Why would anyone want to purchase Tequila Infused Barrels?
- The barrel is already cured and ready to use. Just pour your liquor in and start aging.
- If you want to age your own tequila now you don’t have to worry about the barrel soaking up your liquor during the curing stage. (higher drinking yield) The small barrel size provides a greater surface area to volume ratio (more wood in contact with liquid) which results in increased extraction.
- If you are aging some tequila it tastes better when you can age it in a tequila infused barrel since it will pull the flavors in from the wood.
- You may want to age something else in your tequila infused barrel. The tequila that is soaked in to the barrel will add a new flavor to whatever you age in it. You don’t have to purchase two different liquors – one to cure and flavor the barrel and one to age. The barrel will come pre-flavored.
Before now if you wanted a Tequila Infused Barrel you had to cure it yourself.
These barrels are guaranteed to hold your liquor and not leak. We empty the tequila out of the barrel right before we send it to you. It will not dry out enough in just the few days for shipping to be a problem. Just make sure you fill it with your whiskey or liquor within a few days after receiving it.
NOTE – You will need to fill the barrel with your alcohol (or distilled water if you are not ready) as soon as you receive it so it doesn’t dry out. Once a used whiskey barrel dries out it may not cure up.
