
