Wilhelm Eder GmbH - Bad Dürkheim

Sawmill - Cooperage - Carpentry

The Wilhelm Eder company stands for German craftsmanship and quality in all its elements. The barrel cooperage is united with the joinery and our own sawmill not only in the raw material wood, but also in its sustainability and an implemented circular economy.

One of our great strengths is our solution-oriented approach. From barrels and vats of different woods, fittings and areas of use to recycled and new furniture, the focus is on quality, starting with the careful selection of wood. Only wood from certified forestry finds its way into our sawmill, where it is given a second life.

The product range is extended by alternative wood products and traded barrels from strong and long-standing partner cooperages as well as high-quality pre-stocked barrels from all over the world.

The entire Wilhelm Eder GmbH team is made up of around 50 colleagues who work hand in hand every day to meet the needs of our customers from all sectors, from production to order processing and shipping.

Part of the philosophy is the great consulting potential tailored to the most diverse individual needs. The intensive examination of the product and the customer's wishes is what makes the perfect pairing with the individually ideal wooden barrel possible.


Comprehensive service includes work beyond the sale. We are also happy to take care of this: 

  • The commissioning of the barrels/vats 
  • Cellar management 
  • Storage and provision 
  • The refurbishment or disposal of barrels 
  • Personalization through individual laser branding or carving 

The family-run company not only focuses on a circular value chain process in its own operations, but is also actively committed to forest protection and conservation. Examples of this include active reforestation through the planting of trees or the sponsorship of a lynx released into the wild in the Palatinate Forest.

Gin barrel 110 l - mulberry
Freshly emptied, highly aromatic 110 l gin barrels from one of Germany's best-known gin distilleries.Pre-emptied gin barrels are a very rare product, as the maturing of gin in wooden barrels has only just gained a fresh impetus. And speaking of fresh - this is precisely the special feature of gin barrels. The tart and herbaceous spice of resin and grass from the juniper berries is an incomparable aroma that can be imparted to your distillate by maturing or finishing it in pre-seasoned gin barrels. The variety and complexity of flavors in gin is an interesting component in the finishing process of distillates. It is not for nothing that gin is a popular player in the bar scene. After all, gin and its aromatics are an indispensable component of many cocktails, which reflects its diversity but also its compatibility. This compatibility of flavors shows how a barrel of gin can add that certain something to your product.The barrels are fitted with a used wooden or plastic stopper as standard. If you would like a new silicone bung, you can order this under accessories (type Standard - C14).The barrels are supplied without barrel storage or trestle.Pre-used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood, external stress cracks or possibly an uneven base are not quality defects, but are rather determined by the nature of the construction and the previous use of the barrels. This does not affect the functionality of the barrel. We check the barrels very carefully for sensory and technical defects during the outgoing inspection. We accept no liability for cracks or fissures that occur during maturation. A possible and reasonable repair is not covered by guarantee.All pictures are examples and optical deviations are possible.
