Ruby Port is younger, as matured for a shorter time than Tawny Port.
The advantage of these barrels are the typical port wine notes but in a fruity sweet note, less heavy than a Tawny, therefore perhaps more modern (e.g. for the maturation of gin or grain).
Dimensions ca.: Length of staves: 55 cm Ø Belly: 42 cm Ø Head: 38 cm
By default, the drums 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 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 against sensor and technical errors. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
