The barrels are ideal for whisky lovers who want to present their whisky in the proper style. Before the barrels are shipped, they are cleaned with a high pressure hose and the hoops are tightened.
The barrels shows signs of usage and some of the lids are curved. A great present for every whisky lover or you could use it as a display unit for your whiskyshop. Some of the lids are painted.

Ø Head: 60cm
The barrels are technically in a good condition but can no longer be used for foodstuffs. Before the barrels are shipped, they are cleaned with a high pressure hose and the hoops are tightened.
Our decorative barrels are mainly suitable for outdoor use.
If you still want to place the barrel in heated rooms, we highly recommend that the staves are glued by our coopers. (This choice can be selected under 'Accessories').
Your barrel will then remain in a stable condition for a long time.
Every oak barrel is unique.The different colorations are caused by the valuable contents that they once contained. Small notches in the wood or small bumps are not quality defects but rather caused by how it was made and how the barrel was used. Hardly any other piece of furniture exudes as much authenticity, zing and the feel-good factor as a wooden barrel, because they each tell a different story.
