Aging Liquor in Oak Barrels
For hundreds of years people have been aging liquor in various ways. While there are a number of ways to go about this, oak barrels continue to be among the most popular. This is in part because oak has natural resistance insects and doesn’t easily rot. It is also because oak is reactive. That means that the wood itself reacts to whatever you put in the barrel and causes a flavor change. The wood gives the liquid a bolder flavor, mellows the alcohol taste, and gives an enriched smoothness.
The barrels at Red Head Oak Barrels have been designed with all of this in mind. The oak barrels are available in sizes between one and twenty liters and can be engraved to your liking. The idea behind Red Head Oak Barrels is to allow you to experiment with aging your own liquor. They also offer bottled essences that you can use to infuse your liquor or wine with that extra rich taste. These barrels are perfect for experimenting with your favorite rum, brandy, tequila, whiskey, or any other type of liquor you might think tastes better with age. Because the barrels offered by Red Head are smaller than those used in large production, the liquor will age at faster rate, and be ready for you to taste in as little as a few days.
