Now you can make your own whiskey flavored alcohol right at home in your own charred oak barrel. All whiskies get 100% of their color and over 50% of their flavor from the oak barrel. Just add our essence to your unflavored vodka or other neutral spirit and age in the barrel until you have reached the flavor you like. It may only be a week or it could be a couple months. We like the flavor in about 3-4 weeks but it’s totally up to you.
Once you have aged your liquor and you are ready to remove it from the oak aging barrel you can pour it in to one of these 750 ml moonshine bottles.?? The moonshine bottle has the finger ring just like the old moonshine jugs used to have.? Of course you can keep your tequila, rum, whiskey, bootleg, scotch, wine or just about anything in it you like.
Also note – These barrels are often used for aging hot sauce as well.
These are actually new white American charred oak barrels that have been pre-cured with Whiskey, Bourbon or Scotch. You receive the 1 liter size. That’s right. There is a cup (or more) of fresh Whiskey, Bourbon or Scotch already soaked in to the wood of these barrels. Now you can start aging your new batch in an authentic flavor infused barrel.
NOTE – You will need to fill the barrel with your alcohol as soon as you receive it so it doesn’t dry out.? Once an infused barrel dries out it may not seal up again. These barrels take an extra 2-3 days before shipping.
Each infused barrel comes with a stand, bung and spigot.

Each wooden oak barrel mug is hand-made from authentic full size used oak barrels that were used to age, tequila, bourbon, whiskey or scotch.? It’s a miniature version of the full size oak barrels used all over the world to age liquor and wine. The barrel mug is even made from white American oak (just like the one used to age your rum, tequila, whiskey, bourbon, scotch, etc) we have coated it with a water proof finish of beeswax on the inside.? There is not a barrel mug on the market more authentic than this one. Black steel hoops just like the barrels used in wineries and distilleries.?? We can even engrave your initials or name on the outside for you.? If you choose engraving be sure to select a right or left handed engraving location.

What is an ageless barrel? Most people have never heard of it. Charred oak barrels are used to age whiskey, bourbon, wine, rum, tequila, etc. Anything you put in an oak AGING barrel will change color and flavor. But these barrels do not change the flavor or color of what you put in them. They are coated on the inside with all natural beeswax to make the wood waterproof to hold your liquid without absorbing. Therefore they are ageless barrels. You may just want to dispense your liquor from the barrel but you don’t want to change the flavor or lose it to the Angel’s Share (evaporation) Our 2 liter ageless barrel will hold approximately 1/2 gallon of whatever you want to put in it. We have them available in 1, 3, 5, 10 and 20 liter sizes too. They will last for years.
Have them it personalized with engraving and they make a great unique gift idea.
Each ageless oak barrel includes a bung, spigot, stand, paper funnel and instruction card.
Start infusing your cigars with your favorite liquor flavor right away.? Each charred oak barrel has a beautiful finish. Just fill the spray bottle with the essence. Spray a few times in the barrel and put your cigars in then put the lid on it. You can choose from any of our essence flavors to add your favorite taste to your favorite smoke.? Each kit includes the following:
Four sizes to choose from ?
1 Liter oak barrel is for short cigars with a maximum of about 4.5″. long or it works great for pipe or cigar tobacco or even a pack of cigarettes. The small barrel is 4 1/2″ wide.
The 2 liter bourbon kit is probably our most popular kit chosen for a gift that we have. The rise in boom for bourbon distilleries such as Evan Williams, Heaven Hill brands, Jim Beam has made it a popular taste among drinkers. The essence is added to an unflavored alcohol such as vodka, or other grain alcohol. 1 bottle of essence for each 750ml – 1L of alcohol. The barrel adds 100% of the color and over 50% of the flavor to your batch. Depending on the price of the inexpensive vodka or grain alcohol you can make bourbon flavored bootleg and save a half your money and still drink well. You can flavor your drink just the way you like it. Makes a great gift idea since they probably don’t have one, it will last for years and everytime they use it they will think of you.
