Distilleries normally use large 53 gallon oak barrels to age their spirits because they are more concerned with larger volume to satisfy their large customer base. Since you only want to age enough of your favorite liquor and wine for you and your friends and family you don’t need to use a 53 gallon oak barrel. By using one of our 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, or 20 liter American White Oak Barrels to age you can do it much faster. The main reason is because the ratio of liquor in contact with the wood at any given time is much greater in a small barrel. So the rate your liquor will filter in and out of the staves (sides) of the oak barrel is much faster. Which means the flavor is influenced and changed sooner so you can enjoy your drink quicker.
