From selected, freshly emptied, highly aromatic barrels in the original sizes between 190 l - 500 l we manufacture the small reclaim barrels in our Wilhelm Eder cooperage. The barrels are made to order. In this way, we ensure that you also benefit from the aroma package of the pre-packaging from the small reclaims.
We do not produce the deconstructions in stock! We keep our promise of freshness and produce the ordered barrels once a month in our cooperage for you. For this reason, the production time may be more than 30 days.
Content sizes: 20 l - 30 l - 50 l - 100 l
Varietal purity: The respective barrel is exclusively reclaimed from a large original barrel, no other woods are used.
Freshness promise: With our freshness promise we guarantee you to rebuild only freshly emptied barrels after we receive your order.

Wilhelm Eder Cooperage: The construction of the barrels is done in our Wilhelm Eder Cooperage by experienced, trained coopers.
Beer: Have you ever thought of owning a used beer barrel? We have just imported these special 400 litre barrels from Belgium. There the barrels, made of French oak, developed a very special flavour profile due to the fantastic ways they were used. Before the beer barrels were used in the brewery, they were filled with Côtes du Rhône red wine for a year. After this first amazing fill, the barrels were used to ferment and mature Geuze beers for one to three years.
Geuze is a special type of beer. It is produced by blending 1-year old and 2-3-year-old Lambik beer. At this point, Lambik beer is not yet fully fermented so that the remaining sugar continues to ferment even after being blended. This occurs partly in the beer barrels and partly after being bottled. Taste-wise, Greuze beer has a distinctive flavour. The use of older hop varieties makes the traditional hop taste almost totally disappear. Instead Geuze beer owes its distinctive taste to the spontaneous fermentation through exposure to the local Brussels yeasts. This creates a complex flavour of lactic and acetic acid tastes. Similar to cider, fresh and tart.

Pre-used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood, external stress cracks or possibly an uneven bottom are not quality defects, but rather determined by the specific nature of the construction and the previous use of the barrels. The functionality of the barrel is not limited by this. The barrels are very carefully checked for sensory and technical defects during the outgoing inspection. We assume no liability for cracks or fissures that occur during the maturing process. A possible and reasonable repair is not a warranty service. Please note that in case of deconstruction the liter numbers are nominal sizes. During calibration there can be deviations.
All pictures are sample pictures and optical deviations are possible.
