One barrel and two distilleries. Fresh, strong and full of flavour.
The first fill was with bourbon in the USA, the second was a 12–15 year fill with Irish whisky in Ireland.
The barrels are top-drilled, ie. the barrels are fitted with two bungholes, one in the belly plus an additional one in the head of the barrel, so that the barrels can be used upright as well as lying flat.
The key point about these barrels is not the flavours associated with new wood, but the saturation of the whisky flavour from the two different fills.
These barrels are perfect for the storing and aging of spirits which need to spend a certain amount of time maturing in the barrel. The barrels are cheaper than one fill barrels and are still quite young and fresh with a full whisky flavour. They are excellent for flavouring beer. These barrels can also be filled with a whole variety of products which would benefit from absorbing the whisky flavour, eg. spices, coffee, cocoa beans, etc.

As standard, the barrels are equipped with a used wooden or plastic bung. If you want a new silicone bung, you can order it under Accessories (type standard - C16).
Used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood, external stress cracks, or in certain circumstances, an uneven base, do not constitute a quality defect, but stem from the idiosyncrasies of the production method and the prior use of the barrels. The usage of the barrel will not be affected by those! The barrels are very carefully checked by us at the exit control for sensory and technical defects. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
